Apparently Harriet Harman has decided she wants to ban prostitution. This is the oldest profession in the world, and frankly if someone wants to sell their body for sex then that is there business. Harman said,
"I think we do need to have a debate and unless you tackle the demand side of human trafficking which is fuelling this trade, we will not be able to protect women from it. That is what they've done in Sweden. My own personal view is that's what we need to do as a next step.No denies that illegal trafficking is an issue, but as the UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom noted,
Do we think it's right in the 21st century that women should be in a sex trade or do we think it's exploitation and should be banned? Just because something has always gone on, it doesn't mean you just wring your hands and say there's nothing we can do about it."
"If open borders facilitate legal trade, then by definition it will facilitate illegal trade, and by a much greater degree. With the EU relaxing controls on its internal borders to the east on December 21st, it will be paradise for pimps as they can smuggle more and more people into the country.Personally I think the most important thing to note in Harriet Harman's nannying is that she doesn't seem to be too bothered about rent boys. It's only women in the sex trade that she cares about. So much for her being interested in "equality" huh?
"If these politicians want to do some good rather than posturing, then I suggest leaving legal, consensual prostitution alone and looking at how and why these trafficked women are coming into the country."
