Now I’ve got your attention!

BBC reports that Harriet Harman wants to ban newspaper adverts for certain escort services:

"Ms Harman said the "ugly" adverts were published in some local newspapers alongside those for skip hire and lost pets.  She added: "You see ‘girls for sale – girls from Europe, from Africa, from Thailand, fresh girls every week, 18 to 25’.  What sort of message does this send in the 21st century?  We do know that there is a big problem of people trafficking.""

I agree with her.  Human trafficking is a massive problem.  This proposal won’t change things fundamentally.  Advertising of these ‘services’ will largely migrate to the internet but society should send a signal about this trade in "fresh girls every week".

I hope Conservatives look kindly on any Government proposals.
