An increase in trafficking

A fellow Green has pointed out to me that our Coalition government has refused to sign an EU directive on human trafficking. This document would have tightened up regulations on international pimping and increased inter-country co-operation to fight it. What’s not to like?

 I’ve tried in vain to find out what reasons Cameron and Clegg gave, but the reason being inferred by Labour is simply the ‘EU’ part; they are asserting their anti-Europe credentials.

 Hang on, I hear you say, since when did the Lib Dems have, or want, anti-EU credentials? And why should the delectable Mr Clegg want to obstruct a measure attacking modern slavery? These are good questions and I’m genuinely seeking answers. Do let me know, Lib Dem readers…..

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
