Child trafficking not seen as a child protection issue
The hidden world of child sexual exploitation hit the headlines last week, with the announcement by children's minister Tim Loughton of a new action plan to tackle the crime. This was a welcome acknowledgment that child trafficking is a much bigger problem than the government thought.
Note: I have a theory on this. Here goes...
Sexually trafficked children are damaged and not as adoptable as a healthy white newborn, and therefore must be sold at a discount, creating a potential loss in revenue for the British Child Protective Industry. And we all know that British social workers don't help kids.
It's all about the money. They don't really care about the kids.
