    ‘The number of modern slavery offences recorded by police has increased by more than 50% in a year, figures reveal, as the UK government published a plan to tackle the crime in its own supply chains.

    Police recorded 5,144 modern slavery offences in the year ending March 2019, data published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows, a 51% rise over the previous 12 months, when 3,412 were recorded.’

    Disturbing, I suspect it is down to more awareness about Modern Slavery; the earlier figures were (probably still are) under reported and the new figures are heading towards the true extent of the crime.

    Globalisation and the free movement of people have a lot to answer for.

    I am not surprised, I remember Tommy Robinson fighting also against this happening.
    And as always, we only see the tip of the iceberg. A lot of cleansing will happen the coming years I think

    I am surprised that anything good has been reported about Tommy Robinson in the MSM.

    If they think that they can blacken his character they will try to name and shame him but when they can’t they refer to him as a passer-by as demonstrated here - Press Promote Tommy - From 'Nazi' To 'Passer-By'

    That acclaimed leader of the Left, Tony Blair exploited freedom of movement when he used it to import his new voter base.

    This allowed him and the Labour party to crap all over the working class.

    A voter base is not slave labour.

    And have you actually checked non the requirements for voting before making your accusation?

    To apply for citizenship with permanent residence status you must usually have lived in the UK for 12 months after getting permanent residence status. You also need a permanent residence document that proves you've lived in the UK for 5 years
    Check if you can become a British citizen


    Who can register (to vote)
    You can register if you’re both:
    • aged 16 or over (or 14 or over in Scotland)
    • a UK citizen (or an Irish, EU or Commonwealth citizen with a permanent UK address
    Register to vote

    This sounds like Republicans claiming that Obama imported a bunch of Mexicans to vote Democratic.
    That was blatantly false, but it resonated with enough badly informed people to become a thing.
    This sounds similar to me.

    If sex slaves count in this thread then Tommy Robinson is one of the very few brave enough to report about it.

    "Tommy this, an' Tommy that ...an' Tommy go away"

    There is only one parliamentarian brave enough to talk about it and defend Tommy’s right to talk about it.

    UKIP Peer Malcolm Lord Pearson has written to Home Secretary Sajid Javid today saying : if Tommy is murdered or injured in prison he and others will mount a private prosecution against Mr Javid as an accessory, or for misconduct in public office.
