Beastly souls everywhere. If only the angels of mercy would swoop down and separate the wheat from the chaff and do unto them as they have done unto others. That would set a memorable example as to what might happen to you if you just can't seem to suppress your evilness. Thanks Rose and Vivien.

Thanks, Rose & Vivien
It seems unbelievable - yet this kind of thing appears to be happening in several (?many? - did we but know it?) places. I don't have the link handy, but someone posted a story only a few weeks ago about something similar happening to Mexican illegal immigrant children in the South.

I haven't followed the evolution of British law - but 30 years ago, a Chief Inspector informed us that it was not illegal to sell or buy humans IN the UK - the Law was against importing slaves/ for slavery (therefore it was presupposed that there would be no buying or selling). [The context was fund-raising for Afghan refugees - and Doris Lessing was one of a group of VIPs being "sold" to raise funds! Someone had called the police ...]

International Conventions have had to go a long way to redefine "slavery" in recent decades - so now, thank goodness, trafficking is linked to slavery under law in many countries .... and the "conditions" that define slavery have been adjusted to fit today's criminal structures (Common sense should have been sufficient ... but .... interests win out over sense any day)

"It is estimated that millions of people across the world are victims of modern day slavery, trafficked across borders and forced to work in servitude. " A very sobering thought. Thanks, Rose.
