I thought Tommy Robinson was covering the trials where we were banging that sort up?

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””] Record numbers of children have been identified by police as “modern slaves” exploited by criminal gangs for drug running, theft and sex, a report reveals today. The number of “live” police investigations under the modern slavery act where children are involved has risen from 53 in 2017 to 475 this year, according to the co-ordinating Government-funded police unit.

Well, yes. The Modern Slavery Act is from 2015. It takes a bureaucracy a few years to get up to speed on anything at all. We are surprised that there are more investigations this year under a new Act than there were last year?
