(not satire – it’s the UK today!)
Humberside Police have said they are seeing an increase in prostitution – with young mothers turning to selling their bodies for the first time in order to feed and clothe their children.
Here’s a direct quote from PC Lorraine Summerfield from Humberside Police:
Some of these girls are desperate to feed and clothe their children and they are going out to do that, which is really sad.
The number of girls working had reduced but, recently, it has flared up again and it is because new girls are going out, who have never done it before.
There have been a lot more who have come to it recently later in life because they are so desperate for cash. They don’t want to commit crime so they are selling themselves because it is an easy way to make money and feed their family.
OK – so that’s what Osborne, Cameron and Clegg meant when they said work should pay:
Prostitution for our nation’s young mothers.
