Army Numbers Fall Again

UNODOC estimate that over 70% of the world’s prostitutes are trafficked. The EU put the figures in member states with legal sex industries as being higher. Trafficking includes those who voluntarily move to work in the second industry only to find that their terms of employment are very different to what they were lead to believe.

Whatever, the Army treating using whores as a V&S issue is entirely coherent with anti-trafficking legislation which clearly identifies the sex trade as being a major trafficker.
Veering waaay off topic, but I really don't believe this for a moment. I've got absolutely no experience, directly or indirectly, of the situation in Europe and I realise Thailand may not be "representative" but I know quite a few "working" / ex-working boys and girls here who've worked abroad (Switzerland, Korea, Japan, Dubai, etc) and although none were trafficked claiming you were if caught wasn't just routine but automatic. Admit you were "working" of your own volition and you're in line for not just deportation but blacklisting and a prison sentence; claim you were "traficked" and you get a guaranteed "get out of jail free card", you may get deported but you could equally be on your way to becoming a legal refugee and an immigrant, and you get a grant from the UN0DC (and others) so you can set yourself up in another line of business.

What do you expect them to say?

I'm not suggesting traficking in the sex trade doesn't happen, but 70%?
 
..... most bints do it because they are forced to or because they are really desperate for the money.
I'm not disagreeing for the sake of it, and I agree that certainly most do it for the money rather than "job satisfaction", but are you just assuming they're "forced to" or "really desperate for the money", or do you have something to base that on?

It may apply (I'm pretty sure it does) to those who are "really desperate" for their next crack fix, etc, which is probably more of a factor in the West, but amongst those I know while it'd be blinkered to say "it's just a job", for some it beats flipping burgers in McD's or cutting sugar cane. It's as simple as that.

Well I suppose that's one way of cutting loses.
THE Army has reversed former defence Secretary Gavin Williamson’s zero tolerance drugs policy for soldiers.
Wow .....

"A memo sent to commands last month confirmed the old policy will be “reinstated”.

It says: “Commanding officers are well placed to judge whether a service person has made an uncharacteristic error of judgement and to assess whether a second chance is appropriate.”

The memo says the Army is “not softening its approach to drug taking" and says drug misuse is incompati le with service life and it“erodes operational effectiveness”.

But it adds: “The policy is coherent with our aim of delegating decisions to those best placed to make them and those who know their people best.”

.....
delegating decisions to those best placed to make them ..... whatever next .....

I don't think they actually meant 99.99% need not apply Trigger. I think they may have been telling a little bit of a joke.
Indeed, but it showed a very poor understanding of psychology.

Its wonderful. COs don't have delegated powers to keep a bar open, but do have delegations to give drug-addled scrotes a second chance. Rather perverse.

You need to do some research into Germany’s sex industry. Industry is the right term; it’s on a factory scale. It’s fuelled by trafficked women from Eastern Europe; countries with freedom of movement within the EU so the passport/ work permit thing is irrelevant. They pay the German Government up front before earning any money. Then they pay their pimp. Ten or more customers later, they make some money.

You also need to read the UN definition of trafficking. The girls in Rotherham were trafficked.....they were white, ethnic English and born in Rotherham. The global sec trade is abhorrent, abusive and exploitative.

On the amount of pimps cashing in.
There is a escort service in Med hat that is "Ran by women, for women" until you decide to not pay and hide in your mate hotel room, then a large member of the HA wearing his colours comes around and boots your door in.
Most street prozzies are smack/crack heads who buy off their pimp.
 
Not sure that what Germany has done is liberalisation. Prostitution has always been legal in Germany; what they did was change the tax laws. Prostitutes have to be licensed and pay tax, including VAT. Most states charge the tax up front as a daily charge; the girls pay it daily whether or not they work.

Given that some estimates say over half of Germany’s sex workers are trafficked, it means that the German Government is actually complicit in and profiteering from trafficking. Hence my initial comment.

The whole thing stinks.
East Germany banned it. After the wall came down it was alright to deal in women.
 
Not really, I doubt few people like being fucked repeatedly by strangers unless its for a great deal of cash, most bints do it because they are forced to or because they are really desperate for the money.
The going rate in 74 was DM30. Our FFR was something like DM6.50 to the £ so it was under a fiver for a jump.

In 1974 that was more than half a days wages for a lot of people
 
Oh ffs just block him. It's got to the point where the secondary contamination from people arguing with him is as bad as the troll himself

Good. We had a perfectly workable and sensible policy in place until the then Defence Secretary knee jerked to Daily Mailesqe headlines and f*cked it up.

Back to Commanders being able to use their own judgement within a framework of policy.

Obviously completely vetoable by the Brigade Commander..

Having seen the Eastern Europeans who were plying their trade in Pattaya I prefer not to.
