Labour condemns UK 'opt out' from EU directive against sex trafficking

David Cameron and Nick Clegg stand accused of sending the "wrong signal" to pimps and human traffickers across the world after the coalition decided against endorsing an EU directive designed to co-ordinate European efforts to combat the trade in sex slaves.
As new figures show that fewer traffickers are being jailed than at any time in the last five years, Labour called for a government rethink on the directive, appealing to the pro-European Liberal Democrats to explain to their coalition partners the benefits of EU action.

When the New Labour of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown were in government. They did nothing regarding the trafficking of people into the country. Now these people are criticising the new government for the same inaction.

Just like the old government, they realise that if they do opt-in , then they are legally responsible for helping these victims of slavery.  Better to see no evil.

Same old, same old.
