This is a worrying, if not totally unexpected, development. Kerb crawling is, of course, illegal and a legitimate target for Police Scotland. What concerns me is the mindset displayed by Inspector Campbell who seems to have fully bought into the whole feminist anti prostitution movement; they have rebranded 'prostitution' as 'violence'. More chillingly, a recent paper from the Scottish Government casually lists prostitution as an example of violence against women. Wrong, of course, since sex for money between consenting adults in Scotland is an entirely legal activity; for now, at least. Look what happened in Northern Ireland.
It is not the churches that we should worry about, it's Rhoda Black and her ilk of feminist bigots and man haters. Be assured, these people will soon be back at the door of the Scottish Parliament to have their bigoted views enshrined in law. They will deliberately confuse the issue by conflating prostitution with human trafficking, a vile practise which is already illegal. These people play dirty and paint a picture of the escorting scene which we would not recognise, mainly because it is a distorted picture. None of them have ever as much as spoken to a Service Provider.
If a change in the law is proposed, there will first be a period of consultation. Do not ignore this. Let your views be known, even if anonymously.
One practical action which we can take take is to give Romanians a very wide berth as there is a strong suggestion that many are indeed trafficked. Why do you think they are so bloody unenthusiastic? The less of these types there are around and the less excuse the abolitionists will have to deliberately confuse whoring with human trafficking.
