    What a wonderful example of human compassion.

    It's a horrible story and just goes to show how far behind some 'cultures' are in their advancement

    However, there have been a number of generations born since the initial influx of immigrants who first came to work in the mills and factories.

    Forced marriages effect people who've lived here all their lives, who are as British as you or me - not just fresh faced immigrants. It's just something which has often gone on behind the scenes for years.

    The government have only really became aware of it fairly recently for various reasons, mainly due to (like rape) not many people reporting it in the past or not feeling they'd get any support...plus obviously until support schemes are put in place, people aren't going to want to be ostrocised ( ) from their family. Where would they go?

    More and more cases are being reported every year now, and thankfully progress is being made.

    And it's still not even against the fecking law in this country, so as far as educating people go, I think we need to start there really.

    If your main problem is that we have those funny looking foreigners daring to live in this country in the first place, then at least have the balls to be honest and just say that.

    Yes, forced marriages wont effect you personally. Or me personally for that matter. But it's an issue which effects a large % of the ethnic population who live here. So what's the problem? Or are they not as deserving to the police's help as you?
