    Who the feck is paying for this?

    Stolen from BBC News Webtulipe

    An 11-year-old girl has been rescued from a forced marriage, the Home Office has said.
    Minister Baroness Scotland said the girl, who was born in Britain, was taken to Bangladesh at the age of six to care for her disabled mother.

    At 11, she was forced into marriage but her aunt in the UK reported the case to authorities who brought her back to Britain and put her in foster care.

    It is one of 5,000 cases handled by the government's forced marriage unit.

    Baroness Scotland told the BBC's Asian Network: "We've just rescued an 11-year-old who'd been forced into marriage, who'd been raped.

    "Since she was six she'd been looking after her disabled mother and two siblings. And with the help of her aunt we were able to rescue her and bring her back."

    The forced marriage unit was set up just over two years ago to help victims and survivors of forced marriage.

    It deals with 250 cases a year and has rescued 300 people, many of them very young girls.

    News of the rescue coincides with the launch of a new handbook, offering survivors help and information.

    A survivors' network has also been launched in partnership with Karma Nirvana, a forced marriage NGO, to provide long-term emotional support.

    Baroness Scotland said: "Forced marriage is terrible for those women, children and men who find themselves in an often violent and abusive situation against their will.

    "It's something that should not be happening in the modern world - it's not a respected cultural or religious tradition.

    "Neither does it have anything to do with honour - there can be no honour in a marriage based on force and hostility."
    Oh I fecking despair, I really do!

    Why the hell are we the worlds fecking social worker?

      Didn't they base a religion around this kind of thing?
      How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think

        What a grumpy old b*stard you can be sometimes Churchy!!!

        Come on man - it's a kid ffs! Can't you just be happy to have played a part in helping someone?

        What about reading this story and thinking "jesus, I'm pleased I dont come from that world - we're all truly blessed in this country"? instead of getting your knickers in a twist about the 0.0000000001p that you've probably paid towards it.

        The pope is a tard.

                    Erm, nope.

                    Why does this country have a whole department set up to handle forced marriages?

                    Does France, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Poland, Russia, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, the USA, Mexico, China, Japan, Canada?
