I was reading that the Republic of Ireland has reportedly been identified as a major route for the trafficking of children into the UK. Reports this morning say an official assessment conducted for the Welsh Assembly Government has explicitly named Ireland as a route for such smuggling. The conclusion flies in the face of the stance being taken by the Irish Government, which insists that people trafficking is not a major problem. A recent BBC documentary also highlighted Ireland as a child trafficking route, with one suspect admitting to smuggling children through Rosslare Port. So, who is telling the truth here? Child-trafficking is a depraved business and all responsible Governments should do everything possible to crack down on the villains behind it. Living in denial is not a great response from ANY government.
