Anti Climax

apparently the WM hasn’t seen the flood of forced prostitution which had been predicted by alarmists. Shrill warnings leading up to the month long event predicted some 40,000 sex workers invading Germany and a corresponding increase in the number of women brought into the country and forced to work as prostitutes by traffickers.

“Before the World Cup there were rumors circulating about a large rush of prostitutes,” Cologne city spokesman Jürgen Müllenberg said. “But neither legal nor illegal prostitution has significantly risen.”

In fact some disappointed sex workers have complained that the WM fans seem to have neither the time nor the funds to spend on their services. Despite the fact that the feared invasion did not occur many feel that the increased attention brought to the plight of the trafficking victims and the efforts to educate the customers of sex workers will nonetheless have positive results in the long term. Play On!

    Yep, soccer fans have just been to busy partying. Congressman Christopher Smith’s predictions turned out to be wrong. I hope he notices or at least someone will tell him.

    William, thanks for the link in your post.
