The last form of slavery in the UK

Slavery was abolished in the UK in 1812 after a long fight by abolitionists figureheaded and led by William Wilberforce. It happened at a time when Britain was fighting for its life against the Napoleonic Empire and was enforced by the British Navy. There were other amendments and laws passed in later years as the public realised that the enslavement of others elsewhere was a true crime against humanity. Still the practice went on in some (notably islamic) countries where Africans were sold by their own to Arab traders in a similar manner to how they were sold to Europeans previously... something those who go on about slavery and demanding an apology seem to always omit.
Yet in the UK today there's a form of slavery still ongoing, it's child brides and the perpetrators are still as ever muslims...
ITV.
Religious leaders appeared willing to agree to perform underage marriages at some mosques across the UK, an ITV investigation has discovered.
Two undercover reporters called 56 mosques for Exposure to ask whether they would perform the marriage of a 14-year-old girl.
Two-thirds of those contacted refused to perform the marriage, and many of them made clear they found the request abhorrent. But 18 of the respondents spoken to agreed.
An undercover reporter called the Al Quba Mosque and Shahporan Islamic centre, in Manchester, posing as a single mother who wanted to have an Islamic marriage, known as a nikah, for her 14-year-old daughter.
The Imam at this mainstream mosque, with a congregation of one thousand, told her "that's not going to be a problem".
'Not going to be a problem' despite it being against the laws of this (and many other) lands, but for a muslim our laws simply don't apply and as their paedo prophet was quite happy marrying a six year old and deflowering her at nine, then that's good enough for a muslim male...
Whilst Christians and Buddhists along with other religions can look to their founder as being a true holy man and worthy of emulation, muslims frankly have a major problem with their founder being not the sort most people who know the historical Mohammed would wish to emulate in a thousand years. Well other than someone who has a natural bent towards murder, theft, delusions of holiness, paedophilia, misogyny, adultery, slavery etc. to name but a few of Mohammed's vices.
This is at part the reason why muslims are so defensive due to a severe lack of knowledge about their beliefs, they are told very little about the dark side of their so called prophet... whom I don't believe prophesied anything.
When confronted with the facts most of them believe you're lying and those that know and still carry on well what the imam said is the direct result of Mohammed's crimes against humanity.
Yet again and again we are told islam is a religion of peace (it isn't) that it's tolerant (it isn't) that it's the fastest growing religion (not true either)
Our politicians have allowed a dangerous creed to take root in our midst, one that does not respect our laws and traditions and who sees anyone not a muslim male as an inferior.
One day there will come a reckoning with islam, I just hope for our sakes it's not too late and civilisation wins.

Civilisation always wins. It also always takes time.

This is exactly the sort of story I really need to avoid, it makes my blood boil and steam actually appears from my ears.
As someone who was in a terribly abusive marriage (not to an ethnic) but a brutal and abusive marriage none the less, these breaches of women/ childrens rights makes me really sad and angry.
The misogynistic muslim males see this as the normal way to behave.
So much for all the leftie integration clap trap, if this was a main stream mosque, and if they will do this (which is clearly against the law of the land they all say they are so desperate to integrate into) what other atrocities will they perpetrate.
I hope Mr Camoron has seen the ITV piece about his lovely mooslimes and their moral standards, or rather lack there of .

Two thirds told the reporters to eff off, which is good, but there is another form of slavery which admittedly isn't as horrific. The practice of forcing benefit claimants to work a 40 hour week for zero pay in order to keep their benefits. So the tax payer pays for free labour which the State farms out to their buddies in commerce, no doubt for plenty of donations at election time.

Another thing that was touched upon by one of the Iman's interviewed, was being allowed to marry, under Sharia Law, up to FOUR wives.

We really need to get a grip of these people.

Four wives ? Jeez, one is more than enough for me. Therein lies the doom of this archaic 'religion'; four wives might work in a desert when the only temptation for your wives is a camel, but are somewhat more difficult to cope with in a suburb of, say, Romford.

Well...no. A nikah performed here has no legal force, unlike the same ceremony performed in e.g. Pakistan.

Sociologically the problem is that the parents and imams clearly think this pantomime-ceremony will make legal things which are not legal within the terms of the Sexual Offences Act 2003.

It might be possible therefore to use s.14 (or maybe some other) as this could be made a child protection matter.

It is a choice; do we take a softly-softly approach in order to protect the children involved or do we risk several high-profile and well-publicized prosecutions to make it clear that this must not happen? One of the difficulties I have with this area is that it would be wrong to think that there is universal support for 16 as the AoC.
