Emily, Lucy & Paul Givan interviewed on 'Good Morning Ulster'
Interesting sex work feature on BBC Radio's 'Good Morning Ulster' this morning. Starts at 37 minutes in and should be available to listen for the next 30 days:
It includes Emily, an English escort working in Belfast, Lucy Smith of Ugly Mugs and Christian fundamentalist and NI MLA Paul Givan. Yes, he of the infamous 'conscience clause' who was pig ignorant to Laura Lee in Stormont last year.
The interviewer (Conor Bradford) puts some good points to Givan, including the recent Westminster rejection of client criminalisation and the tiny number of trafficking cases in NI. He also makes him admit that he wants to stamp out prostitution. Givan's agenda is showing, but then we all already knew this was about a moral crusade.
2014 in Northern Ireland:
Number of reported attacks on sex workers 70
Number of sex trafficking cases ZERO
