The other day the BBC ran an article on what they referred to as Sham Marriages which irritated me anyway, I don't care why people get married and i hate the pretence that marriage has always and forever been about love and reports like this totally stir up racism and anti immigration sentiment. But the thing that really made me angry about the report was there was no discussion of the woman's position in the transaction. One of the woman in the linked clip is a Roma woman who speaks no English and sure as hell does not look happy about the situation. Apparently most of the women involved are Eastern European and speak no or little English. The transactions are made between the men and the men organising are given the money not the woman. Seriously? can anybody say "people trafficking"? because it appears the BBC don't recognise it when they see it
