More is needed from David Cameron to back up his claims

An article in the New Statesman has pointed at the necessity for the Prime Minister to address the issue of slavery in Britain in a more directed way.

Whilst the recent Modern Day Slavery Bill has been exciting to follow, and the government have made promising noises, recent news headlines have only served to highlight what has long been recognised as the crime that is often forgotten by society.

Of particular concern is the lack of ‘Transparency in Supply Chains’ – whilst speaking up bravely against modern slavery, the government often fails to deliver when the issue is close to home.  Many people would be horrified to know where their food on the supermarket shelves or their budget clothes had been made.  Cheap prices still make many turn their backs on such unsavoury facts.

Unlike the Abolition of Slavery, when Britain led the way, it is now the US who are forcing issues, particularly when it comes to making demands of businesses.  It seems that British politics is still not following through on what they are preaching.
