Forced marriage is not a crime!

Cultural relativism.

Forced marriage should be an abhorrent crime but in New Britain it is a 'cultural problem' and treated 'sensitively' so that no-one is offended and no electoral votes are lost. It is claimed by New Labour that to make it a specific crime would only drive it underground ! This is a weird type of logic. As it seems pretty much underground at the moment.

The Metropolitan police have called for forced marriage to be made a criminal offence, suggesting a link between the practice and “honour” killings and arguing that it would make prosecutions easier. However, the government rejected this.
