This is our truth, tell us yours
The Guardian reports the adoption of Mary Honeyball’s ‘report’ here.
Leave aside the arrogance of calling one woman’s opinions, and those of her fanbase, a report. Leave aside the vexed question of whether the EU should have a policy in an area which is not within its legislative competence (like a local authority having a policy on space exploration, it’s not really hugely relevant, and, arguably, not a productive use of time and money).
Just ask yourself this. In fact, play it as a parlour game with your loved ones. How, if Honeyball’s opinions became law, would you enforce them, without victimizing the person committing no offence (the sex worker).
Go on. Have a go. Think about it. Then you’ll see Honeyball’s own goal. She has no way of ducking the accusation that she wants to victimize sex workers, because there is no way to implement her proposals without victimizing sex workers.
