Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The ultimate irony of the unholy alliance between social conservatives and economic reactionaries may well be that the policies facilitated by this alliance make prostitution a common path for young, educated women to follow if they wish to both get an education and get out of debt sufficiently to hope to start and to raise a family. This should be horrifying to groups such as The Family Alliance in the USA, but it probably won't faze them as they will just write the phenomenon off as 'failure to resist temptation', with the temptation being essential to the prized 'free will'. I don't really know if the same dynamic is at work in the U.K. or if there are groups similar to Focus on the Family and Family Alliance in the UK.
