The ORIGINAL gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)
I shouldn't take that figure too seriously: the Home Office seem to have found it in their rear end.Mind you, it is known that rich Arabs in London treat their servants quite oppressively. In Britain, "slavery" is a vibrancy thing.
And I would wager we have the same thing here in the US....under the H1B Visa program wherein foreign nationals are brought into this country (usually by foreign national owners of staffing companies). They are offered a position at a rate 1/3rd the cost of US workers and if for some reason the position is put on hold or cancelled, the worker is left to rot with no income and at the mercy of the employer (aka "master") for subsistence. Further, the employer can "renegotiate" the salary/pay rate once the person is here in the US on a visa that the employer is sponsoring. Without that sponsorship, they are here illegally or can be deported at the whim of the employer. The employers can essentially abuse the employee in any way they wish and if the employee complains, he's deported or worse. Slavery has not left us....and the H1B Visa system is wrought with abuse.
It is said that slaves have but one obligation - slaughtering their masters ...III
I thought the UK government owned 64 million subjects.
