  • "At school, we all get taught that the slave trade was abolished in 1833 after a long campaign by William Wilberforce. It was a historic moment of course, but actually rather limited in the grand scheme of things. It stopped the trading of slaves within the British Empire, but in no way did it end slavery. Slavery is still with us, in a variety of forms. Last week, the Anti-Slavery International campaign shone a light on slavery in a place you might not expect: on Britain’s high streets."

  • "And who’ll suffer most from this? Why, those of us who are already chronically sick and disabled, because many of us, as a result of enforced inactivity, are fat – and being fat is now a crime against society. The fat bastard in No. 10 thinks so anyway."
