Britain may contain up to 60 million slaves
AS many as 60 million slaves could be living in Britain, it was claimed last night.
Experts said the slaves were being forced to do horrible, demeaning jobs and live in disgusting conditions.
Tom Logan, director of SlaveWatch, said: “We reckon they are being lured from schools and universities and then forced to work for about eight hours a day doing something completely pointless for a wage so small it may as well not exist.
“They are kept in tiny, beige-carpeted rooms, usually near dual carriageways or retail parks. Often these rooms contain little more than a television, a beige sofa and a Wii.”
He added: “We believe that every morning they are all crammed into filthy cattle trucks that take them to their hellish workplaces.
“These workplaces have a hierarchy of slaves. The senior slaves will be given slightly better rations in exchange for being especially pointless.
“And, of course, everything smells of urine.”
But last night one of the alleged slaves, Bill McKay, said the accusations were ‘unfounded’ and insisted he was happy with his lot.
“The work is quite staggeringly pointless but I could leave any time I want as long as I didn’t mind giving up my Ford Focus and my gym membership.
“I even have enough money to buy deep fried chicken once a week.
“And that, if you really think about it, is the definition of freedom.”
