Forced marriage to be made illegal

There is a movement towards making forced marriage illegal in Britain. It already IS, of course, but is not a specific charge, instead more obscure charges like kidnapping are used.

Forced marriaged are a simply unnaceptable abuse of human rights; while we should respect cultural differences, there are some points we cannot permit- generally, any practice which severely infringes the rights of others. This, I think, is one of them. This is a very positive mood, and one I hope will be met with appreciation by most of the UK.
