Our thanks to Mike P for this. An extract, emphases ours:
Last night former health visitor Brid Hehir, who has written about the ‘evangelism’ of anti-FGM campaigners, said: ‘After all the training and awareness-raising and data collection, there is nothing to suggest that we have an FGM problem in this country, let alone an epidemic.’
The latest news comes after The Mail on Sunday disclosed that almost all FGM cases performed in this country were actually legal piercings carried out on adults.
Between April 2015 and September 2017, a total of 14,250 individual patients were recorded with FGM. But detailed analysis shows that just 57 victims had the practice performed in the UK. [J4MB: 0.4% of the total.] And of those, 84 per cent were legal genital piercings. [J4MB: So why describe these 48 women as ‘victims’?]
