    I’m sorry for the men who were abused, but what type of person writes in the way the article was? It seems an excessive use of needlessly complicated wording.

    The original article is from the guardian and is much more coherent. It seems whatever bksfe is just copied the original article and ran it through a script randomly replacing some words with synonyms to look like they wrote it themselves or to avoid showing up on plagiarism detection software.

    Eg:
    Chinese seafarers with British wives and accouchement were “coerced” into boats abrogation Liverpool afterwards the additional apple war in a “racially inflected” abstruse government programme, the Home Office has admitted.
    Vs

    Chinese seafarers with British wives and children were “coerced” into boats leaving Liverpool after the second world war in a “racially inflected” secret government programme
    accouchement (countable and uncountable, plural accouchements)

    Delivery in childbed; parturition quotations ▼

    No idea where "apple war" comes from
