SDLP MLA for Newry and Armagh Dominic Bradley has offered his congratulations to Dr Aidan McQuade of Newtowncloughogue who won the Mastermind grand final on BBC TV on Friday night past. Commenting on the victory Bradley said, “Aidan showed an in-depth knowledge of his chosen subject, the life of Abraham Lincoln, along with a wide range of general knowledge. He has been a great ambassador for south Armagh and has made all of us very proud.” “Aidan’s victory helps focus on his very important work as director of Anti-Slavery International which  works at local, national, and international levels to eliminate all forms of slavery around the world. Bradley continued, “Millions of men, women and children around the world are forced to lead lives as slaves. Although this exploitation is often not called slavery, the conditions are the same. People are sold like objects, forced to work for little or no pay and are at the mercy of their ’employers’. “Women from eastern Europe are bonded into prostitution, children are trafficked between West African countries and men are forced to work as slaves on Brazilian agricultural estates. Contemporary slavery takes various forms and affects people of all ages, sex, and race. He added, “We all need to do all in our power to eradicate every form of modern slavery regardless of where it takes place. Supporting Anti-Slavery International is a very effective way of making a contribution –” Councillor Geraldine Donnelly also added her congratulations, “It is a great achievement to win such a prestigious competition which is broadcast to millions of people.  He now joins that elite group of people who have won the famous Mastermind trophy. I congratulate him heartily.
