It exists Kevin. For example early 2018 case of white slaves from Poland, Lithuania, Romania and my country held in a flower farm in Cornwall. The difference from the times of pope Gregory and his "non angli sed angeli" or Doomsday census & its 10% slaves of the total population is that nowadays it is illegal. Thank to EU charter of fundamental rights ;)

The whole basis of the Somersett case was that there was no such thing as a slave in English law

Its only very recently that they have been forced to introduce laws.

Slavery is part of the wide constellation of bonded labor ,
it goes from apprenticeship , convict labor , West African children labor being sold by their family to work for a decade on the Cocoa plantation
serfdom in all it's forms , Indians debtors having their labor right sold to British Sugar producers in fidji .......

the characteristic of true slavery is that it is hereditary , the children born of slaves are slaves themselves
this status is enforceable in a court of law ,
the rest is just rhetoric
