I actually voted NO.
Call me paradoxical (or various other things
) but I did this because the current tolerated system works better than legalised parlours would.
Public support for legalised brothels is about zero. The restrictions that would be put in place would make parlours unworkable.
There would be a licensing system both for owners and the premises. Full CRB checks etc, premises - forget it if its near a school, church, on a residential street. Strictly limited number of parlours allowed in any given area.
There would then be a merciless clampdown on unlicensed places. Running an unlicensed brothel would be guaranteed prison. Probably make it an offence to work or punt in an unlicensed place.
No night shifts. Maximum 12 hrs per day opening, lights out by 11pm
Quite possibly a mandatory membership system for punters....proper ID required...would you want to hand over your passport at a knocking shop?
Then again, its better than what Harriet Harlot would do if she ever has any power again
