Canada strikes down ALL of its anti-prostitution laws after sex workers said ban on brothels put them at risk.

This is clearly sense, as is the situaion in NZ, but I believe that the legislation that is adopted can be down to the success or otherwise of the groups and organisations pressing for liberalisation.

While I am very much against street prostitution, such happenings arranged between two consenting adults, for an agreed fee and taking place behind closed doors should be a matter for them and not for silly legislation that seeks to criminalise the act.

After all, what's the difference between booking a WG for an hour, and being lucky enough to pick a girl up at a bar or club, take her home and shag her brains out for free?  Money.  And do we really need such legislation for a financial transaction?  I think not.

Too many in high places have rolled over and let the likes of Ms Harman and Ms McTaggart (no relation, thank god!) push their campaign along the road too far for too long. We live in a demoracy, and who is listening to the rights and needs of WGs who actually enjoy and welcome this type of work, and indeed the punters.  For Harman and McTaggart, theirs is a moral crusade, where they cleverely and sordidly link, inextricably, drugs, pimps, trafficking  and prostitution, after which they get on the PR bandwagon to make the public believe that the only way to cure these ills is by criminalisng men who pay for sex. While I am not suggesting there isn't a link, my view is that it's not as big and widespread as the anti-prostitution lobby claim.

Other countries, such as Switzerland, are dealing with the sex trade with designated areas, but here, such a suggestion receives as much flak as a plan o build a travellers site near your house.

While not as controversial as the HS2 project, the country needs to decide if its going forward with positive views and thinking on the how the age old problem is dealt with, or whether we return to puritain times, where even the smallest part of exposed breast in advertising is verboten ?

Good post, a problem here is its people like Julie Bindel in the media that are part of this moral crusade against prostitution so her and her ilk do all they can to push their views while the truth rarely gets an outing. Some people who know nothing about prostitution then just believe the guff they read without questioning it. These are the sheep who dont bother thinking for themselves but have allowed the media to think for them which of course suits Bindel and Harridan.

IMO as i have posted before if Harridan gets back into a position to do so if Labour get back in in 2015 i have no doubt she will try to criminalise all punters, whether she will get enough support might depend on the Labour majority. The coalition made crystal clear they had no plans in this parliament to even consider new legislation. Also new legislation isnt needed in my view apart from the upping of sentences for convicted traffickers to life which i very much agree with.

There are already more than enough laws around prostitution in my view, the street scene is illegal for both WG and punter, yet still continues despite it literally couldnt be easier to nick punters as the police know where RLDs are, when they will be operating and often who works and uses them. Brothels are also already illegal yet allowed to operate dependent on the attitude of top cops in any given area, and coercion is the offence Harridan got passed in 2009/10. New laws arent needed in my view.

Whatever happens prostitution will continue and of course Harridan, Bindel and their ilk know this, they just choose to ignore the consequences to both WGs and punters when punting goes further underground.

The positive is passing a law to criminalise all punters is one thing, it doesnt mean the police will enforce such a law. Armitt the police lead on prostitution says he sees nothing wrong with consentual adults doing what they choose to do indoors. Even if he did view it as wrong, to enforce such a law would require huge resources, i dont for a minute believe they will be given. Like Harridans coercion law any new law will actually be designed to scare punters off punting in the first place and no doubt it will discourage some. Like Prohibition in America, prostitution will ALWAYS find a way, outlawing something thats going to happen anyway and enforcing that law when so many people are breaking it would be impossible to police i believe. To catch punters punting with Indies would be in particular extremely expensive in my opinion.

Its a great pity Harridan and her ilk dont wish to listen to WGs and punters.

Julie Bindel and Harriet Harman are not interested in the views of prostitutes because they would not be told what they want to hear. They firmly believe that no woman chooses to be a prostitute --------------- despite the fact that they can easily earn in excess of £50K a year tax free.    :hi:

Yes how else can a average woman make that sort of cash?.......Member of Parliament perhaps.  :D

Many on this thread seem to be under a misapprehension. The laws have not been 'struck down' as any of us would understand it. They will continue on a temporary basis and will then be watered down, but will still exist. The BBC version is a little clearer:
