Bath Babes was a brothel though? In the eyes of the law.
I dare say it was. However, we hear constantly about rising crime, cuts in police budgets, dwindling police numbers, thin blue lines and all the rest of it. Presumably the police set themselves priorities like 'let's put what resources we have into preventing and solving the most serious crimes and keeping the public safe". The most serious crimes might include murder, gbh, rape, gun crime, drug trafficking, human trafficking and so on and so forth. These are all crimes which do harm to people and threaten their safety. They are also crimes which are often difficult and sometimes dangerous to prevent /solve. Closing down a brothel which has done nobody any harm and given a lot of people pleasure should not, in my opinion, rank anywhere near the top of police priorities. They just do it because it's easy. As I say, they ought to spend their time and all too scarce resources on things that really matter, not on things that don't.
