Author Topic: Prostitution inquiry launched - Select Committee  (Read 1748 times)

No, I don't think they want to listen to the people involved but the higher the number of signatures then, hopefully, the more notice they take. I do realise I sound a little (a lot?) idealistic but something is better than nothing. I hope they take account of their detractors but I don't hold too much hope - it does sound like they've decided their answer already.

Idealistic or not, you have to have goals.

I think the only way of defeating this kind of legislation is to persuade parliament that prostitution is a legitimate occupation, and that in certain circumstances it is of great benefit. Think disabled people etc (even though some don't recognise they have a right to a sex life). An uphill battle if the wording and the silly picture on the inquiry webpage is anything to go by.

To me, politics over past several years has descended into a load of sententious sound bites and general ideas. Hardly any of it develops into formal policy and gets fully implemented. On that basis I find it hard to envisage this actually becoming law.
On a wider note I'd love to know the cost to taxpayer of these endless committees, enquiries and groups that seldom deliver any meaningful or substantive outcomes.

On that basis I find it hard to envisage this actually becoming law.

Not much over a year ago I thought much the same. There was lots of scoffing at the idea of any part of the UK implementing the Nordic model. I remember a lot of speculation in particular regarding Scotland. But now it's reality, it's here already, in N.I.

Complacency is very dangerous. It could well be the strategy to soft pedal action against punters in N.I. while it's rolled out UK wide with little opposition. In other words by stealth. Then what happens? The nightmare of Sweden and Norway?

Don't forget Canada has gone that way too after a period of it seeming impossible.

What worries me about this inquiry over and above the appallingly prejudicial terms of reference noted above is that I see no recognisable 'granularity' acknowleged within the term 'sex worker'.
There is a range of activity involved here from Completely Illegal to Totally Legal:
COMPLETELY ILLEGAL
Street workers (also illegal are kerb-crawler punters)
Street Workers in acknowleged Red Light areas. Rare and risk being 'moved on' if nuisance is caused.
Parlour Workers (generally legal unless tainted by management of or earning from) Police seem to turn a blind eye unless there are complaints.
Agency Workers. Broadly legal though a real trap for punters if girl is under duress which seems quite possible in this area. Repeal of strict liability offence brought in in 2012 might encourage more reporting by punters though 'Crimestoppers' remains open to them
Independent Escorts working alone: Essentially COMPLETELY LEGAL.

This does not attempt to be more than a superficial classification of the range I see.  My point is that if this Parliamentary Committee doesn't have some kind of appreciation of the range of activity it will all be a dogs breakfast. (It probably will anyway!)

The inquiry mentions violence against women only.  Clearly this is more heterosexual man-shaming legislation engineered by the evil feminazis.  What a coincidence Merkel is the worse feminazi of the lot.  The EU will be behind all this.

What about gay male prostitution or male prostitutes for women?
Also aren't porn stars prostitutes too, because they get paid to have sex?

Quote
Written evidence is invited on the following issues:

Whether criminal sanction in relation to prostitution should continue to fall more heavily on those who sell sex, rather than those who buy it.
What the implications are for prostitution-related offences of the Crown Prosecution Service's recognition of prostitution as violence against women.
What impact the Modern Slavery Act 2015 has had to date on trafficking for purposes of prostitution, what further action is planned, and how effectively the impact is being measured.
Whether further measures are necessary, including legal reforms, to:
- Assist those involved in prostitution to exit from it
- Increase the extent to which exploiters are held to account
- Discourage demand which drives commercial sexual exploitation

It's a stitch-up.  Nowhere does it suggest decriminalisation.  They aren't going to listen to some punters complaining that their right to "commit violence against women" (as the feminazis frame it) will be impinged.

There is some hope because the Tories know that all the single mothers who have had their benefits cut need to make money to eat somehow.   :sarcastic:

This petition supports decriminalisation on both sides,

Neither being a prostitute or visiting a prostitute is a criminal offence in the UK  :hi:

A fucking committee chaired by Keith Vaz, who is the slimiest politician there is (apart from Tom Watson) questioning the morality of others.

But seems like the pricks in charge want to criminalise us evil blokes to pacify some delusional religious types.

No need to change anything we don't want Nordic prossie model, its plain to see the Nordic countries are now the cess pit of Europe with their liberal nonsense !

Anyone that suggests these Nordic countries are an example to follow needs to be sectioned or shot !

Yep, Sweden got rid of the Swedish punters and replaced them with Muslim rapists!

Just what we need they are a poor example to follow with the exception of crime drama which they seem to excel at recently, possibly dues to the pond life they welcomed wit open arms !

Great article on it here:

We should be glad that beardy weirdy Corbyn has selected John McDonnell as a senior opposition figure. He is a genuine and effective campaigner for sex workers' rights - he helped defeat the last attempt to criminalise punters.

The clueless cunts need to read UKP if they want to learn anything.

And why would they?
SP's reviewed on here are way too long in the tooth for their particular predilections if you believe even half the historical revelations. Enquiry keeps being promised - expect the findings circa 2035 when they are all too cold to face prosecution.
