No government would ever be brave enough to bring in such controversial legislation, if Ms Harman would have had her way all punting would have become illegal.
I bet all the Indies are celebrating, with less brothels available they should get more business.
Fully agree. The better sensible option is not the one that governments choose though. Legalising brothels would help Indies as well as I thought for a long time (including when I started punting) that prostitution in all forms was illegal and I suspect there are many more men out there who think the same.
Indies could advertise as a more intimate service than a brothel and with potentially a larger client base = more work, but then HMRC would become more interested in this new revenue stream
Even if brothels were legalised, there would always be a concession to the prudes limiting the number so it is unlikely that the actual number of brothels would increase too much, just suspect those already there in most towns and cities would become 'legit'
