Cameron Stumbles Over Kerb Crawlers

leave a comment »

Oh dear!  Here comes the first knee-kerk reaction.  Next thing we’ll be hanging and flogging them.   The law against kerb crawling is of very dubious value or common sense anyway.  It’s the oldest profession.  Men want to pay women for sex and women want to sell sex.  It’s been going on since time began and silly, pointless little laws aren’t going to change it.

Can I Put You Down As A Researcher?

Fair enough, stop drivers kerb crawling in residential streets and harrassing your daughters but if you don’t pair such laws with legalised brothels or designated red light districts you are just making the problem worse.

I understand David Cameron’s desire to want to do something to declare his horror at the Bradford murders but I thought we were supposed to be past this sort of politicking now?  I thought legislation was now going to based on a rational, properly researched approach to problems.

What we need to do is make it safer for women who want to work as prostitutes and call a halt to the pressures that force women into prostitution.   That means some sort of regulated sex industry and the legalisation and regulation of drugs.

It’s not rocket science.  It’s common sense.  It means you may have to face down the self-righteous, moral crusaders so it takes a modicum of courage but I thought that’s where we are now.   This is the first crack in the veneer.  Let’s hope it’s quickly mended.
