    Default Swedish disease spreading

    After N Ireland taking the lead, the rest if the UK may follow and introduce the Swedish model:

    No, the article quotes there are no current plans to reconsider the legislation around prostitution.

    The rest of the UK, especially England, will not introduce any such legislation.

    Unlike Ireland, North and South, it is too broad-minded and secular to do so.

    cant get my head around the definition of sexual service anyway. the ads will have to be very generic methinks

    one of the clauses specifically exempts the girls from the threat of aiding and abetting but they would be witnesses to the prosecution of the 'criminal' client although admission immediately with a summary fine seems the likely way forward

    trying to defend it - might work but messy depends on how public you want it.

    '“Sexual”
    4. For the purposes of this Order, except Article 75 (sexual activity in a public lavatory), penetration, touching or any other activity is sexual if a reasonable person would consider that—
    (a)whatever its circumstances or any person's purpose in relation to it, it is because of its nature sexual, or
    (b)because of its nature it may be sexual and because of its circumstances or the purpose of any person in relation to it (or both), it is sexual.'

    I gathered that. But: if there is a Labour government next year things might change. Admittedly, it's very hard to predict how the elections will go.

    Lord Morrow; might he try a private member's bill, that he could introduce through his membership of the Lords? It seems unlikely, but then he could be open to the criticism that there is one law for N Ireland, and one for England, and if he feels so strongly, why hasn't he done anything. Or perhaps, the English legislators might take a less blinkered view of things, might actually evaluate the evidence, rather than relying on emotional moralising.
