    Exclamation BREAKING: DUP claims Clause 15 has Royal Assent, now Law

    BBC Ulster is running a story tomorrow that the purchase of sex is now a criminal offence in Northern Ireland.

    The story seems to be based on a press release from the DUP. Minor technical details like a commencement period or a Statutory Instrument to enable the legislation seem to have passed them by. What a surprise.

    More details to follow on Good Morning Ulster tomorrow, apparently. Situation is still a bit unclear right now.

    Follow @GlasgaeLauraLee or @BBCgmu on twitter for details.

    It's DUP spin. Clause 15 will not be enforced until 1st June.
    2014 in Northern Ireland:

    Number of reported attacks on sex workers 70

    Number of sex trafficking cases ZERO

    The DUP, a fine upstanding body of Chrristian bullies and bigots.

    I thought there was always a charge connected to sex, whether married, together or otherwise... As it is I find escorts charges, general much less than those other examples I just gave.

    I wish this were true. The fact is that this is part a global, largely feminist movement against sex work, with the DUP just being the useful idiots in this case.
