Thanks Braziliana. What a contribution!

Maybe we should all come together and create a template to send off to our MP's? This would help ladies who otherwise would not write a letter to simply copy paste and send it off.

If SC gets her ultimate wish, prostitution would become illegal (as I understand it), so brothels and parlours would become legitimate targets, whereas nowadays the police often turn a blind eye if they're low key and don't annoy the neighbours. We'd have to follow the US pattern and use ridiculous euphemisms.

Would certainly suggested creating your own website, even if it needs to be heavily edited if any nightmare scenario comes to pass.

Comments on the last time this bunch were in the news:

'The Ian formerly known as SW5'. What they said: "Indispensable", "You are our best resource", and (hours later!) "I'm afraid that you're being made redundant..."

Thank you, Ana.  Whether it will actually make any difference, though, is another matter.

As for a templated response, young Ms Redhead provided the following link to one from Scotpep (which I used):  https://scotpep.eaction.org.uk/lobby/safetynotcriminalisation  It is possibly too late to write in with the aim of influencing the outcome of today's debate, though.

Was a great protest, a good turn out and was wonderful seeing such solidarity between all sex workers who turned up. We were not able to protest on the greenery but I overheard and attendant clearing the ground saying he had never met such well mannered and nice protesters! I’ve never been prouder to be a part of this community.

If worst came to worst and AW and other sites were closed down then when would this actually happen??

For example, two years ago Parliament decided to make it unlawful for letting agents in England to charge fees to tenants but it’s still not been actioned.
I'm glad I got all the Cynthia Payne books before the prices rocked to sky high.

If adult work gets shut down I wouldn’t be able to cam any more it’s the main cam site I’m on so many ladies will be out of work this is a worry xxx

I’m guessing if it is made official it won’t be put in place for a couple of years . I don’t think the government are that stupid think how much money in taxes they would loose that’s what they mainly care bout any way xx

I’m guessing that means viva street will go too xx

If it does go through lets hope it is a few years by which time I have retired and other Ladies can come up with an alternative strategy.

over 3000 people emailed their MPs! about 200 people came to the protest! thank you! this is just the beginning. There's a thread on the strike4decrim movement, there's a push to have workers unionise too. Please keep lobbying your MPs! Labour members, please go to your local meetings and take decrim motions to them.

This probably sounds a bit silly but I'm a bit confused with all of the politics! Hoping someone could help me understand?

If this debate has the outcome that it's agreed websites should be outlawed; does that mean the sites will be shut down tonight? Or are there more processes to get it through parliament? Just trying to work out if I need to make some emergency plans this afternoon to keep my safe clients if my profile is going to disappear suddenly and I can't vet clients properly. 

Sorry if this is a silly question, I've been trying to work out what's happening and I've read all of the articles I can find and I've found the link to watch the debate live but I'm still a bit muddled!

no, it was just a debate. no vote.

'' A Bill is a proposed law which is introduced into Parliament. Once a Bill has been debated and then approved by each House of Parliament, and has received Royal Assent, it becomes law and is known as an Act. ''



''The passage of a piece of legislation from start to finish can be as short as a few days to as long as several years. Overall, the "average" time is about a year.''

there was no bill though, it was just a policy debate x
