I've read  whole range of articles on the subject and nowhere have I found a precise estimation  as to when (if) those sites (it's not AW exclusively) are to be shut down.

Could you please kindly share a link ?

That date is actually when the committee meets to make a decision.  I thinks she's jumped the gun a little.  It was just a news article, it didn't state aw we're closing down on that date, just that's when the committee hope to make a decision regarding Fosta.

We are in the uk we don't have Fosta /Sesta laws
April 2019 or around that time is when the survey by Bristol Uni goes back to the government for further consideration

It's not just the survey, it's a full research project. Bristol Uni researchers all support the Nordic Model

I would like to know why a group with such open, anti-prostitution bias was entrusted with one such project.  IMO, it makes the project look like nothing more than a token gesture of democracy.

because they scored the highest in the bid. There are several groups who are working to ensure that they adhere to the bid terms and to proper research methods

I've read we might be getting some laws later this year like America. Ones that could mean websites like adult work and advertising will be illegal.

Right now british internet laws fall under the umbrella of European legislation so the answer is NO, however after Brexit and once the UK is out of EU Britain can make their own laws and do whatever they want and ban as many sites as they please. Will they do it?

I have no idea.

I doubt banning prozzie sites will be the top of their list after Brexit.

Not so sure ladyofthemansion, take the backpage lesson from the US: Once there was a bunch of ambitious American politicians and senators wanting to advance their career and made a target out of banning prostitution sites in order to er..." stop trafficking and protect women and children".. So FOSTA was passed by congress and Backpage seized. No politician or senator went against this because defending prostitutes would have been career suicide. We already have our  personal John Mc cain here in Britain, her name is Sarah champion, labour MP for Rohertham seems to have chosen banning AW and vivastreet as her favourite cause because she's probably fighting for a seat in parliament.

Ambitious politicians with an agenda that can get their asses in more desirable political position will always be around, brexit or not.

Prostitution and punting are illegal in the US. It's a very different situation when the argument is that keeping the sites is condoning, encouraging and promoting criminal activity and anybody defending them would visibly be doing likewise.

Fair point, but there was a debate regarding banning prostitution websites in the house of commons two months ago, a cross-party group of MPs publicly said the owners of such sites "directly and knowingly" profit from sex-trafficking and wanted the Home Office to intervene. This is how it all started in the US. These british MP's concluded that prostitution procurement websites were "the most significant enabler of sex-trafficking in the UK".

Just like in the US British gov are shouting"criminal activity!" too.

As Amy mentioned it's would be career suicide for american senators to not agree with the Sesta / Fosta laws as prostitution was and always has been illegal in the states so they can't condone something that is already against the law
Prostitution is not illegal in the uk

If it happens and I think it would be unlikely more likely to go down the Nordic Model first before anything else  websites will probably just set up outside of the uk

Guys in the uk will use a VPN to access them

It's what happens in the Middle East and other places where advertising of sites are banned and sex is and prostitution is illegal
