    Good idea if it's just for under 15 yr olds, No wait, they should stretch it to cover 17 yr olds

    It depends what they mean by 'kissing.'

    If they mean people groping each other and eating each other's faces in the middle of the pavement or in shops/restaurants/pubs etc, then I agree - some people apparently don't know when to stop, and it's not nice to see.

    But if they just mean kissing on the lips, and in quiet places which aren't too obvious... then they've got another thing coming. How do they expect anyone to accept that?

    if they ban it, it wont make any differnce, they'll still kiss anyways...its just silly!

    Nice, sensible idea in theory, but in practice it just means they'll be kissing more in private, and doing heavier stuff without their parents or mature adults overlooking.

    Yes...I agree with that. But I'm pretty sure it was under 15's only. In which case I agree with HunnyPot - it's good in theory but it won't stop them doing it, and worse in private.

    We talked about it in IRC when it was on Newsround...it also said it would be illegal, but there would be no punishment for doing it. Which is like.... pointless :|

    Sorry sonny, we have a warrant for your arrest. It seems you're being charged with a case of serial kissing.

    I don't see how this can be enforced, not least with tens of thousands of people 15 or under kissing. I think that it will be, in reality, an unenforcable and thus probably unsuccessful law. However, I presume that they assume that merely being law is a deterrent ('oh no, I musn't do it because I might be caught'), but I doubt very much that it will be.

    What will happen if people are caught? Will they have their names in the all-important'black book of under-age kissing' which will remain until they are dead, just like the sex offenders list? Will they be summond to the magistrates' court and face the possibility of a £1,500 fine and a 6 month prison sentence or both? Get real - it's kissing.

    I presume that parliament is doing this to perhaps try to reduce the underage pregnancy rate.

    How do they define 'kissing'? Kissing on lips? A snog?

    The law states that lads of a certain age [12 or older i *think*] are supposed to attend archery lessons every other sunday.
    :lol:

    And, on the original topic, its unenforcable, therefore doesnt matter. Its not the first or last time the government has fucked up.

    I can just imagine you being the defendant in a murder trial.

    You are being cross-examined by the leading counsel for the prosecution:

    Q: Why did you do it?

    A: Because it was illegal and so more fun.

    :lol::p

    Yeah... but that's morally wrong, as opposed to kissing which is just illegal :p

    lol if you say so,i personally think that its a bit stupid to ban it,if there worried about children having to strong urges and feelings towards the opposite sex there going about it the wrong way to control it,its just going to make people do it more,next they'll proberly start newtering the kids as a precaution?
    this countrys getting ridiculous good job i aint in it forever eh?

    i'll agreed with most of you is a stupid rule and i guess the person that made that need to be shot on the street or probably he was abuse by some priest with religion thoughts either way it sucks, :)

    i think the real reason that they want to introduce this is because they want to stop peadophiles kissing under15s. but by doing that they have to say 'kissing under the age of 15 is wrong'. they dont actually want to stop 2 under 15yr olds kissing together which is why there is no punishment for them.

    Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    It's going to be really interesting, because they're going to have to define "peadophile" very carefully. By the sounds of things, the easiest way to do they would be to class it as anyone over 16...
    so a 17 with a 15 year old partner kissing would be illegal.

    This could be an interesting law :rolleyes:

    Some people find porn and indecent exposure offensive. Fair enough, you have to draw the line somewhere, but that does not include kissing!

    As what Rainbow Brite said about smiling and laughing, everyone in the UK would be enslaved to some kind of 'robotic' society.

    Blair needs to get out more.
