    But Sofie, you do anyway. The premium on your car is so high because of drug addiction, the premium on your contents insurance is the same. Your council tax is higher because the police have to spend so much time arresting people for being in possession of these drugs, and have to spend so much time dealing with the petty theft that goes with it. Your income tax is higher because of the court costs of paying for the trials of these people, paying for their legal advice, paying for their prison sentences, paying for their probation. Your income tax is higher because you have to patch up the people who were beaten up and mugged.

    If we just gave them the bloody drugs it'd be infinitely cheaper for this country. As any fule kno.

    What about Holland? Have you ever been? Amsterdam has problems too! And anyway, the hard drugs these prostitutes were addicted to are also illegal in Holland. Prostitutes in Holland in an equivalent position to these women, i.e. addicted to hard drugs wouldn't be working in the legal brothels anyway.

    I have been to Amsterdam actually.


    I think he's right. Escorts, massage parlours, etc all operate pretty openly already. The solution is surely not to legitimise the filthy and unacceptable practice that prostitution is but rather to try and get people out of it.

    Firstly, surely the best way to get people out of it would be to know who exactly is working in this line of business anyway. If it were legal, we would have a better idea of at least some of the numbers in the industry before things can be done. Secondly, are you not an advocate of free trade? If theres a demand...

    I live at home, don't have a job and don't drive, so I don't pay for any of the stuff you've just mentioned.

    But what about the products you purchase everyday? Things at tesco, etc, all have VAT and that ultimately goes around to different sectors payed by the gov't. Money's constantly in circulation.

    Do you buy things? Then you pay tax.

    That explains the utter naivety of your viewpoint, I suppose.

    Anti-drugs legislation is a complete and utter waste of money- making it an imprisonable offence to be in possession of class A drugs does not stop one single person from taking them.

    It does, however, keep expensive judges, solicitors, barristers and prison staff in jobs.

    Well I assume you plan to partake in society at some point, at which time your money will be wasted on laws which dont work and will never work. In the mean time its just everyone elses money which is being pissed away.

    I was following on from Kermits comments, after someone suggested that heroin should be given to these women you said;
    Sofie wrote:
    I'd rather not have to fund some sex workers heroin habit.

    To which Kermit replied that you do pay through your tax, but apparently you dont actually spend or have any money, so I suggested that when you do your money (along with everyone elses) will be wasted because we dont give out heroin to users.

    May I politely suggest you get yourself a life then?

    So,, according to you, I don't have a life because I don't go out and buy things?:rolleyes:

    It's a bit rich for someone who never partakes in society to whinge about things, isn't it?

    If you never do anything then it is quite sad.

    And that anything is quite difficult to obtain. We're all bound to pay in some way.

    And Sofie, if you never buy things, how do you sustain yourself? if your family pays the dinner you eat, they pay to the Gov't. It's difficult never to give money to the state, you'd have to live on your own in undiscovered parts of the world. Even then would you probably pay something, those bastards. ;)

    What a vile bitch Littlejohn is, I'd rather read The Sun than his filthy shit :eek:.
    These five women were on the streets because even the filthiest, most disreputable back-alley "sauna" above a kebab shop wouldn't give them house room.

    Some already had worked is the parlours around town any way. Unlucky. Ignorent cunt.

    Some men are actually turned on by disgusting, drug-addled street whores.
    I have always wondered how desperate do you have to be to want to risk AIDS shagging some ugly filthy whore?
    Come to think of it, how bad does your life have to be to make you want to take drugs in the first place?

    Its time we did more in this country to tackle the root causes of drug abuse: unemployment, poverty, abuse, family breakdown.

    Newsflash: Not for several months now, hence the fact that his column is now in the Mail.

    Back to Littlejohn, I'll refer to Einstein:
    Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.

    He's a Grade-A cunt. He should be dropped in a vat of sulphuric acid and his remains sent into deep space so his filthy molecules don't pollute the Earth in any shape or form.

    The scary part of the Richard Littlejohn article is not his thoughts, after all he sells himself on being controversial.

    The worrying part is the readers who agree with his views. I know the sterotype of daily mail readers is old, grey haired and conservative.

    I think the best society can hope for is a cold winter to reduce numbers a bit.

    For the first few lines i agreed with him.. that is untill he started making out that their lives are worthless and that it's no great loss to society. They may not have found a cure for cancer, but who has?! I certainly haven't, do i deserve to be killed?

    I do agree that the tired old excuses of drugs turning women into prostitutes is getting a little bit same old, but no they didn't deserve to die so horrifically whether they were drug taking sex workers or pious nuns ffs, these are human beings man, have some respect!

    I also agreed with the first few sentances, hooking is a dangerous job.

    Somehow I don't believe all the people that are standing up for the hookers before this all happened would be embracing them if they were hooking on their street where they and their kids lived.

    To me these murders say to me why it's a good idea to legalise brothels, provide safe working areas and practises and taxs the horny little devils for the service.

    The desire for sex is one of our most basic instincts and where as we have formal structures to provide for other basic human needs and instincts like provision of food, water, shelter, etc there's no framework to provide for sex.

    Even this website has an entire section devoted to sex, so we know it's a big area of interest.

    Time for governments I think to take steps to get the hookers off the back streets and into much more safe and secure environments.

    I would say one thing: people die every day, from the top of society to the bottom of society, all of this - everyone getting so furious about it - is all because of the media spin. This is just another angle at spin, really. Why was there a minutes silence? Who knew these prostitutes personally, who mourns them? There is their families, but why the whole nation? It's just a story that's been told to make people emotive, so they buy more newspapers.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I didn't know there was a minutes silence.

    Yeah people die every day but murder by another person is somehow worse than an old person dying of old age.

    There was a minute's silence when Leeds played Ipswich on Saturday.

    oh football clubs are constantly doing minutes silences for everything, gets annoying to be honest.

    Errr...they didn't die. They were murdered. Targetted because they were women.
