Join us (and the paparazzi!) at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards and ask its editor, George Osborn, to scrap the Sex Ads from the ES.
After all, if the ES is making money from advertising sex chat & prostitution where exactly has the money come from to pay for 'Best Actress' Award!

The TUC has voted resoundingly against a motion to decriminalise pimps and punters.
The motion was brought by train driver's union Aslef (95% male members), backed by the GMB, who had already been lobbied hard by the sex industry. Clearly getting the TUC to support the legitimising of the sex trade is a key goal of the industry.
This is despite the fact that the TUC's own Women's Conference support the diametrically opposite stance and call for the criminalising of pimps and punters as the only way to end the sex trade and all the abuse associated with it.
Congrats and thanks to all (including Nordic Model Now! who were busy talking and flyering ASLEF and TUC delegates).
