Can't be too many EPL managers who don't have a name

No but I do know of a current SPL manager who used to frequent a certain London Street establishment! :wink:

Think we've got to be careful about naming names....

I have a rough idea though :agree:

It's not illegal, so why the big deal?

Or is it the super-sanctimonious Sun making moral judgements again?

Yeah, good move, the Sun won't name him for fear of legal action but let's plaster his name all over here so that the admin team can get 20 years hard labour in Siberia.

Interesting point. Is it defamatory to print a story about someone doing something that's not against the law, but is against some people's morals?

Front page news eh?

I hate the moral high ground papers like that take, then they have a picture of a 19 year old wi her tits oot on the next page (I'm not against page 3 but given that they have it seems a bit rich to make a big deal of something that has gone on for years)

Dunno, but the Sun is keeping the name quiet for a reason. Until it's common knowledge we're probably best to do the same :wink:

On Human Rights grounds, it seems.

I don't often quote the Daily Ma*l, but here is their take on it.

I thought that prostitution was illegal but tolerated in 'saunas'.

Not so, Woody. The purchase and sale of sex is not illegal in the UK, although there are some who would make it so.

There are, however, some illegal acts surrounding the industry, eg:-

1. sex with minors, obviously.

2. soliciting (which, in Scotland, is a civil offence, not a criminal one)

3. kerb-crawling (no convictions thus far in Scotland).

4. brothel keeping, which is notoriously difficult to prove.

I am not sure if it is law yet, but the plan in England is to make it illegal to buy sex from trafficked men and women. Very laudable, but again I think probably very difficult to prove.

The toleration of saunas that you mention is widespread. Edinburgh's model, which has been operated for over 20 years, has been copied throughout the UK. It licences saunas as places of entertainment, with all the legal requirements thereof.

They're all over the place (Brown, Allardyce, Redknapp most mentioned). Their inherent bias makes them wish it was McCarthy, or that Roy Keane was still a PL manager.

You learn something new everyday eh!

Interestingly, I had read about the prossies in the EEN when the festival was on.

They were renting flats in the town centre and it wasn't illegal for them to sell sex in their own 'home' as the transaction is between the 2 individuals.

It should be legal but there should be measures to restrict people trafficking as that is the unacceptable bit.

Anyway, I think Phil Brown has to be one of the front runners, seems a bit of a lad :greengrin

It's not beyond the realms of possibility that they will run a similar story on Sunday but it will be pretty old by then and The Sun and NoTW are generally reluctant to run stories that the other has broken. There isn't actually much co-operation between the two titles, despite them being from the same stable.

I know this because, er, I used to work there.

Glad to be of service :wink:

The law gets a bit weird in the renting flats bit. It's legal for one person to operate as a sex worker out of their own home. However, if it's two or more in the same place... that counts as a brothel. :rolleyes:
