France gets it right as well!

According to the Guardian in the UK

MPs have recommended criminalising clients of sex workers, saying 80% of prostitutes are victims of slavery and trafficking. France is to consider making it illegal to pay for sex, in a rethink of prostitution laws. A cross-party commission of French MPs have recommended criminalising all clients of sex workers, meaning anyone who buys sex from any kind of prostitute would face prison and a fine. If a law is introduced, France would join only a handful of European countries where clients of sex workers face prison. In 1999 Sweden became the first, followed by Norway and Iceland.

    Why does your link point to the Guardian website rather than the Telegraph one?

    Hello Bob,

    A purely ‘technical’ question: why do you spell sex as “s*x”?

    Dominic.
