MINISTERS want to block the phone numbers of prostitutes who advertise their services in newspapers and telephone booths in an attempt to stifle the illegal sex trade.
Police forces would identify suspected prostitutes to the telephone companies, which would be required to cut off their numbers.
Have we actually had the government taken over by raving lunatics?
A telephone company is a private business. A legal one I might add. And prostitution is also a legal business.
How in fuck can ministers assume to intervene in a private contract between two entirely legal businesses in this manner?
