depends if the tories repeal stuff.

I cant see any party passing pro punting laws, such as legalising brothels.

the best thing for punting would be proper management of the economy so punters have the brass to spend to keep the girls busy!

A more pertinent question would be is there any realistic alternative ? All the current alternative are pretty authoritarian, Pro-big brother, pro-surveillance state. There are no true libertarians.

One of the reasons modern politics is such nonsense, apart from the lies and hypocrisy, is that there is no REAL difference between the main parties whatsoever.

They are both: pro EU, in favour of a mixed economy (Labour accepts that many industries won't be nationliased/re-nationilsed; Tories accept that some will be state run), pro immigration, soft on crime, hard on law abiding people in the sense of high taxes, tough on motorists (law abiding ones!), pro Afgahan War - oh of course and hypocritical and dishonest!

Whichever gets in it's the same main policies by different names.

As far as punting is concerned both will talk tough about destroying it (how come that's now seems to be off the agenda?), but the Tories perhaps slightly less so.

Not Libertarian, just less authoritarian.

As for the OP's question. I think a change from Labour would probably mean less of a focus on prostitution as an issue. Jacqboot Smith and her ilk are rather puritanical in their views on anything fun, be it punting, drinking, smoking or a fry-up. I expect the Tories to be less bothered about that kind of thing.

I believe that punting is far safer in the hands of the Tories or lib dems, than in Labours hands, as labour has post feminist activists near their top who believe they have the right to shove their extreme views down our gullets without a full public debate.

Extremists were ever so.

fascism come in many forms.

I am a socialist but they have lost my vote for the next parliament.

But on the basis of their IT successes so far there is nil chance of them succeeding, but they would probably employ another 20.000 civil servants in the attempt.

Don't the Lib Dems have a good track record of tolerance on the issue? But personally I didn't feel as strongly as most people posting an answer to the question half posed. 'Yes' seems a good enough answer.

I would say yes but only with a party that supports sexual freedoms including prostitution so out of the major parties only the Lib Dems seems to be on that. Not sure about the Tories simply cause they are more religious then Labour, not to mention that the Tories pretty much supports (and sucks up to) to religious groups like Labour so that is the only two things they have in common, that and the fact that there are also feminist fundamentalists in both of them too.
