Its' been posted in the Soho Walkup Thread elsewhere on the board but worth posting here for anyonr who doesn't follow that.

The Standard spoke to the English Collective of Prostitutes but that got dropped from the printed story.

It's not clear what walkups were raided but Wardour Street has bren mentioned.

It's hooded prohibition, no doubt about it.

 

Trumped up charges pulled out of the air to achieve the closures, why it's almost as if they've had a training course from Police Scotland.

Quite.  After years of pragmatism when everyone knew what Edinburgh's massage parlours were for, the newly formed Police Scotland have raided six of them out of the blue.  What do they hope to achieve?  Needless to say Edinburgh's small red light district will now expand, to the inconvenience of locals and to the danger of punters and punted alike. I just can't see what on earth they expect to achieve. 

 

Well I for one have just arrived for a 3-day visit to London and will sticking two fingers up to the filth by punting like mad in the walkups :-)
