Libs say no to backyard knocking shops

By johnboy 7 October 2012 23

The Liberals’ Vicki Dunne is coming out against “mini brothels” in suburban settings:

ACT Shadow Attorney-General Vicki Dunne announced today that if elected, a Canberra\ Liberals government would not implement the Labor-Greens plan to allow multiple prostitutes to work in homes in the suburbs. Mrs Dunne said this is bad policy which would have negative ramifications for suburban streets.

“Recently, ACT Labor and the Greens supported a Committee recommendation that would allow two prostitutes to works from residential premises, effectively creating mini brothels in residential streets,” Mrs Dunne sad.

“Since this recommendation was first mooted we’ve been inundated with questions from Canberrans who are justifiably concerned about having more prostitution in their suburbs.

Seeing as we already de facto have these operations any policy against them really should come with funding for a compliance regime.

I knows my friend with one on his street doesn’t much appreciate his wife having to explain to confused punters that she’s not a prostitute

Shouldn’t the brothel have a red light out the front? Maybe their bulb has blown.

Which prompts the question, does anyone know the story behind the ornate red light on the building up the end of Corinna St in Woden?
