Former Special Adviser to British Home Secretary David Blunkett
Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"We should pilot managed areas such as in the Netherlands, regularly patrolled by police, where sex workers are given an area where they can safely take their customers. These so-called red light zones have their problems. But their existence can help reduce crime, and enhance the women's safety.
Politicians are fond of telling people that theirs is a world of hard choices. It is time they made this one."
