Pole-dancing in Parliament Square

Not content with chasing the dragon, another might-be-open-to-misinterpretation event for MPs is taking place tomorrow.

Object - which previously led a campaign against magazines such as Nuts and Zoo being on display within reach of children in newsagents - is supporting my Labour colleague Roberta Blackman Woods' 10 Minute Rule Bill calling for better licensing of lap-dancing clubs. Apparently due to a legal loophole such venues fall under a ‘one size fits all’ licensing category also used for cafes, restaurants and karaoke bars.

To publicise the cause Object is setting up what they describe as "a café/strip club installation "in Parliament Square, and have invited MPs along. Not sure whether this is an invitation to spectate or participate!

Excellent Kerry. My wife is in London today and is going along to the Fawcett Society campaign in Parliament Square at lunchtime.
