According to the BBC, a 37-year old man from Felixstowe has been arrested in connection with the murders of five prostitutes in Ipswich over the past few weeks. Amongst calls for licensed brothels to be opened for the protection of the women involved, Constitutional Affairs Minister Harriet Harman has rather predictably called for the law against the women's customers to be tightened. According to Sunday's Observer newspaper, Downing Street ensured that a plan to get prostitutes off the streets and into a safer environment was dropped, fearing that the Bliar Government would get negative publicity. How many more women need to die before this country realises that this isn't something that can be brushed under the carpet? Things cannot go on the way they are.
