Peter Stringfellow, Simon Warr of Spearmint and Glenn Nicie of FYEO appearing before committee

Peter Stringfellow, Simon Warr of Spearmint and Glenn Nicie of FYEO were amongst those appearing before the Commons Culture, Media and Sport select committee at the end of November

I understand from coverdancer Solitaire who was also there that MPs were rightly quite sceptical about Object’s motives. Jacqui “deadbeat” Smith still seems set on forcing ever more regulation despite the total lack of evidence that there is any problem and with rather less than 30% of local authorities actually wanting more powers. I understand from those involved that the “consultation exercise” was a typical new Labour sham with a pre ordained conclusion.

The “spin” put out with the new bill is that it will give local authorities more power to turn down clubs though unless they are allowed to turn them down on moral grounds {which would be a very slippery slope in my view} I can’t see what difference it’s going to make. Despite “deadbeat’s” anti sex drive it’s reported that Job Centres are still carrying adverts for massage parlours and the like , it’s what her old boss Bliar used to call “ joined up government “ !


A new strip pub is the “Plough” in Hangar Lane, Saturday afternoon only at first. The venerable “Flying Scotsman” {right} near Kings Cross station is closing early in the new year for a refurb plus an expansion into a next door premises. I wonder whether the famously disgusting toilets {apparently the inspiration for the one in Trainspotting!} will change.


The local council has turned down the application for “Pussy cats” in Sutton Coldfield mentioned in last month’s column, an appeal is likely. The newly refurbished “Heaven and Hell” night club in Burslem, Stoke has applied to include lap dancing on the upper floor and has apparently been swamped by applications from potential dancers . The first club in Hartlepool mentioned in last months column is to be called “Little Black Book”. “Cellar Bar 8” in Cambridge which has a lap dancing section has been refused a late license mainly due to problems in the conventional club it’s connected to, “Lace” in Newcastle under Lyme though has got a late license despite some local opposition.

A first club called “Heaven” is opening in Pontefract and while Scarborough may have lost “Privilege” as reported last month it still has the relatively new “Players” club in Huntriss Row. “Tiffany’s” in Exeter closed before Christmas but expects to re-open in late January or early February at a new location in the town centre.


Lush the first club in Exmouth now has a web site . Paul Ojla the owner of the long established Elegance in Portsmouth has just acquired the Wiggle club in Bournemouth.

The old Raymond’s Revuebar in Soho is back up on the market and rumour has it that it might be converted back into a strip venue. Apparently the high rent which killed off the old Revuebar was also too much for the gay bar that replaced it despite it hosting amongst other events the wedding reception of Elton John and David Furnish.
Burlesque superstar Dita Von Tease is returning for another stint at the Crazy Horse in Paris in February.
