Sex Site Thanks Harriet Harman
PunterNet is a website run from America that has real reviews of prostitutes from the UK. Many men use it to find escorts in Covent Garden and other major London locations, though the site covers the whole of the UK also.
During a Labour Party conference held in Brighton, Harriet Harman (a UK politician known for her extreme feminism) confronted Arnold Schwartzenegger, the governor of California. She challenged him to shut down the website. “Surely it can’t be too difficult for the Terminator to terminate PunterNet,” she dared. “If he doesn’t I’ve got a message for Arnie – I’ll be back!” However, the site is not breaking any laws and Mr Schwartzenegger cannot shut it down because he must abide by the commitment to freedom of speech in the US Constitution.
Going under the name ‘Galahad’, PunterNet’s site administrater wrote a letter to Harman, thanking her for the free publicity. “I would like to thank you for the huge influx of traffic to my website which your actions have caused” he wrote. Many of the escorts and prostitutes have also openly thanked her for the raised awareness of the website since her outburst.
‘Galahad’ also pointed out that even the President of the United States would not have the authority to take away freedom of speech.
Many men who had previously never heard of the website have since logged on, and as more and more news stories cover the subject, the hits just keep increasing.
Ms Harman is a minister for women and equality and regularly speaks out about issues such as this. She aims to stop women sex workers who are controlled by pimps, but her black and white views do not reflect the industry as a whole. In fact, the girls who choose to work as escorts are exercising their own rights by working how they choose to, not how she tells them they should!
