Eu Tells Britain To Include Prostitutes And Drug Dealers

Recommended Posts

The EU rules require members to record the value of certain illegal activities in the nation's GDP, including the "production and consumption of drugs' as well as prostitution, in order to ensure consistent economic comparisons between member states and a fair distribution of the EU's £120 billion EU budget.

Is this yet another ruse by the French et al to get the British to stump up even more?

EDIT: Usage in Britain is way above most of Europe:

They probably do not use so many prostitutes either as, seemingly, it is considered de rigueur for your average French lady to be the mistress to at least one married man.

Edit:

Look, I got a French phrase into a sentence about France. Anyone want to start a Roman thread so I can mention something about Bigus D*ckus?

I did a £15k secured loan for a prostitue when I worked for a subprime lender in early 2000's.

To prove her wages, I asked her 'madame' to hand-write her earnings over the last 3 months, which was accepted by my manager. I also sold her a PPI policy which would never have paid out in the event of her being unable to 'work', as she was self employed !

Crikey, what a rotten job that was.

Illegal activities? Prostitution is not illegal in the UK.

Prostitution is legal but soliciting for it is illegal, I don`t see how you can have one without the other.

Walk around in high heels, mini skirt and fur coat whilst smoking and wait for someone to approach you.

Cue massive increase in GDP, and numbers studying 'chemistry' and 'leisure studies and massage' at college You couldn't make it up.

Have a look at SW5

"Advertising

It is not illegal to advertise sexual services, although if the ads are extremely graphic and are likely to 'deprave or corrupt' persons likely to see them, they may fall foul of the Obscene Publications Act 1959.

Standards have changed: as recently as the early 1990s, no publisher would have dared print some of the escort ads in gay magazines now.

But even today some directories, such as Yellow Pages and Thomson, are reluctant to display ads from massage parlours and agencies, particularly outside Central London.

Accepting prostitutes' ads

Anyone involved with a magazine, newspaper, shop, radio or TV station which earns advertising revenue from prostitution is now no longer liable to be prosecuted for living on the earnings of prostitution - they have no element of control over the work and thus fall outside the scope of controlling for gain."

The profits of landlording are included in GDP, so I don't really see the difference.

GDP will go to infinity................and beyond!

The old argument about infinite growth from finite assets is now defunct! After all a working girl"s 'punani' can be rented out an infinite number of times. It's the perpetual engine dreamt of by engineers since the beginning of time........... we'll all be rich!

What's not to like I ask you.......
