OKAY, I am old and a woman, but I am very sad that York councillors voted to open another lap-dancing club.

I am not a feminist, I do not think that it demeans women: if men are daft enough to pay, I think that gives women the upper hand.

York is not the place for such venues. Leeds is just down the road and if that’s what floats your boat, fair enough. But please leave York with its beautiful class.
