    I get your point Rhua. Of course, sex offenders will be in such positions once outside prison. If we make decisions which increase this access, or are likely to increase it, then there will be consequences. We need to weigh these things up very carefully. For every action, there is .......

    I think it's about working things out clearly and avoiding unintended consequences, rather than being "hung up." If, as a country, we increase the number of locations sex offenders can access seemingly legitimately, such as khazis, changing rooms etc, what are the likely consequences in terms of people assaulted and offences committed? There are issues to consider other than people's rights.

    I agree, there are legitimate concerns about the opportunities for ne'er do wells to exploit the opportunities provided by soi disant gender neutral spaces and commit crimes against women. On a different tack, some people will know of New Hall Prison in Yorkshire, and the case of the supposed transgender, sex offender prisoner who allegedly assaulted women prisoners pretty soon after being admitted. Entirely predictable behaviour to those who have had professional, or personal experience of sex offenders. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/sep/09/sexual-assaults-in-womens-prison-reignite-debate-over-transgender-inmates-karen-white

    JOC, have you read about the approach to knife crime that was used in Glasgow and other parts of Scotland? IIRC, this goes back a good few years.

    "No thank you." works for me. When I was a young smart a*se I used to tell any JW's who came to the door that I worked for the Blood Transfusion Service and I would ask them to sign up as donors. I never got any takers for some reason.

    Don't be downhearted Phil, there's only seventeen months of the flood related roadworks to go. Yesterday's burst water main and road closure just added to the gaiety of the valley. 😣
