Absolutely 100% legalised.

These entrepreneurs need protection.

Vinny can't get any politicians anymore, so he's talking to a prostitute instead.

One could argue that there plenty of hoors in Dáil Éireann!

A cop was murdered last Friday. I don't see why VB is prioritising comparatively trivial issues, i.e. prostitution.

You mean it's illegal?
You're right. In and of itself prostitution is not illegal in Ireland. In essence, it is all of the activity around prostitution - brothels, advertisement, pimping and so on - that are illegal. It's an odd area of law.

Tonight, it's prostitution. Last night and Monday night, it was James Reilly. Why is VB dumbing down discussion of current events?

Interesting that the woman from Ruhama said prostitution is part of organised crime but selling sex should be decriminalised (in order to protect vunerable women forced into prostitution). Isn't that the same as saying small time drug-dealing should be decriminalised - many forced into it to pay their own debts.
