  HMS Miserable...

The Royal Navy bans sailors from possessing anything but BBFC approved porn

Link Here 19th February 2017

pc shipThe Royal Navy has banned posters of glamour models so as not to offend women sailors after some complained of feeling intimidated by the soft porn.

Perhaps the banning of public space pin ups is understandable in these PC times but the Navy's rules go further and effectively ban sailors from all but a tiny portion of available porn.

Sailors were told about the ban when they were given an amended version of the Royal Navy's Queen Regulations. A new section titled Pin-ups and Pornography reads:

Possession of films/videos and all forms of digital media (e.g DvDs, or downloads from the internet) that have been certified by the British Board of Film Censors is permitted.  All other pornographic material is prohibited.

A Naval source told The Sun about these miserable rules:

To be fair, this is part of the service coming into the 21st Century, being more inclusive and not offending women.

But a lot of the lads are moaning about this because porn has been rife across the fleet for generations, and this is the result of a few people complaining.


 Update: There's not much call for Conservative clubs around here...

Southsea lap dancing club win appeal against a council ban to takeover old Conservative Club

elegance portsmouthPermission to turn a former Conservative club in Southsea into a lap-dancing venue has been granted after Portsmouth Council's original decision to ban the move was overturned.

Elegance, currently in Granada Road, will now be allowed to move to Albert Road and open between 9pm and 4am.

An appeal against the council decision was granted by planning inspector Jo Dowling who explained that the proposed venue would not be out of character :

I acknowledge that the presence of a lap dancing venue may deter some people from visiting this part of Albert Road.

However, as already highlighted due to its first floor location the proposed lap dancing venue would have a very limited physical presence on the street.

Being a late-night venue the proposed use would not operate at the same time as the majority of the daytime businesses.

More than 1,300 people had signed petitions against the move and the city council received 63 objections at the time of the original decision.
