News October 2014: Topless only

Feminist extremists continue to hold sway in Halifax.

An application to allow dancers to perform nude during lap dances has been turned-down by council moralists.

La Salsa on Silver Street, Halifax, requested Calderdale Council's Licensing Committee lift a condition on the club's licence requiring its dancers to wear a non-transparent g-string or similar piece of clothing on the appropriate part of the body at all times.

Reza Shasavar, owner of La Salsa, told the board: Lap dancing is about having fun.

He told the board that he is applying for the amendment to the rules to avoid complaints and confrontations from men who feel the dance didn't go far enough.

Shasavar said: A few months ago I was asked by my bank manager to organise his brother's stag party. The stag had a lap dance and said 'I've seen more in the swimming pool'. The group left and went to a lap dancing bar in Leeds.

He said the business case was clear, and his club is unable to compete with lap dancing clubs in Leeds and Manchester which allow nude performers.

News December 2013: Miserable women's group Opposed licence renewal

Feminist campaigners of WomenCentre have written to Calderdale Council objecting to an application by La Salsa in Halifax to renew its sex establishment licence , commenting:

We promote positive lifestyles and the location of such an establishment directly opposite our centre could act as a deterrent to some women who may wish to access our services.

I find the idea of such an establishment in the town centre inappropriate and abhorrent.

The application to renew the licence for La Salsa will be considered at the Licensing and Regulatory Committee on Monday December 16 at Halifax Town Hall.

News August 2015: Speaking their moralistic minds

Kirklees Council covering the area around Huddersfield has become the last authority in West Yorkshire to adopt sex entertainment licensing.

And it seems that Kirklees has been quick to impose repressive controls. New rules forbid fully nude dancing and also ban clubs from advertising in their windows using photographs or other images which suggest that striptease takes place.

Cleopatras Lounge on Northumberland Street in Huddersfield will bear the brunt of the new moralist policy from 1st October 2015.
