b) This has been swiftly followed by the planned or actual opening of a number of other town centre dives dispensing alcohol for consumption on the premises.

c) There now appears to be a consensus on this website (with a few notable and honourable exceptions) that the driving force behind the rejuvenation of the local economy should be the creation of more of these establishments. We have had one clown on here only a few weeks ago complaining that the local newspaper was not prepared to give free publicity to his latest enterprise. Personally, if I was the editor of the AO, then I would have done, at the same time as reporting the additional cost to the taxpayer of the police and the NHS for the social costs of such an establishment (UK average, £8pds pp/customer per night). The taxpayer pays the costs; the pub/bar owners take the profit.

d) No surprise, then, that we now have a planned lap dancing club. The funny thing is that where these things started off in the UK - in London - they're now dying out. Rather passé, I'm afraid - a little bit like tattoo parlours, tanning salons, curry joints and similar rubbish associated with the dross of a squalid urban environment. So I would respectfully suggest that if HBC has any sense, permission for this 'sex encounter' club should be immediately thrown out.

Re: Lap Dance Club

As Teabag said, it's not exactly new, and cutting edge.

Let's not forget who imported the idea of lap dancing clubs over from the States.

Peter Stringthong.

Re: Lap Dance Club

With respect Tealeaf.....I think there is a big difference between Wetherspoons and a lap dancing club.
I could quite happily see myself going into Wetherspoons for a drink...but I would not be frequenting a lap dancing club.

While we know that you don't like Wetherspoons(for you have not missed an opportunity to remind us, as if we could forget) it seems to be doing well and has obviously found a niche in the market for such a service.

Which other town centre 'dives' are you referring to?

I fully agree with these comments but doubt that the application will be thrown out.

So where are these drinking dives that have opened up in Accy since the arrival of Wetherspoons? I like drinking dives.

Superficially there may be; but the underlying theme is the same - it is the debasement of once accepted standards (be they ethical, moral, or even simple culinary). I am simply not going to sign up to that.

It's now 10.18pm.

Please take your medication and go straight to bed.

Goodnight and sweet dreams.
