    Councils pay for prostitutes for the disabled

    One local authority is using its budget to pay for the services of a prostitute in Amsterdam, while others have said visits to lap dancing clubs are permissible under new policies which transfer funds directly to those who receive care from social services.

    Holidays abroad, subscriptions for internet dating and driving lessons have all been funded by the taxpayer under a national initiative introduced by the last Government.....

    Well i suppose this was part of new labours attempts at socialising our country. I can think of a fair few religious zealots that would be appalled by this use of their taxes.

    I'm in absolute agreement with Matthew Elliot, chief executive of The Taxpayers’ Alliance, when he said it was “deeply worrying” that public money had been spent on the services of prostitutes, lapdancing clubs and to pay for holidays.

    He said: “Many taxpayers will be appalled and offended that money intended for social care has been used in this way. What's more, it’s deeply worrying that this scheme has been so vulnerable to these abuses. It’s essential that where public funds are involved, there are the sort of checks and balances in place that prevent money being wasted in this way”.

    I'd hope there's an immediate investigation into this, and many more abuses of public funds, however well meaning the original intent of the initiative might have been.

    This is amazing. I've no moral issue over it, but it seems unfair use of public money to me. If charities funded it I wouldn't mind that. God knows what they would write on the collecting tins!

    In view of what some MPs spent their allowances on, this proposal could in some eyes be reasonable!?
    However I think it proposterous and inexcusable.

    As far as i am aware solicitation of prostitutes is illegal in this country, its worrying that tax payers are funding this. As richard littlejohn would say - you couldnt make it up.

    It's probably his human right to have sex i expect, but then you could extend that to anyone couldn't you. I wonder how many people who are currently listed as "unable to work" who will be popping down to see their social worker now in hopeful expectation

    I wouldn't begrudge some guy in a wheelchair a bit of state funded nookie.

    I think you'll find you're very much in the minority on this one. Of course he's got as much right to anyone to have a full sex life, but it's not up to the taxpayer to fund it any more than it's up to the taxpayer to fund my own. If you don't begrudge him it, you go and pay for it for him.

    Yes, while I agree with you in that everyone has the right to enjoy a full sex life, I don't see why it should be publically funded.

    Im with you on this. The guy had no chance of pulling without help. The only questions I would be asking was why Amsterdam ? Whats wrong with Bedford Hill or Kings Cross? Typical council,giving jobs to forigners again,
