I have no intention to visit a lapdancing club if it opens, but I don't endorse Ken's use of taxpayer money to challenge the licensing decision.
I'd be more than happy for him to spend the 4,000 getting the Dungeon out of London Bridge, however. What a ridiculous excuse for a tourist attraction!
It's all well and good for Ken to say residents don't want a lapdancing club - but they didn't want a congestion charge either.
I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the next mayoral election.

You're suggestion is that the council start taking the law into their own hands, which many citizens would object to on all sorts of grounds.Of course Southwark can do something; they can at least impose such strong conditions as to make the club a profitless endevour. .
