I came across this video yesterday. Even if I don't agree with everything she says Niki Adams is an very good public speaker. But it is what Shiela Farmer had to say that made me think what is the point of prosecuting her? From what I gather it is not uncommon for prostitutes to group together as a sort of collective in order to provide themselves with a safer working environment.
Perhaps it was Sheila's name on the flat lease and the police and CPS decided to show how macho they were in cracking down on on prostitution. I am not advocating he so called "oldest profession" but I can't see how prosecuting Sheila Farmer is going to achieve anything especially when so many violent crimes against "working women" go unprosecuted
