To be honest I wasn't aware that there was an abundance of either of these in Bolton. The sex shop on St George's Rd has been there since I was a lad, and I'm 48 now so that must do enough business to keep it going. If these places are regulated and meet agreed trading standards then what is the big problem?

Why not one step further and ban all bars and night clubs!!!

Shisha bars do serve a purpose and do not harm anyone - in fact they are just as safe as bars that allow smoking in outside areas!!! Plus there are some bars that allow smoking inside!!!

As a non-smoker, I see nothing wrong with people wanting to smoke inside, we went too far and should have allowed smoking rooms in bars - they work in parts of Germany that allow it and also work in The Netherlands!

The problem is too much regulation,too many council bureaucrats and extortionate business rates,that's why the town centre is a ghost town.
