Is wearing a miniskirt anti-social behaviour?
If Mayor Bobbio from Castellammare di Stabia gets his way, miniskirts, low-cut jeans, sunbathing, playing football in public places, and blasphemy will all be outlawed in his southern Italian seaside town.
It's all up for approval today at a council meeting. And it's a result of extra powers given to local governments by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to fight crime and anti-social behaviour.
Jonathan Turley sees it as a trend against free speech in the West. His article is called Viva El Talibano.
The debate has kicked off on our Facebook page, some of you on our Facebook page think it's a good idea.
Italy, you have my blessing, go ahead and get rid of this unethical mode of dressing and other countries should also emulate this move !
And Tyrone posts:
I think miniskirts and speedos should be banned from a decency point of view. If we're going to restrict people from over-dressing, why be open to under-dressing?
But David does not agree:
Is this really the biggest problem facing Italy? Since when did Europe start being conservative?
Do you think measures like this are helpful? What would you ban if you were mayor? Or is this taking the law too far?
