Which other Politicians have been to strip bars?

Probably plenty…I know of a politician that has gone to strip bars…with me, one for my stag night and one for my brother’s stag night. I am sure there are others. Nigel Farage has at least admitted it.

How many others have that courage?

United Kingdom Independence Party leader Nigel Farage has admitted going to a lap dancing club after he was elected as an MEP.

The United Kingdom Independence Party leader was asked why the party was backing Karim Ayoubi, a candidate in the local elections in Abington and Phippsville who also was “the general manager of an outfit called Urban Tiger which bills itself as the best lap dancing club in the Midlands”.

Speaking at a lunch organised by the Parliamentary Press Gallery, Mr Farage initially joked “sounds all right to me, I have no problem with that”. 

Asked then if he had been to lapdancing clubs, he said: “To my knowledge I have been to one in my time in Strasbourg which I was taken to unwittingly by someone who was a candidate for the French Presidency.

“I had no idea where we were going and we walked through the door and I thought ‘bloody hell, this is pretty good here, I like this’.

“But it was not my choice to go there and it has to be said back in the 1980s working in the City I might well have been to one or two of these establishments.

I bet Trev has been to plenty. And Murray.

    I believe Helen Clark went to Mermaids while Prime Minister, soon after it opened.

      God Bruce please don’t tell me she was mermaid, I guess she could do a good impression of a rock fish though.

    I don’t care where our politicians go as long as I’m not paying for it.

    Maggie and I spent many a rainy afternoon in seedy north of England strip clubs, tucking 1 pound notes into the g-strings of oiled-up sacked miners. Good times, good times.

    How can pollies make a big deal about this in NZ – afterall they legalised prostitution, this is part of that “game” isn’t it? Used to be a bar in Auckland called Alfies – Alfies in the arcade was a gaybar, bet many a Labour pollie has whiled away the hours in that joint.

      If you had walked into this Alfies by mistake, and not known it was a gay bar, it could leave you with a nasty taste in your mouth

      Actually ended up there one night many years ago. We were out with work mates for a birthday, one of them and his boyfriend suggested we go there, so we did. The doormen initially turned us away until we said we sere with him. Very interesting and nobody bothered us.

    I heard Normal Norman and Nosy Shearer went, but they never got to see the strip, because the power went out!!!

    Winston Peters, obviously. Back in the 90s he bought me and my mate a drink at a well known Auckland strip joint after a lengthy, slurred explanation from him about the beauty of the female form.

    The Jones boy gets his thrills in private I believe.

    I recall in the dim distant past former Prime Minister Rob Muldoon was on an official visit to France.

    His hosts offered him a choice of evening entertainment options, with Rob choosing to visit the nude cabaret show Crazy Horse.

    If the images(NSFW) that appear in Google are representative he made a wise choice.
