Hi all so I'm at Butlins this week which is always a good holiday with kids as so much to keep them busy.

They have a little mix tribute band that has a song where the dancers and singers dress up in school uniform the male dancers are not sexualised but the female ones definitely are the skirts were extremely short. The singer's then carry on wearing the school girl outfits for a few songs.

I shouldn't be surprised but surely someone within their events team should have put two and two together and thought a family show with lots of little girls and teenage girls watching it do we really want our singers and dancers wearing sexy schoolgirl outfits.

What made it ten times worse for me was the Dad in his forties near me commenting "oh hello" when they came on in their outfits (they had previously had as equally tight and short outfits on).

I really would have loved to have said to him oh so you find someone dresses as an underage school girl attractive?

& Don't even get me started on the mixed sex toilets in the new pool that have massive gaps top and bottom 🤦‍♀️

Should have said "That for all the paedophiles in the audience, obviously" and pointed at him!

I am afraid that you can trace a path from St Trinians, through Britney Spears to School Disco in the Hammersmith Palais.

This article is no doubt a genuine commentary on club culture, but it doesn't read very well since the grooming scandals:
