New laws to ban men going topless?

    Not that I'm a fan of this, but this is going a bit too far! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=397618&in_page_id=1770&in_a_source=

    Men may be barred from baring their chests - and stomachs - in public under new local laws being considered by town halls.

    They would stop men stripping off their shirts in crowded town centres and give powers to police to remove any who defy the cover-up laws.
    "There is a problem," Mr Bennett said yesterday. "In my part of the country we are trying to revitalise the main shopping precinct.

    "But one of the things that is depressing for anyone going shopping is the numbers of shaven-headed men, mainly in their 30s and 40s, who seem to think people want to see their torsos."

    I seem to recall that Palm Beach, Fla., had a similar law a while back. Not West Palm, but actual Kennedy-infested Palm Beach.

    Does the female muffin top apply too?

    Is this really so big a concern in London that they are going to waste tax payer money on A) putting this bill through, and then B) actually enforcing it?

    The thought of Colin Montgomerie walking around shirtless should make this law a slam dunk.

    I can't complain much about this. I know I wouldn't want to see me with no shirt on. :)

    You know, this law has its good points and its bad points. Some people should not be permitted to go topless. But if you look like you belong on the pages of Muscle and Fitness, by all means, take more than half of our clothes off and strut your stuff in front of me. Please.
