UK johns to be "Named & Shamed"

In a story posted Tuesday in British newspaper The Kent Online-Medway, reporter Alan Watkins writes that "kerb crawlers" or johns trawling for prostitutes face being "named and shamed" on street signs in the Medway area's red light district:
Labour councillor Bill Esterson told Medway council's finance scrutiny committee last Thursday that details of men brought before the courts for kerb crawling in Rochester and Chatham could soon appear on the signs...And he added that the prostitutes were only there because the kerb crawlers want them: "So if we make it difficult for their customers to proposition them, they will go away."
