Tory club’s go­ing blue

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & -

A FOR­MER Con­ser­va­tive club is to go truly blue – and be­come a lap­dance venue.

El­e­gance owner Paul Ojla’s ap­pli­ca­tion to move into the build­ing was at first re­jected by city coun­cil­lors in Portsmouth but he got the go-ahead on ap­peal.

Mr Ojla, who plans to ap­ply for a sex­ual en­ter­tain­ment licence and open un­til 4am, said: “We do noth­ing detri­men­tal to the area.”

But cam­paign­ers say it is “far from a done deal” and plan to take the fight to the li­cens­ing com­mit­tee.
