Fetish club sets up on Home Secretary's turf

Clarke confronted by naughtiness in Norwich

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

A concerned Register reader from Norwich has got in touch with some disturbing news from the constituency of liberty-eating Home Secretary Charles Clarke.

Despite Clarke's best efforts a fetish club is shortly to open in the East Anglian town. The Trample Fetish Club offers the citizens of Norwich, and beyond, the chance to be trodden on, sat upon or given a general beating by a variety of lovely hostesses.

The local council granted planning permission despite objections from Clarke, the local MP, and 31 other people.

The club, due to open soon, has a Trample room, a Crush room and a Smoothing room - that's having a lady sit on your face for those not up to speed with Norfolk's sexual mores. The Trample Scene website claims, probably correctly, to be "The only Trample Fetish Club in a 100 mile radius of Norwich."

The final part of the club is the dungeon which sounds more like somewhere Clarke would like to send terrorist suspects for interrogation than a fun night out:

The website promises: "Not for the fainthearted'!! - Our hostesses will whip you, kick you, stamp on you, punch you, walk all over you, chain you up and humiliate you. Will you survive our dungeon experience!!"

Membership starts at just £125 a year for mid-week entry.

Roy Singfield, the owner of the club, told the Reg: "We'll be opening on the 26th, with a bit of luck - the boys are still working hard to get it ready." He said around 150 people have already applied for membership.

Many thanks to Register reader Jason Dagless who tipped us off. He said: "All the current hooha from Mr Clarke and his ideas for reducing our freedoms to stop terrorism. Well he is my local MP and recently a business man has asked to set up a "Fetish Trample Club" in the street opposite where I live (Prince of Wales Rd, Norwich). Many residents objected and even Mr Clarke apparently made his objections most clear.

"However, the local council ignored him and the club is to go ahead. If Mr Clarke can't stop a few middle aged pervs, then what chance does he have against world terrorism?" What chance indeed.

Dagless tried to contact Clarke via his website but it was down.

More information available at the Norwich Evening News here and from the club's website, which is not safe for work unless you have a broadminded boss here

There are historical roots to all this painful strangeness - Norwich was for many years the centre of "Norfolk wrestling" or shin kicking. Two men wearing hobnail boots would grab each others' arms and kick lumps out of their opponents shins. More on shin kicking here.
