    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.

    Anti-social

    Now local authorities have been circulated with a scheme for using by-laws to require shirts in town centres and to brand men who won't wear them as anti-social.

    Good. There's no place in any civilised society for scrawny off-blue chests

    I would like to take a different approach to this issue. In these days of equality women should be allowed, nay encouraged, to 'get 'em out for the lads' in public. Hot ones only of course, no one needs to see the saggy spaniels ears on the fat biffers I see wandering around my city centre. :D

    What about women in bikinis? What about men in see-through string vests? Where will they draw the line?

    Or short women in fat skirts.

    I think this thread was doomed from the start. Though kudos to the OP for not claiming that it proves interest rates will rise....

    Nothing worse than a crowd of people and some sweaty guy bumps into you (common at gigs) and you stick for a second.

    Thats fine, but walking around in town on a boiling hot day shirtless if OK IMO.

    What about down at the park? What about at swimming pools?

    Unworkable.

    I'd like to walk around without a Tshirt all the time... but I would get arrested. ;)

    It isn't fair but because men can they should be left to do so, however like Gilly says where do you draw the line?

    For example I was in the supermarket on Saturday and cringed at a girl who was wearing a bikini top as I thought it was unhygenic (yes she was wearing a fat skirt too :p)

    I personally think when inside blokes (and women in bikini tops) should wear a T shirt - especially somewhere which sells food etc.

    Still, what about when walking to and from the park/pool. Do you need to cover up then?

    I agree it is trashy but I don't see a problem with it. Generally the guys doing it look trashy anyway :p

    We all know that this would be abused and extended with possible asbos and fines.
