ONE of the independent candidates for the Clacton by-election is a sex worker campaigning for sexual freedom.

Charlotte Rose, 34, who lives in London, calls herself a “high-class courtesan” and charges £180 an hour for her services.

She will be standing in the Clacton by-election on October 9.

She previously appeared in a Channel 4 TV series about prostitution called Love For Sale, which starred Rupert Everett and Russell Brand.

“My main policy is about sexual freedom – taking control away from others,” she said.

“I also want there to be better sexual education in schools.

“Today’s politicians have a lack of knowledge and understanding about what’s really happening.”
