does anyone give a shit?
would anyone actually give a shit if he was still doing it now?
but 75% of the UK population, all of whom are convinced that any drug is terrible will care.
you can thank the daily mail and its contemporaries for that.
I HATEZ THA RIGHT WING
just a shift away from ignorance and sensationalism would be cool though.
It's such a non-story. I can't see there being many people left that consider smoking a spliff in your late teens to be particularly shocking
And besides, he wanted us to hug a hoodie. He's blatantly still using, the drug addled narrow-eyed Buzz Lightyear lookalike
although no one's really condemned him either in the press or any of his rivals yet, so it's a bit odd.
which is why i'm not voting for him
he's been evading all questions about it.
you have work in the morning.
He could be doing cocaine in a hotel room with a hooker for all I care.
I can't imagine he did.
It's probably Tory spin rather than anyone-else spin anyway, because anyone sensible will ignore it.
the slightly 'trendy' Tory swing voters will love it.
Best thing that could have happened to the pro-weed crowd.
David Camerom got nicely toasted all through school and is now leader of the Conservative Party.
Charles Kennedy drunk the shit out of the last decade and is now reduced to fronting Channel 4 list shows.
The system works.
oh no wait hang on i don't care
shocked and appalled.
OUT of the closet.
They are doing it thinking it might improve his rating in the polls, in the same way as having an affair seemed to give Paddy Ashdown more street cred.
...or am I just becoming cynical in my old age?!
Coz they're all Grandads who want the preservation of their silly values.
he didn't have much of a tory reputation to start with.
anything that says that someone 'smoked drugs' is awesome. it's up there with the phrase 'marijuana cigarette'
What is more interesting is that he was let off, while others were expelled.
the ones deemed to be dealing were thrown out and the others made to write lines in latin. lots of lines.
I'd give a shit if he was doing it now but intended to keep weed illegal as that'd be a touch hypocritical.
it's none of anyone's business.
It's depressing if he feels admitting it would lose him voters.
Of course it's no-one's business but his and the media shouldn't even have printed the story. I just meant it's depressing we live in a society where cannabis smoking is commonplace but people have to pretend they've never done it (or at least not admit they've done it) if they want to be taken seriously as politicians.
Labour > Conservative
Conservative > Labour
Meaningless words. All each of those fuckers cares about is being 'important'
