In the UK (illegal) drugs are classified A,B,C. Blair dropped cannabis from B to C. Broon reversed this despite the governmental panel of scientists saying this was wrong. The same panel of scientists have recently said that ecstasy (MDMA) shouldn’t be class A but ought to be downgraded. Jacqui Smith, the current pig-in-knickers at the Home Orifice, has said this would send out the “wrong message” or some such demented muntering to the Daily Mail reading classes.
I have one question. What the fuck do they pay these scientists for if they then utterly ignore their advice?
I think I know. And it is as utterly dismal as you might imagine.
Government has to be seen as being “to the right” of scientific views. The scientific view is just there as a baseline so the government can therefore look “tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime” in comparison to it.
Real science has nothing to do with it. It is merely the fig leaves that Jacqui uses to cover her pendulous dugs and wizard’s sleeve of a minge. As far as covering her arse is concerned – I dunno. There are flight decks of Nimitz-class carriers that wouldn’t manage that feat.
And yes, I do mean flight decks.
