Fucking Nutts

Just when you think we’ve got a Home Secretary that’s ok, he goes and blows all credibility just because he either doesn’t agree with someone or the Daily Mail/Express bandwagon has claimed another MP.

Against all scientific advice Alan Johnson has sacked the head of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, Professor David Nutt. Why does the Government actually bother having experts or commisioning studies on anything if they are just going to ignore the advice?

I know that it will take a very brave Minister and Government to have a sensible debate on drugs but surely the money we waste on a phoney ‘war on drugs’ is criminal, just as criminal as the dealers. Sense needs to prevail and if we are ever to tackle problematic drug use we need to stop making users into criminals. Lets be fair almost all illegal substances were developed for the medicinal market. The Battle of Britain would never have been won by the few without pilots speeding the tits off. MDMA was initially trialed in WWI… just didn’t have the desired effect.

Alan Johnson… you’ve just lost my support. I thought you were a decent guy and a reasonable Labour man. Sadly I know think you’re just another twatish MP.

  1. I’ve always regarded AJ as an OK MP who as a former trade union leader was one of the few real lefties remaining in the Labour Party.

  2. ALL politicians are idiots.

    What’s really stupid about this is that Alan Johnson said Nutt was undermining the scientific independence of the ACMD. Surely he was demonstrating its independence rather than doing what Johnson wanted, which was toeing the Government line…

    Indeed, there was a time I though Alan Johnson may have been the future of the Labour Party and maybe a half-decent, level headed PM… now I just think he’s another daft cunt!

  4. You need to look at the bigger picture, it wouldn’t surprise me if Alan Johnson is the next Labour party leader after the nasty party win next years election!!

  5. I sort of agree with Andy…but..not all politicians are idiots..many are obviously very clever n devious…they just treat us like idiots…[and i guess we must be idiots if we believe all the verbal turds that drop out their gobs every time they speak]…

    ps..i say let ‘Skynet’ take over the world n let terminators sort the twats out…[probably not very conservation-minded tho]….

  6. Good headline on the Guardian website today (deliberate I’m sure!):

    Minister retreats after criticising Nutt sacking
