    Has he got a son, wife, aged granny he can blame it on? Friends and family are always disposable when it comes to clinging on to political office.

    The investigation has already been whitewashed

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4957354.stm

    The question is why was it not find in previous regular sweeps of his home - suggests it was a more recent stash.

    *privateeye in I know how to do a search and think they are talking bulltulip mode*

    Oh well. I can't somehow imagine John Read as a crazed druggie and probably he is quite innocent.

    Nevertheless, as a New Labour minister, I feel he is morally guilty and should have been imprisoned for life. If these police are doing these regular sweeps (for what exactly, bombs? bugs?) you would think that one of them would have the initiative to plant something. The police get more and more useless at doing their real jobs.

    They're too busy playing hide & seek, if that documentary the other night is anything to go by...

    I see this becoming a real storm in a tea cup during the week as everyone tries to take political advantage of Reids addiction!

    "The substance found weighed less than one gram with a street value of approximately 85p."

    The BBC's political correspondent Mark Saunders said the drugs were thought to have been found while Mr Reid was on an official visit to Afghanistan to visit British troops.


    Afghanistan duty free eh?

    Methinks there's a connection there. If not... please, please, please - let another one bite the dust...! It's been a fantabulous week...
    If you think my attitude stinks, you should smell my fingers.
