Want To Be An Icon Of The Left? Get Into Booze, Dope And Lots Of Sex

Dan Majestic writes from New York: Have you ever wondered how is it that so many unremarkable people, both dead and living, get praised for no apparent reason? Take Marilyn Monroe, for example. She was no big actress, no stunning beauty and never said anything of any interest. (The playwright Arthur Miller divorced her after one year citing her unbearable stupidity.) And yet, we are supposed to believe all those wide-eyed lefties that she was some huge acting talent and was a style icon of her time. Now why would people be saying things that are blatantly untrue? I mean, you only need to see one film with Monroe to realise that she was no actress and no stunner. Well, let me tell you why it happens. The thing is that Monroe fits the role of an icon of the Left perfectly. She possessed no talents,... 

War On Drugs? What War Would That Be?

War On Drugs? What War Would That Be?

R.F.Wilson writes from London: Are you into conspiracy theories? I’m not a fan myself, to be honest. I’m more into cock-ups really, believing that most things go wrong as a result of stupidity, incompetence and bad planning by politicians, diplomats and the military. But one thing has been making me suspicious for years: how come the war on drugs never seems to change anything? You know what I think? I think there’s a powerful lobby that operates throughout the whole world and does everything possible to promote and glamorise drugs. You just need to look at the way drug taking is presented in the movie and music industries, on television and radio, in books and newspapers and even by politicians and the medical profession to realise that a massive campaign in under way to...

More Pearls Of Wisdom. From The Boys At Stirring Trouble

Today we present more humorous pearls of wisdom and witty observations from the boys at Stirring Trouble. The best way to put youngsters off booze and dope is to portray alcoholics and drug addicts as sad pathetic wankers. Which they are. Every time Warren Buffett throws a lifeline to some sinking company, rest assured it’s a nasty company. Because he’s that sort of man. F..k serious news! Let’s have beautiful news, hosted by beautiful presenters to inform beautiful people they are beautiful. How thick do you need to be not to understand the dangers that the EU poses for its members. People who push for relaxation of drug laws are usually either addicts themselves or are on the payroll of the drug mafia. I often hear chicks complain that good men are hard to find. Well, girls, it’s... 

The Medical Profession Has Invented A New Way To Become Rich

The Medical Profession Has Invented A New Way To Become Rich

Martin McCauley writes from Los Angeles: Dr Conrad Murray, soon to become just Mr Conrad Murray, possibly qualifies for a Nobel Prize in medicine. He has discovered a new way for a doctor to become rich. Pump your patient full of drugs, tell him he has committed some heinous crimes and then offer a way out. For a small consideration, say $1 million, you will keep silent about them. Since the patient and the doctor are the only ones aware of the crimes, the police would not be investigating them. This opens up huge possibilities. A new condition has come into existence, the ‘I didn’t know I did it’ syndrome. My doc tells me that I really am a Jekyll and Hyde character. Well, as a respected medical practitioner he should know. There are so many diseases nowadays – they all seem to have...

More Pearls Of Wisdom. From The Boys At Stirring Trouble

Today we present more humorous pearls of wisdom and witty observations from the boys at Stirring Trouble. On all sorts of subjects, mostly politics and sex. The Arab League that includes some of the most vicious dictatorships is demanding that Syria conducts democratic reforms. Hypocrites! How would Britain that is openly supporting Syrian rebels feel if some government met dissident IRA groups to offer them support? Technically speaking the press in the West is busy performing one long fellatio on politicians and bankers. Not a pretty sight. One of the most overrated books in literature has to be the Great Gatsby. Endless pages of meaningless dialogues. The George Osborne appreciation society that boasts having George Osborne as its member says it has full confidence in Chancellor George Osborne. The...

Drugs That Make You A Better Person? That’s A Very Dodgy Path To Take

Martin McCauley writes from Oxford: I am back at the University of Oxford for a crash course into some of the disciplines that can change your mind and your personality. They are called the neurosciences. Take for instance cognitive dissonance. That is a fancy name for being slightly cuckoo. The scientists here are testing drugs that could banish that condition for ever. Mind you, they are not sure what the long term consequences are. Take drug A at the age of 16 and who knows what you will be become at 60. And how about drugs that enhance your learning capacity? You can acquire drugs on the internet – I’m not going to give you their names – which will ensure that you stay awake for up to 30 hours. Great if you have to submit all your term essays the day after tomorrow. Even more promising... 

Liberal Democrats Still On Track To Be Out Of Government By 2015 At The Latest

Liberal Democrats Still On Track To Be Out Of Government By 2015 At The Latest

Adam Lovejoy writes from Birmingham: Aah, the sweet smell of weed that hangs over Birmingham these days. You can easily tell that the Liberal Democrats are holding their big annual gig here. The climax of the gathering at Birmingham’s ICC was the motion, passed unanimously by the delegates on Sunday, to legalise cannabis and ‘other personal use drugs’, which covers pretty much every type of dope imaginable. They say Pete Doherty, the talented singer, sent a message of support to the conference, having heard about the motion, praising the LibDems for sending out a clear signal that taking dope is OK. The motion on legalising cannabis became binding Liberal Democrat policy the moment it was passed. And whatever you think about these guys and girls, they do overcome their differences when... 

George Osborne’s Chances Of Becoming The Next PM Rise Dramatically

George Osborne’s Chances Of Becoming The Next PM Rise Dramatically

Thomas Mathew writes from London: Chancellor George Osborne’s chances of becoming the next British Prime Minister have risen dramatically, after a former prostitute has claimed that he took drugs regularly in his younger days. As soon as news came from Australia that Natalie Rowe, a former owner an escort agency, gave an interview to the local television, telling of young George’s wild drug taking, bookmakers slashed their odds on him replacing David Cameron in the next year or two. ‘It’s one thing when Osborne came across as a not-so-bright former public school boy with rich parents,’ one bookmaker said, ‘but it’s a totally different game when it turns out that he sniffed cocaine a lot. Cameron better watch out now.’ Ms Rowe told Australian TV that back in the 1990s young George...

Amy Winehouse? Great Talent She Wasn’t

Adam Lovejoy writes from London: Well, it’s no surprise that the Anything Goes lot is praising the late Amy Winehouse as if she was some huge talent. She was nothing of the sort. And she chose to screw up her life herself, so there’s no point in blaiming others. Let’s be brutally honest about Winehouse: she was never that good a singer. If she weren’t famous for her drug taking she wouldn’t be that big at all. Because she hadn’t broken any new ground in music and she hand’t come up with some new unique style. She also didn’t reveal anything to us in her lyrics that we haven’t heard before. The media was obsessed with Winehouse because she was seen as ‘controversial’ and because she was prepared to destroy herself very publicly.... 

Wondering: Do People Who Demand That Drugs Are Legalised Use Them Themselves?

Wondering: Do People Who Demand That Drugs Are Legalised Use Them Themselves?

Chris Gray writes from London: I’m just wondering: does Dame Judi Dench, the famous hugely overrated actress, do drugs? And if she does, what sort of dope she prefers: weed, cocaine, crack, heroin or maybe all of them together? And what about actress Julie Christie, singer Sting and film director Michael Lee: do they do drugs as well? Why I’m asking all this, you may be wondering. Well, it so happens that these and other high profile public figures, including former politicians and senior cops, have signed an open letter addressed to Prime Minister David Cameron, calling on him to review the laws on drugs in Britain and get them decriminalised. The idea is to let anyone, who is into dope, purchase it with the same ease as a six-pack of beer or a bottle of wine. The people, who put their...
