What a shocker! The man who before he became leader described himself as an “instinctive libertarian”
, said he had “a normal university experience”
and backed drug liberalisation for medicinal purposes, has confirmed that he had more than a few spliffs in his youth. But does he pass the hypocrisy test?
Yes. He has said the UN should consider legalising drugs and that the legal classification of ecstasy should be downgraded. He has never lied about his past either as far as we know.
According to the Mail on Sunday he also had a few worries when he was a SpAd at the Home Office and they were clamping down on Acid House parties, parties to which he and Samantha were not strangers. Can’t recall seeing him, mind you, if you can remember anything…
