So It Begins : Clarke Starts Crackdown on Druids

The government today announced it was making raw magic mushrooms an illegal drug in Britain for the first time. The move is in today’s Drugs Bill published by the new Fat Controller, Home Secretary Charles Clarke. Currently it is legal to pick and eat the fungi whilst dancing around semi-naked at Stonhenge or Glastonbury. The courts recognise this, but the Fat Controller doesn’t like it.

So the Druids and other pagans are in real trouble. Historically the people of the British Isles have been eating magic mushroooms for thousands of years, they are said to have mystical properties and are used in ancient rituals to give an insight into the divine. Surely this ban contravenes some human right to religious freedom? How can eating something that grows wild and free on these shores be criminalised? Who can commit crimes whilst on magic mushrooms? Guido just laughs a lot.

First they came for the hippies…
