John Reid’s Hash Hush-Up

They kept it quiet for a few days, but yet another Blairite has been politically and personally humiliated. It is becoming noticeable how it always seems to be Blairite loyalists that are making the (bad) news. Almost as if it was an organised dirty tricks operation…


A little bit of Afghan hash is hardly anything to get bothered about. Guido’s good friend got 24 months for the posession of 23 grammes he brought back from Morocco, (for a first offence). So on that basis, time per grammes wise, Reid would only get a month. You know how it is, you go on holiday, backpacking in Afghanistan, or even visiting the troops, and bring back a little souvenir given to you by a local...

The excuses are:

  • it was “minuscule”, weighing less than one gram and with a street value of 85p.
  • it could have been there for up to 20 years.
  • he was not in the house at the time it was found and was said by sources to have “no idea” it was in a guest area.”
  • “hundreds” of people are said to have been in it over the years.
Mr Reid can not be accused of hypocrisy, he was the Cabinet’s most ardent opponent of a smoking ban, man.

UPDATE : Two months ago cannabis campaigner Jeffrey Ditchfield, was arrested and charged with sending drugs to defence minister John Reid. Coincidence? More here. Hat-tip : Onan
