That Picture Promise

Guido did promise a picture of a government minister breaking the law this weekend (actually it would have been video footage from a phone camera). Guido is unable to provide the spectacle because his source has backed out. The video would have shown a minister at a recent public event, getting down, shaking his booty and smoking a joint. Then shaking his booty a bit more stoned. The minister’s companion can be seen in shot rolling a joint and crumbling the dope. The minister in one shot is standing brazenly smoking the spliff and a companion tells him to sit down out of concern that they are being observed.

The source feels that ruining a man’s career for just smoking a joint would be wrong and that Guido should be ashamed of himself. Having done some research Guido has discovered no hypocrisy on the issue on the part of the minister and that he even publicly defended Cameron on this issue last year. You know, maybe my source has a point.

But how many people have gone to jail for doing the same. Why should lawmakers be allowed to be lawbreakers? If it wasn’t for the fact that Guido believes in “freeing the weed”, the minister would probably be resigning tomorrow.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
