Keith Vaz Told Commons He Was “Surprised” MPs Used Poppers

Look back at Keith Vaz’s interventions in the Commons debate on drugs in January. Just eight months ago, Vaz told the House of his “great surprise” at revelations MPs had used poppers:

“The shadow Minister, my hon. Friend the Member for West Ham (Lyn Brown), has said—this was a bit of shock for me after 28 years in this House—that Ministers have stood at the Dispatch Box having had poppers. I think that is what she said and it was a great surprise to the House. She obviously knows more than I do about such issues”

Lyn Brown definitely does not know more about poppers than Keith Vaz. 

Vaz, a fan of cocaine and poppers-fuelled gay sex parties, then told the House that he opposed liberalising drugs:

“I have great respect for my hon. Friend, who was a distinguished member of the Home Affairs Committee. I know that his position is to liberalise the law on drugs, but that is not my position and nor is it that of the Committee.”

He vowed to vote to ban poppers if they were proved to be harmful:

“Without equivocation, I give him a guarantee that if the review decides that poppers are harmful, I will be the first in the Division Lobby with him, supporting that view.”

The pinnacle of slippery Vaz’s shameless hypocrisy? There will be more…
