They Tried Pot, Snorted Coke, Smoked Opium. One May Be Next British PM

Wednesday, 12 June 2019

This is a story about Tories, Conservative party leaders, doing drugs, and wanting to be prime minister.Presumably few of the 10 contenders selected Monday night by party members in Parliament want to be talking about their past illicit drug use as they begin their campaigns to replace outgoing Theresa May - but, hey, bummer.The party leaders partied, back in the day.

 

 

 

And now in the British press and social media scrum, it's all about who smoked or snorted what and when.Of the 10 candidates, eight have admitted to doing drugs.The Guardian newspaper thought it necessary to post an explainer headlined, "High Tories: how the leadership candidates' drug pasts compare."It's a bit painful to watch the candidates confess-tweet youthful indiscretions back at England's elite universities, while trying to turn attention to what they might do about the Value Added Tax, for example.
