Heaven forbid that I ever throw my support behind a smug Tory toff but I’m astonished at the ridiculous fuss the UK press is currently making over David Cameron’s “drugs past”.
Where the hell is the story? Where’s the newsworthiness?
The guy took a toke on a spliff when he was a teenager... and he ISN’T denying it.
Now if he was denying it to all and sundry and flying in the face of hard facts then there’d be a story worth a column inch or two.
But "David Cameron Refuses To Deny He Was A Bit Naughty As A Lad" can hardly float any scandal monger’s boat. Even on a quiet news week.
Personally I think the story has been leaked to the press deliberately by Cameron’s supporters to try and gain the elusive youth vote. "Hey David took skunk when he was at Eton – he’s a geezer like us, in’ee?"
I bet his schooling at Eton is far more damaging to his quest to achieve super street cred than all the bongs he may or may not have smoked put together...
