Just Say… Oh

I don’t know whether David Nutt was right to criticise the Government’s drugs policy or not, but I’m slightly concerned that the government’s decision-making process increasingly seems to be based on what will look good in the Daily Mail.

Scientists are not infallble, that’s for sure, but politicians seem afraid to tackle the issues head-on. It’s a debate that needs serious attention and careful thought. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like we’re going to get it.

In other news, seeing various combinations of “nut” and “sack” in headlines all over the place is very pleasing to the puerile side of my nature.
