David Cameron, the British Conservative leader, has been in a bit of strife because it turned out he was in trouble at school for smoking dope.
All he has to do is point out the greatest Tory leader of the 19th Century, Benjamin Disraeli, regularly used the stuff.
So, actually, did Queen Victoria, as a remedy for period pain.
I can’t help but wonder if the two had any spliff sessions together.
Dizzy: “I’ve just had this amaazzzing idea. We buy the Suez Canal! And then we make you Empress of India!! AWESOME!!!”
(Queen Vic collapses on the ground in a fit of giggles for 10 minutes: then rings for John Brown and sends out for 20 Moro Bars because “we have the munchies”)
