The government have sacked their chief advisor on drugs after he went beyond his remit and started trying to rail road the government into accepting his policies by promoting his views on television.
And now he's been sacked he is doing the rounds on television playing the victim.
Who cares? Well apart from the BBC and the rest of the drug soaked media, very few people. This is the lead news on BBC television this morning - as if any of us care one bit if the government's advisor on drugs has been sacked. It's not important - though if you watch the BBC you could be forgiven for thinking it is.
Professor Nutt is claiming that some of his colleagues may quit in sympathy. Good! I think they should all be sacked. We don't need them, they don't serve any purpose and if they believe that they have the right to set government policy they should stand for election.
