Cameron: Not to be sniffed at.

Spiv & The Daily/Sunday Express

 

I first released this [now updated] article in March 2013, but with the emergence of the story about Cameron sexually abusing a pigs head, I think that the question of the Prime Mincers drug taking deserves another outing… More to come on the Pig-Gate story soon.  

In 2005 Dave ‘the rave’ Cameron was vying to become the leader of the Conservative Party.

In October of that year, his challenge appeared to take a nose dive after the question of his drug taking reared its ugly head.

Cameron however, refused to say whether or not he had used Cocaine – a Class-A drug – since leaving Eton; the posh school of choice for Pampered Arsewipes.

Strangely enough, all the other contenders for the party leaders job: Liam Fox, David Davies and Ken ‘i’ll sue’ Clarke, all answered the question.

In fact all said “no”, they hadn’t ever taken Coke – but then again they would do wouldn’t they?

Ken Clarke, certainly looks and acts like a posh crackhead and why he isn’t now on trial for touching up Ben Fellows – whom Clarke was told was only 15 years old at the time – is beyond me. 

However, Clarke and Davies were both blamed for orchestrating the smear campaign against Cameron and both were rewarded for trying to scupper Cameron’s leadership challenge by being given posts in his cabinet… Like ya do. 

Now, I find it very strange that Cameron refused to answer the question.

Nevertheless, as far as I’m concerned, his silence speaks volumes. After all, it is well documented that he very nearly got expelled from Eton for smoking – and some say ‘supplying’ – Cannabis.

Fortunately for Cameron, his suspicious, not to mention quick rise to fame was being progressed by some very powerful people and as such his subsequent victory was never in doubt. 

Course, Cannabis is only Class-B drug as is ‘speed’ – the poor-man’s Cocaine.

Indeed, I believe that Cannabis & Speed fall into the Class-B category because they are not particularly dangerous and questionably only mildly psychologically addictive.

And whilst I have no problem with people who smoke cannabis especially so with Cannabis oil being a cure for cancer, it is the hypocrisy of our politicians that I cannot stand.

On the other hand, drugs of the Class-A type are dangerous and highly addictive.

And with Sam Cam and George ‘gideon bean’ Osborne, both of whom are very close to the Prime Mincer and both known to have been Cocaine users, then I think that it is extremely important whether or not the leader of our country use to indulge in the highly addictive substance … Just sayin’.

Demand for Members of parliament to be drug tested. Starting with George Osborne.

Cameron is told to reveal all

Daily Express

Friday October 14th 2005.

TORY leadership sensation David Cameron was last night under pressure to say whether he had abused Class A drugs. Old Etonian Mr Cameron’s claims to lead his party into the next election were under growing scrutiny as he continued to refuse to answer questions about his exposure to drugs both while he was a university student at Oxford and since.

Senior Conservative back-bencher Edward Leigh called on the shadow education secretary to come clean on the issue, saying: “I think it does matter. He should tell the truth.”

Rival leadership candidate Liam Fox, a former hospital doctor, said that he had never taken cocaine, the recreational drug of choice for many rich young Londoners. Dr Fox said: “I have seen too many people suffering from the effects of drugs dragged into A&E departments.” Both the other remaining leadership contenders have also issued denials of drug abuse.

Ken Clarke yesterday said he had never taken cocaine, while David Davis has said he has never taken any illegal drug. team, But 39-year-old Mr Cameron who worked as a public relations man for a TV company before becoming an MP four years ago  was yesterday still refusing to elaborate on remarks that he had done many things he should not have done when younger.

One member of his campaign team, Surrey Heath MP Michael Gove, said Mr Cameron’s position will not change. “The stance is this – once you start answering questions about your private life, where do you stop? If you answer these questions, you are playing to an agenda of people who do not have the best interests of the Conservative Party at heart. “The issue has nothing to do with winning the next general election. That is the stance and it will not change.” But that did not wash with many Tory MPs amid signs of a backlash against Mr Cameron following his meteoric rise.

Some refused to consider that the question of whether a candidate broke the law by using Class A drugs could be dismissed as a “private life” issue. One Tory  insider said: “People are beginning to take a step back and ask themselves what we really know about this guy and whether he is all a bit too good to be true. “The drugs question will not go away and if he cannot follow the example of the other candidates and say he has not used hard drugs, it will soon overshadow the whole contest.”

Mr Cameron was said to have performed relatively poorly at a hustings meeting with the wives of Tory MPs yesterday. The four candidates will face a first ballot of Tory MPs on Tuesday, with the one coming last dropping out before a second ballot on Thursday whittles the choice down to two. A vote of all party members decides the contest in early December.

 

Cameron will be damaged by storm says his mother

October 16th 2005

DAVID Cameron’s mother leapt to his defence last night, claiming the drugs row that is overshadowing his bid for the Tory leadership is being blown out of proportion. Mary Cameron spoke out as her son’s campaign became engulfed by his continued refusal to reveal whether he has ever taken drugs. Meanwhile, supporters of the leadership front-runner went on the offensive, claiming allegations of drug use were being used as part of a smear campaign ahead of this week’s ballot.

They claimed Mr Cameron was the victim of a dirty tricks operation and pointed the finger at supporters of Shadow Home Secretary David Davis. A friend said: “There is quite a lot of evidence that it is the Davis people because they are getting desperate. They are just flailing around trying to stir things up. I don’t think it’s been deliberately orchestrated, but some of the other leadership candidates and the people around them are enjoying stirring things up.”

After Mr Cameron’s admission last week that a close member of his family had endured a drugs problem – reported to be heroin addiction – he is under growing pressure to come clean on whether he  took drugs not just during his university days but at any point in his professional life. Speaking at the family home in Peasmore, near Newbury, Berkshire, last night Mr Cameron’s mother told the Sunday Express: “We are very proud of David.”

Asked if she thought the drugs row was  being  blown out of all proportion Mrs Cameron, a magistrate, replied: “Yes, absolutely.” She declined to speak further saying that David, 39, had asked her and his father Ian, a retired stockbroker, not to make any public comment.

A friend of Mr Cameron’s said last night: “They are a very close family and are weathering the storm well. Of course, it has been difficult, but they are looking after each other and coping as best they can. “They are a very well-to-do and unassuming  bunch who keep themselves to themselves. We saw David’s parents on Friday and they seemed fine. All this must have come as such a shock to them. It’s testing times, but I’m sure they will pull through.”

But as Mrs Cameron tried to defend her son ahead of Tuesday’s first vote by Tory MPs, the former Government drugs tsar Keith Hellawell hit out at Mr Cameron for not being frank. “I think it has been handled very badly,” the former chief constable of West Yorkshire told Sky News. “I think David’s cause has been damaged whichever way the thing falls. He would expect to be questioned about his past, especially as in this case there must be some suspicions about his use of drugs in the past”. “I think the majority of people in this country believe that he must have taken drugs, otherwise why wouldn’t he just have said: ‘No, I have not been involved at all.’ It is this procrastination that winds people up. “Had he come clean, if there is anything to tell about, I think most people would have forgiven him, unless the drug taking was recent, unless it was serious class A drugs, in which case I think his party and the public would make their own judgement. “To deny it and think it goes away is very naive, because it doesn’t ”

David Davis added to his rival’s woes yesterday by saying in a Channel 4 interview that politicians should give straight answers to questions and he believed recent use of a class A drug should prevent a politician from leading the country.

But one well-placed Tory insider suggested it was former Chancellor Ken Clarke who had most to gain from the young moderniser falling at the first hurdle. He said: “When you’re dealing with mischief, you’ve got to look at who gains out of it. Who desperately needs to get Cameron out of the ballot before they are pushed out? Not Davis, because he’s all but assured of his place in the final two. It’s Ken Clarke. “The Cameron camp must be a little cheesed off that Ken Clarke keeps saying at every opportunity that he hasn’t used cocaine. No one was even mentioning cocaine until Ken did.”

Mr Cameron, with 34 declared supporters, is expected to nudge out Mr Clarke, who has 23, during the first ballot of MPs on Tuesday. Shadow Foreign Secretary Liam Fox is expected to fall at Thursday’s ballot, leaving Mr Cameron and Mr Davis to battle it out in a poll of 300,000 grass-roots members.

An aide to Mr Cameron insisted the media furore was not causing a crisis of confidence within his camp but one Tory insider suggested it would make undecided MPs think twice before backing the Shadow Education Secretary. He said: “I haven’t noticed anyone going wobbly because of these claims – yet.

But what happens if someone is sitting on this until he is elected leader?” William Hill are offering odds of 4/7 that Mr Cameron will not give a straight answer before the race is over. But the bookmaker still has him as 4/6 favourite.
