Another PMQs, another moral majority pleasing announcement from Brown

Text settings

Gordon Brown has just announced that they’ll be a review in to whether cannabis should be reclassified as a Class B drug. As we know, Brown only holds a review when he’s already made up his mind so we can expect cannabis to be back to being a Class B substance by the next election. Like his u-turn on super casinos last week, this is an announcement designed to demonstrate to Middle Britain that he shares its values and to deny Cameron this fertile electoral territory.
