From The Telegraph in London:
Crack-smoking antics of Rob Ford do not appear to have put off his supporters, poll shows.
And this from The Australian:
Nigella ‘Higella’ Lawson had the taste for cocaine, her ex-husband has told a court.
Illegal narcotics are a curse on our society but they are as deeply embedded as alcohol and are used extensively by our political elites. But it is only conservatives who will be whipsawed into political destruction by even a hint of such impropriety. I am no defender of the use of cocaine but I am not content to let the sanctimonious hypocritical mobs of the left deprive us of some of our potential leaders because of rules they do not abide by themselves. I will be surprised if this revelation about Nigella Lawson ruins her career but it might (she is, after all, the daughter of Nigel Lawson). But if she were an established participant on the right, whatever the facts of the case might be, the certainty would be that her career would be over.
As for the real Rob Ford, or at least for another side, see this.
