Depends on the war. I waged my own war on drink and drugs for years. It was a Borg Collective conquest war. My mission was to assimilate and metabolise intoxicants wherever I found them. Their resistance was futile. :lol:
Hahaha :lol: me too years ago.

They should legalise weed, as many know on here I've had problems with anxiety. Well I managed to get some indica pot, blueberry and it crushed my anxiety.

They should legalise it. I think. :think1 But it is a double edged sword.

It's been quite some time since I indulged after many, many years of daily pretty heavy partaking. I stopped being a regular user years ago because it was, I felt, inducing anxiety. And when I would score some again I'd experience the two edges within a fairly short time frame.

Initially, it would be, "Fuck, this is nice, now I remember why I started smoking this shit".

Then after a while it would be, "Fuck, now I remember why I stopped smoking this shit". :rofl

I'm now back in the fancy some weed again cycle but unfortunately it's been so long I've lost contact with all my old sources. I'm hoping to see someone next week who mentioned they knew a source and I'll see what develops.
 
And in an appearance on Have I Got News For You in 2005, Mr Johnson admitted being given cocaine but suggested he had not actually taken it, saying: "I think I was once given cocaine but I sneezed and so it did not go up my nose. In fact, I may have been doing icing sugar."

This cracked me up when I read it...

The only two I see as leaders are Gove and Stewart.
Johnson is a brilliant orator, very intelligent, but he is not on top of the detail in his career, he strikes me as a little lazy. I would be worried if he became prime minister, also his views on getting the Brexit deal through are not credible.

The deal doesn’t need to go through. Legally we already left and there is an unreported case going off about that.

If either of those two win they will be the last ever Tory pm

Apologising for taking cocaine, Mr Gove said: "I deeply regret the mistake that I made.

"It was a crime, it was a mistake."

Sky news rolled out Owen Jones to decry him

It was typically cringe.

Apparently this means he lied on his American visa form and it could be the end of his challenge which is good as he wouldn’t deliver

In fact nobody is gonna deliver unless they suspend parliament

I can't agree on either Stewart or Gove. The former comes across as fucking odd and the latter is an untrustworthy cunt even by the standards of politicians. And they are both Remainers in essence. In fact, I'm not seeing one currently declared contender who I would categorise as a Believer Leaver. They are all Remainers of a shade, some more up front about it than others so hopefully someone who has kept their counsel will declare tomorrow and we might have a Believer Leaver do a John Major and steal in.


Why is she not running?
TBH, she isn't up to the job, I don't think. I'm not sure she ever will be but what's needed right now is a wartime PM and the characters who can do that are few and far between. For example, whether you liked her or not, Thatcher I'd put money on not blinking when it comes to a stare down with cunts like Merkel and the Eurocrats. Patel isn't the kind of big beast who's going to pull that off, they don't even know who the fuck she is. She's a perennial lieutenant, not a general, same as McVey.

It's interesting because there is a strong opinion that the Miller case and what it established means that it is indeed the case. The PM used an Executive Power and take a decision which was ultra vires. However, would you trust the Establishment courts to follow Miller as it logically should and say we have left? Or will they have spent the time they have created by making sure what should have been an ultra-urgent case, but has very much had to wait its turn before being heard, to work out how they can contrive the legal contortions to declare it a petition without merit?

I can't remember exactly what the wording is on the visa application but I'm reasonably sure it asks about convictions, not indulging. However, I'm ready to stand corrected on that.

Can't see Gove or Stewart as leader, they are no.2s at best.
I keep repeating myself but I truly believe David Davis is ideal to step in at this moment in time but he doesn't appear to want the job...

He's been the man for the job since before they went for Cameron over him in that contest.

I've said before I suspect that defeat pissed him off in a big way - both the loss to a shallow inferior and the understanding of what it could mean about the state of the Party - i.e. they'd swallowed that shite from May about being "The Nasty Party" and had moved left as a result. Then they were subject to liberal entryism from cunts like Soubry and Wollaston and actual Conservatives started to become a dying breed in their own party.

I thought he'd stand against May when Cameron stood down but obviously he didn't. The sense I get is he's having none of it unless the party grandees come and ask, nay implore him, to step up and get them out the shit. Which they won't, so he won't.

Why is she not running?
Because the ERG are cowards. They constantly snipe but are determined to never have any responsibility. Astonishing that there is no ERG candidate among a very large field of candidates.

Mogg wouldn’t go over with the coal eating northern labour voter although he would be a brilliant pm IMO

its still common to hear people up this way saying they wouldn't vote for him because of the way he speaks or that he doesn't know how much a pint of milk is or a loaf of bread.
Weird...
Ain't no different down south, people call him posh cunt likewise.
