Cocaine is bad, kids!
The Scum – See the hell you inflict, Kate: Cocaine fiends Kate Moss and Pete Doherty have been invited to Colombia by the country’s government to see the bloody mayhem caused by the drug. Vice President Francisco Santos exclusively told The Sun: “I wish they’d come to see what cocaine is doing to my country. They’d be ashamed.” The invitation comes as The Sun launches a major probe into the scourge of cocaine, here and in South America. Here on Day One, our Chief Feature Writer reports from the drugs front line in Colombia’s rainforest.
The Scum Says – Blood money: All over Britain, from posh dinner parties to dingy pubs, hundreds of thousands of people snorted cocaine at the weekend. For many it becomes an addiction that ruins their lives. Most will think they are immune so long as they stick to “recreational” use of the drug. But every one of the estimated 1.75million who have snorted coke – and who think it is all a harmless bit of fun – should read our chilling report. And they should think again. It is an horrific description of the devastation being wreaked on the people of Colombia, the country that supplies 80 per cent of our cocaine. It shows how the drugs money is financing a terror movement with links to al-Qaeda, creating gangs that murder without a thought and destroying the tropical rain forests, adding to the threat of global warming. As Britain’s top policeman Sir Ian Blair says, people “think the price of a wrap is fifty quid, but someone has died bringing it to the dinner table”. While otherwise law-abiding middle-class users are on a high, ruthless drugs barons cannot stoop low enough to protect the hundreds of millions of pounds flowing from Britain 5,000 miles across the Atlantic. It is nothing short of blood money, donated by people who foolishly regard themselves as respectable.
A major probe, huh? I look forward to Day Two. Perhaps it will contain a special ‘confession’ feature from a regular gakhead such as [obscured on legal advice] entitled “My Cocaine Hell”…
UPDATE (Fri 9 Mar) – Tch. What a let-down. The Scum bailed out after this single follow-up on Tuesday.
