Government officials suggest that cannabis is dangerous and causes mental health problems. Some people would suggest that governments are dangerous and cause mental health problems. Rational thinking has gone up in a puff of smoke. Albeit an extremely giggly puff of smoke leaving behind a medley of sweet and crisp packets.
Aside from sipping cold beer and working on topping up the tan, this summer’s holiday was memorable for another, more significant reason. While abroad, it came to attention that there was a young boy staying in the same complex, that never left the pool. He was loud, excitable, and from a distance he was just a regular child enjoying his summer holiday. It wasn’t until later that we realised that he was just one of many young children suffering from autism. In some ways it was a lesson in what can be the harsh differences between appearance and reality.
Finally, we break the worst taboo.

The boy, although seen as equally irresponsible, does not often get the attention he deserves, purely because, although it’s half his, the child is not growing inside him. People always scorn the men who will do a runner faced with this ordeal, but what about the ones who would stay? What about the men who, given the chance, would take the pill instead?
Homelessness is an enduring and chronic disease.
Squatting could now become a criminal offence, giving those who impugn the law a criminal record, up to 6 months in prison, a £5000 fine, or all of the above. It would appear that this law too has been a swift decision, and as it germinates the consequences will be horrific to many homeless people in the UK who have little other option but to break it. These sick bastards are doing all they can to drive these people over the edge. Anyone who’s walked home through Leeds at half 4 knows that hell hath no fury like a tramp who’s bored and full of White Lightning.
In all likelihood, diabetes is a disease that you will know of – be it through your own experience, or through a relative or friend. Even if by some slim chance you don’t know anyone that has diabetes, it is extremely likely that you will have heard of it. Diabetes is rapidly becoming one of the UK’s biggest health risks, and it is estimated that by 2025 there will be five million people affected in the country.
