Gove's logic: he won't ban the import of hunting trophies, but we're sending troops to support anti-poaching operations. This one is on this lying dwarf:

It's a boy and his name is Archie - the flame-red hair Archie Andrews of Archie Comics? ;-)

Norwegian blue will soon be the only bird species in the UK if Gove isn't stopped.

BTW, UKIP and Farage to save the British dairy industry

The current annual rate of fatal stabbings per capita is remarkably close in the UK and the US, at roughly 0.0005%. A relevant difference is that in the UK, murders with knife make up some 40% of the total, whereas in the US it is closer to 10%. Perhaps if the UK adopted the assault weapon and handgun free-for-all model of the US, there would be less handwringing about stabbings? I do remember a joke from the days I lived in Oakland, CA, a pretty rough city at the time: "we live in a quiet neighborhood, they only allow drive-by stabbings".

Better to be stabbed or shot? Still a few years before we need to decide.

The Tory leadership race: vote for your favourite illegal drug user

Tory leadership candidate Michael Gove has said he "deeply regrets" taking cocaine more than 20 years ago.
International Development Secretary Rory Stewart, who is one of those standing against him, has already apologised for smoking opium - a class A drug in the UK - at a wedding in Iran 15 years ago.

And Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt - another candidate - told the Times he had drunk a cannabis lassi while backpacking through India.

Should there be hyphens in “favourite illegal drug user” just to clarify what we are voting for?

It's purposely ambiguous.

Should I advise the East London underage drug dealers to apologise if they get caught? No jail?

I don’t think any politicians have yet admitted to dealing.
