Worth Thinking About

Instead of reading the papers over the last couple of weeks I read some books, one of them 'High Society' by Ben Elton, a copy of which somebody lent me some time ago. I find Elton's TV persona irritating, but I have to admit that his track record shows he can write some good stuff when he chooses to. With Elton there is always the sense of a wagging finger in the background, but the book is a worthwhile contribution to the drugs debate. The novel sets out fairly convincingly the way in which drugs are now inextricably woven into our society, from the glossy end right down into the gutter.

Anyone out there read it?
