The Drug Race


The government’s chief advisor on drugs, who has criticised government policy of devaluing and distorting evidence and not using evidence-based decision-making, has been sacked. There’s simply no room for truth in politics. I hope to hell he has a case for unfair dismissal.

If members of my immediate family (i.e. those sharing my surname) refuse to admit, for example, an Australian Aborigine to our family by not actually marrying one who wants to become a family member, are we guilty of racial discrimination under the Race Relations Act?

  2. Room for truth in politics? Surprised you even allowed the two words in the same sentence!

    As for the racial discrimination question - hmm - does it matter if the Aborigine was a murdering knicker-sniffer or not? Because I am sure that there are more things to base a decision on than ethnic origin...

  3. re. Johnson's Nutt sack (oh the scope for puerile humour!) Why ask a question when you already know the answer?

    As for the Aborigine, just claim your religion forbids it, then you'll be fine.
