  1. Sex antics in the bogs are ok if luvvies/slebs do them but coke snorting by bankers isn’t???

    Because coke snorting is BAD (says a spew of actors??)–or because bankers are?

    A gaff which had £20 grand put behind the bar–ie an epic piss– up is whining about debauchery?

    But it seems the new version of hedonism must be “clean-living” debauchery with drugs only self-administered to the correct orifice as defined by Britain’s leftist Glitterati dross.

  2. Philip Scott Thomas

    There’s a reason BBC staff parties are known as ‘blizzards’, you know.

    And then there’s that old joke about how, if Britain’s coke supply were cut off overnight, the whole Beeb would collapse.

  3. The Groucho is the fashionable private club where founding member Stephen Fry banned mobile phones

    Are we really sure this is even about the drugs?

  4. It really makes my blood boil how the same luvvies who carp on about social justice and equality buy cocaine that directly funds murderous criminal gangs who undermine the rule of law in some of the most impoverished countries on earth. Hypocritical bastards, all of them.

  5. So Much For Subtlety

    Mr Ecks – “Sex antics in the bogs are ok if luvvies/slebs do them but coke snorting by bankers isn’t??? ”

    Sex, even in the toilet, is not illegal. Snorting coke is. Let’s not become the mirror image of the Guardian and automatically defend anything someone does just because they are bankers. Snorting coke is illegal. It involves giving large amounts of money to some of the worst people on the planet. It is perfectly reasonable for some club members to be concerned if their club is becoming an upmarket crack den.

    If they cut out the middle man and directly kidnapped and brutalised Colombian children in their dining room, it would be little more or little less objectionable. Presumably we would all object if someone did it. Even if they held the Tory whip.

    You could say the same for the TV license.

    Yes, but unfortunately our entire culture is dominated by what people say, not what they do. If you say the ‘right’ things, you can do anything.

  8. The luvvies really hate it when they’re not the most risque people in the building any more.

    Look darlings, the luvvies who created the club used your names and then cashed in. Once it got sold off and passed around billionaires, you should have left (as quite a few did). There’s lots of new Groucho-style clubs in London now. But then you’re probably too old to be accepted by them as a member.

  9. But, to be fair, I suppose Keith Allen doing coke in the toilets in the ’80s just is way more cool than some banker doing it now.

  10. SMFS: Arse over elbow.

    The meddling of the scummy and arrogant state has created the gangs and the South American mayhem. As far as I am concerned those who want cocaine are welcome.

    But for scummy tin gods who think that they own everybody else people who want the stuff could buy it at the chemists.

  11. Bloke in Costa Rica

    The reason you shouldn’t do coke is because it turns you into a cunt, not because it’s illegal.

    Mr Ecks – “Arse over elbow. The meddling of the scummy and arrogant state has created the gangs and the South American mayhem. As far as I am concerned those who want cocaine are welcome.”

    Not ar$e over anything. Whether or not coke should be legal, at the moment it is not. At the moment buying it means giving money to people like the FARC. There is no Fair Trade cocaine.

    Therefore decent people do not do it. Whether or not they should be allowed to buy it in Boots.

    Also, of course, the way the laws are going, if a club is found to tolerate cocaine use they will likely have their assets confiscated. Not in the UK yet, but in the US they may have a problem which means we will be doing it soon.
