"I come at this from a different perspective", is invariably the klaxon sounding that a phone-in caller is about to scrape the bottom of the stupid barrel and, so it seems in 2019, quite possibly take over one of the great offices of state.

Ms Patel makes all clear. Or tells nasty lies...

In her first interview as home secretary, she laid her vision for fighting crime in the UK and said she wants criminals to “feel terror” at the thought of offending.

Patel also voiced a tough stance on drugs, saying cannabis users should not be overlooked by police, the Press Association reports.

“Any form of drug use,” she said. “You don’t turn a blind eye to it at all. It has a corrosive impact on people and communities.”

The Lib Dems accused Patel of “rank hypocrisy” over the zero-tolerance approach, considering the series of admissions from senior Tory colleagues.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson promoted Gove to the cabinet after he was forced to admit using cocaine 20 years ago during social events.

Dominic Raab was made Foreign Secretary and Andrea Leadsom Business Secretary after saying they had used cannabis as students.

Liberal Democrat MP Christine Jardine, who has worked for access to medicinal cannabis, called for a “pragmatic, evidence-based approach” to drugs.

“It’s rank hypocrisy for the Home Secretary to take such an archaic approach on cannabis given the recent admissions from members of the cabinet she sits around,” she said.

“The war on drugs has been an unmitigated failure. In reality, by decriminalising cannabis we can remove it from the criminal market and protect vulnerable young people.”

Priti's hit the ground running by getting tough on drug users. She hasn't quite got the hang of Essex Conservatism. Jail cells are for nonces and illegal immigrants not hard working people having a bit of sniff and a smoke on a Friday night.
Will that include Michael Gove and Rory Stewart?
Thought not, just the wrong-uns.

Glorified armed security guards and gated communities. Shoot the scum if they try to break in. That's the end goal of their policing plan.
