Shambolic rock god Pete Doherty has invoked the vampyric wrath of Tory leader Michael Howard.
Howard said: "Here you have a man who takes drugs and gets locked up - yet ends up on the front pages."
Er, yes, Howie, that's how newspapers work.
Maybe the Conservative leader should cast his mind back to his stint as home secretary when he released a chap called John Haase onto the streets.
Haase was a well known drug pusher who was let out of jail a paltry ten months into an 18 year sentence. The dealer would have been delighted to rejoin his notorious gang which included Paul Bennett, also released by Howard, and speed dealer Simon Bakerman.
Bakerman's cousin is thought to have had a lot to do with Haase's release. Step forward notorious drug runner, er, MP Michael Howard.
Do I get a job on the Eye now?
