Breaking the cycle

Heartening news from Ireland, whose chief of National Drugs Strategy Aodhán Ó Ríordáin has announced that the personal consumption of a number of drugs including heroin, cocaine and cannabis is to be decriminalised. He described the move as signifying a "radical cultural shift" - one that is necessary and welcome, and yet totally at odds with the Tories' proposed Psychoactive Substances Bill.

Given such an enlightened stance on drugs, however, it beggars belief that abortion remains illegal in Ireland. Surely that has to change soon.
