Sex and Drugs

Johnson justified the reclassification of Cannabis on the basis of scientific evidence , he said . In fact the scientific evidence said the reverse so Johnson lied as well as turning the advisory body from scientists , which what they thought they were , into New Labour props for the daily game of media strategy . His distinctions between political descisions and scientific advice is answering a question no-one is asking .

Can you think of another occasion in which facts have been sexed up used for political ends but served as facts when those providing them knew differently ?
