Whitney Who?

Posted in The Job - Comment by 200

Apparently another multi-millionaire died last night.

I’m a regular viewer of the late night BBC News channel. I have to say after about 15 minutes of gushing drivel about one of society’s richest most privileged people croaking, probably due in no small part to her inability to control her own life, I had to turn the TV off.

With so much money and access to almost anything they might ever want, it’s funny how they so often turn to drink and drugs.

These people are of no importance.

Important people dying do so in such places as Afghanistan and Iraq, earn less than £35,000 and are only known to their mates, colleagues and families. You’ll read a few paragraphs about them if you read anything at all.

Meanwhile the papers and TV reports are full of gushing shite.

    Yep, another overpaid, underworked prima donna bites the dust and the ‘lovies’get upset. Where’s the moaning, wailing and gnashing of teeth when a C17 comes back to Brize with it’s precious cargo. Puke making!

  3. what are you talking about mate says:

    pretty idiotic statements buddy…so she was successful. she didn’t get that fame and money for nothing. the woman worked VERY hard for that. but you wouldn’t know that being the lowly pedestrian that you are. pop singers work extremely hard to get where they get. just because you don’t see that doesn’t mean its not happening. the only thing gushing my friend is the excrement from your mouth :) yes she ended up on drugs…not exactly a walk in the park.. more like a crawl through hell so if you haven’t got anything positive to say just…shhhhhhh

    all that being said….have a nice day :)

    I actually liked her in “The Bodyguard” and liked some of her songs.
    Still, as you say, she was a drug-sotted parasite.

    And as for the sack of shit in the previous post – Take a trip down to Wootton Basset next time a transport of deceased soldiers is due and take a look at the coffins of those who did actually work – and die – for something…..

    I know I shouldnt feed the trolls, but….

    oh dont tell me your one of these people that compare one persons death to other shit that goes on in the world. your an idiot!! grow up buddy

    As a matter of fact, yes.
    I certainly compare the death of a worthless druggie parasite against the death of a soldier doing something worthwhile – as would anyone who has ever done anything worthwhile in their life.

    ‘what are you talking about mate’ – entertaining people for squillions of pounds is not ‘hard work’.

    Dodging bullets in Afghanistan for £20,000 a year is hard work, mopping up people’s shit for £15,000 a year in a hospital or old folks home is hard work. Facing knife-wielding druggies – who incidentally get their stuff from the same people Whitney Cokehead got her stuff, and keeping them in business to spread their misery – on £29 grand a year is hard work.

    So ‘buddy’ go blow it out your arse!

    Those in afghanistan arent heroes. What makes them a hero any more than Whitney Houston. Killing foreigners? And dont bring up the old s@&te about 9/11.
    Get real. Whitney bought joy to peoples lifes with her singing. She killed herself with drugs did she? Like heroin? From Afghanistan, where are boys are doing a sterling job protecting the poppy fields.
    And thats a fact. Our boys protect the Heroin industry in Afghanistan. Supposedly its something about winning hearts and minds.
    Your heroes are they? The guards to the Afghanistan Heroin industry.

    Dr dan,

    get real???

    You’re having a giraffe my friend, if it wasn’t for the likes of Houston, there wouldn’t be any need for poppy fields in Afghanistan. If you want to worship the likes of her, that’s your choice, don’t expect any sympathy from round these parts.

  13. Dr dan says:

    I wouldnt expect much sympathy. Neither would i expect much insight either. Plod is paid to uphold the law, not question it. Soldiers are paid to follow orders not question them. Heroin users just pay.

    Heroin is pretty safe really. Dont overdose, dont use dirty stuff and you can expect to die from other causes. Dont believe me? Why else do we use it (morphine) in hospitals every day.

    When the Taliban were in charge (barbarians to the last of them) 5% of our heroin came from Aghanistan, now we’re in charge 95% of our stuff comes from the Helmund province alone ( source: sunday times)

    Drug users are patients not criminals. They are self medicating just like you are when you need a fag/coffee/ drink.

    I wouldnt expect a Police Constable to have an enlightened attitude towards drugs. The irony is that the system you uphold is run by people who profit from the high prices created by the illegality.

    Dont believe me?

    Start with The Opium Wars between China and Britain, work your way through the Golden triangle (always a pleasure) and Cia importation of drugs with dead soldiers in Nam, Iran-Contra, CIA and the Crack epidemic and then, oh, Afghanistan and our “liberal” approach to drug production

    That should get you thinking about what is Black and what is White.

    Shame we cant post emoticoms. I have a good one of rolling on the ground laughing helplessly.

    Dr Dan should be concentrating on his school homework instead of trolling on the internet

    I never met her. Very good singer by all accounts, one of the best. She was good in The Bodyguard. I don`t mind her being successful and making millions of dollars (footballers on the other hand, eh 200?).

    The downfall of someone talented and loved by millions around the world is just tragic.

    I don`t have any interest in drugs, and my town is a rehab hotspot, the effects are tragic in another way but not one that creates a lot of sympathy. If you make the daft decision to try hard drugs you go from dopey cnut to so-called ‘victim’ in a very short space of time.

    Just say no kids.

    Oi! Whats so funny?

    The opium wars? Dirty heroin on the streets coming from Helmund province? The CIA smuggling cocaine to fund terrorists?

    Or do you just fid it funny because you’ve never heard of these things, and in your tiny little mind its better to laugh than be a bit scared.

    Oi, I’ve got news for you. Everything in that post is true, not funny. If you find it funny its because either you’re an emotional retard who enjoys watching people suffer, or because you’re ignorant and you’ve got a “funny” way of showing it. Ha, Ha.

  17. Oi says:

    You misunderstand me – you are funny in your attempts to belittle all those that actually work in amongst the detritus of society. You assertation that heroin is safe. Your apparant belief that police are illiterate louts.

    Goddamn it – Here I go responding to a bloody troll again!

  18. Dr dan says:

    Pure heroin is safe. It is one of the most commonly used analgesics in hospital. It is given to children and adults. It is completely eliminated fom the body. It is not carcinogenic and apart from tolerance and dependence has no long term effects.

    The problem with heroin is its criminality. This causes a number of things:

    1. Drug dealers prosper – the underworld is enriched by the war on drugs ( After 30 yrs I think its time we admit Drugs won)
    2. Street heroin is adulterated and of unknown strength. This leads to illnesses from the impurities, and the risk of accidental overdose with strong batches.
    3. Heroin users become social pariahs rather than patients with an illness. They are crimilised rather than treated. Often their behaviour becomes criminal as a result.

    I work amongst “the detritus” in Emergency. Detritus or sh@t comes from an arsehole. In this case it is societies arsehole, and the arsehole is called the “war on drugs”.

    Qui Bono? Not you, not me, not the heroin addicts, not society as far as I can tell.

    Whats the answer? Addicts should be treated as patients not criminals.

    Dr Dan,

    firstly, coming on to a police blog and attempting to belittle me and most of the other readers with patronising comments doesn’t do much to advance any argument you might have, it just makes you look like a pompous arse. (you’re not related to that other police blog troll with a medical moniker by any chance?)

    Secondly, before spouting off with your pretentious bullshit about what you think I do, know and think, you might take a little bit of time to actually find out what my views are on drugs, they are clear and have been mentioned many times within this blog, but hey, why bother to do that when you can demonstrate your clearly superior intelligence by assuming you know everything.

    thirdly, I don’t smoke, drink coffee and drink very little alcohol, so don’t compare me to the likes of Whitney coke-head Houston.

    As to heroin being safe, I completely agree, safe in the way that anything that can kill you is safe – in the right hands. There is a reason that you need a medical degree in order to administer morphine/heroin. Last time I looked they weren’t allowing the dispensing of heroin from the passenger window of a Vauxhall Corsa.

    Whether drug addicts should be treated as patients is an argument worth having, but they certainly aren’t worthy of putting on a pedestal and hero-worshipped.

    Now be a good boy, go off and do some homework.

  20. drdan says:

    Yeah, you’re right. I was being a pompous tw@t.
    Still doesnt change the fact that you’re attacking the man and not the arguments.
    More people die from aspirin each year than Heroin. Medically prescribing it would make it safer, and a lot easier for you boys to do what is an incredibly difficult job. I watch you in A&E and am in awe. Sometimes….
    Seriously though, I hope you dont take my pomposity the wrong way. I’m just being a tw@t.

    at the risk of repeating myself, go and take a look at my thoughts on drugs, my main post can be found by simply putting ‘budweiser’ into the search box, top right, you might find the first line of one of your replies was somewhat blinkered.

    When I was preparing that blog entry I found figures that suggested around 2,000 people die from aspirin overdose per year, almost exactly the same as those who die of heroin, and of course tobacco and alcohol which kill almost half a million a year, and they are completely legal.
