I see what you mean and I would support the idea of rehabilitating certain addicts instead of imprisoning them. But with repeat offenders for who rehab in the community simply isnt working then it should be forced and the best way to do that would be prison. Perhaps a different type of soft prison where only addicts would go could be created to prevent them being forced to mix with other criminals. Also if drugs are legalised then there would be no way to prosecute dealers and I see no reason why they should remain free.(Original post by CandyFlipper)
And then you go and spoil it all, by saying something stupid like a socialist would say (but related to the economy instead.)
I simply can't support a party where many of the voters, and probably candidates, think like this. Though your immigration point was actually quite decent and I don't mind that so much. I don't think it's the role of the state to put poor people into prison "to save them", actually.
I'm sure the liberal democrats realise this, on closer inspection of certain high up members histories - they just can't say it outright now.
What do you think of UKIP? Watch

I don't think of them, unless I can help it.
