Showbiz reporter Dan Wootton forgot to see any films at Cannes due to spending his time ligging as much booze and drugs at parties as he can. So he came up with this

Quote:
CANNES OF COKE Grubby side of Cannes Film Festival exposed after we find cocaine at six top showbiz locations as drug use gets ‘out of control’

THE CANNES Film Festival is not all glamour, red carpets, champagne, yachts and movie releases.

It has a much grubbier side — and one you won’t see on attention-seeking social media postings of its high-profile visitors.

Twelve months after I exposed a number of A- listers for attending premieres with no intention of seeing the movies, and inspired by France’s most famous sleuth, Inspector Clouseau, I can now reveal the festival, which runs until Sunday, is a hotbed of cocaine use.

I sent my reporter BENJY POTTER to ten of the town’s top showbiz venues and found evidence of the drug at six of them — including the pop-up bar owned by CHERYL’s ex-husband JEAN-BERNARD FERNANDEZ-VERSINI.

That’s not a statistic which tour operators will be using in next year’s brochure.

A security source said: "The drug’s use has got out of control in Cannes."

I'm genuinely a little surprised and pleased Yes Minister was broadcast in Japan(?)

It was a big export. Political shenanigans are highly translatable. Popular in some Arab countries as well.

Massive in India and Pakistan. You get bureaucracy everywhere, there's no nudity or much swearing, and apparently the verbose scripts converted very easily to Urdu and Hindi.

But where did they find the breaks for the musical interludes?

I am hearing now that the Scum is getting a lot of stick for its "Blood on his hands" shit about Corbyn yesterday. The feeling in Manchester is that its using the attack to score political points and that a boycott of the filthy rag might get off the ground there

Someone on my facebook feed, the source was the Canary, so it might be bollocks. I would like to see it get traction though

The Sun, along with others of its ilk, have demanded we Do Something.

They've laid out their plans and like all the others they don't really know what that 'something' is. A lot of tough talking and cliches but it's basically a rant about Faceook.


THE SUN SAYS It’s not enough to trust unity and love to prevail — it’s time to take practical action to stop terrorism


Quote:
OUR hearts go out to the victims of the Manchester atrocity, their friends and families. But it is not enough simply to mourn.

Nor merely to stand together and trust unity, diversity and love to prevail.

What do we do, practically, to stop our kids being massacred at pop concerts?

Some want all Isis suspects or sympathisers we know about “interned”, locked up without trial.

The Sun cannot justify that. It throws fuel on the fire.

But action must now be taken.

Countless plots have been foiled by the peerless work of GCHQ and MI5.

They were never going to stop them all, but we must give them more tools to try.

Hundreds of Isis-trained terrorists are said to be on our streets and known to the intelligence community.

No expense must be spared to provide the extra manpower and resources to watch many more as closely as we can.

Next, the social media giants must be forced to wake up to their global responsibilities. They can no longer give terrorists a safe space to plot slaughter.

They MUST give our spooks access to encrypted messages and remove the extremist propaganda turning young hotheads into mass killers.

We firmly back the Tory plan to force their hand with new Technical Capability Notices.

The right of our children to live without fear of slaughter over-rides the hand-wringing privacy anxieties of Californian tech giants.

Meanwhile it is crucial to cut out Islamist ideology at its root.

Efforts to combat extremism in Muslim communities must be stepped up and better funded.

Donald Trump was right to call Isis “losers”.

They are dupes, wasting their lives and snuffing out others in the absurd belief Allah wants it that way.

Ultimately these servants of evil can inflict death and suffering and temporarily terrorise but they cannot defeat us.

We are vastly stronger — and, as Theresa May said in her perfectly judged response: “Our values, our country and our way of life will always prevail.”

That strength is never more obvious than in adversity, as Manchester admirably showed.

The magnificent courage and dedication of the emergency services.

The generosity of strangers giving comfort, shelter and blood to survivors.

But we will also say this.

The election in two weeks is fundamental to our liberal democracy.

It is of course right to grieve for the dead, but the campaign must not be postponed for days on end.

It would admit to the terrorists that they CAN knock Britain off its stride.

We must not give them the satisfaction.

Sorry but why are we so keen to defend Facebook again?

It's not about 'defending Facebook'. Seriously, did you have vodka on your Cheerios this morning? You're acting awfully strange.
