Police chief clamps down on dinner party cocaine

PUBLISHED February 2, 2005

Scotland Yard's new chief is launching a drive against middle-class drug users who think it is now socially acceptable to take cocaine at a dinner party or a club.

Sir Ian Blair, speaking on his first day as Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said that his officers would make an example of cocaine users to enforce the message that no one and nowhere is beyond the law.
