Alexander seeks planetary advice from Nandor

United Future law and order spokesman, Marc Alexander, is seeking information from the Green MP, Nandor Tanczos, as to what planet he hails from, following the latest advice from Mr Tanczos to the police concerning their anti-cannabis operations.

“Mr Tanczos is apparently upset that the police, by spraying illegal cannabis crops, may be harming the health of dope-smokers.

“As Mr Tanczos is the Green Party’s law and order/justice spokesman, I naturally expected him to urge the dope-smokers to give up their criminal ways and avoid any health risks, either from the dope or from the spray and advocate due respect for the law.

“But no! In logic from planet Loopy, Mr Tanczos is calling on the cops to reveal what’s in their spray so his dope-smoking mates can stay healthy.

“This demand for the police to speak up is in marked contrast to the occasion when the police, seeking information from Mr Tanczos about his own illegal dope-smoking and the source of his supply, were met with a cowardly silence.

“If the Green Party has any ambition to be taken seriously, it should advise Mr Tanczos his pro-drug, anti-police policies are incompatible with his responsibilities as an MP, particularly since he pretends to be the spokesperson on law and order. He should resign from Parliament immediately,” said Mr Alexander.
