Following months of media pressure and police investigations Ford yesterday admitted that he has used crack cocaine. Apparently reporters "didn’t ask the correct questions" until now.

Boris Johnson blurted out his own drug history in 2005 on Have I Got News For You, following a tiny bit of pressure from Paul Merton and Ian Hislop.
