Radio 1 DJ Kevin Greening. Man arrested after drugs find

#1
A chap has been arrested & bailed after class A substances were found at Greening's scene of death.

If Greening did die of drugs then crack open the champagne and bail his dealer to give some to Pete Doherty. Would like to see him Potato Bread by Easter. Doherty is another waste of a skin.

I have nil sympathy for celebs or any folk who take drugs. Every death is a result, hope it will encourage others to quit or not to try drugs.

There will be millions tonight overdosing from one of the most dangerous drugs of them all - alcohol. I wonder how many deaths there will be.

Legion_n_aire, "one of the most dangerous drugs of them all "? I would pleased to see your documentary evidence. How inconvenient it must be that alcohol has ben part of the glue of our National fabric for over 2,000 years. Funny how it tends to be more adhesive than corrosive in our unworthy lives (p**s head nutters aside).

I have to agree with P O L. It keeps my fabric together in this world when, as the Viet book says 'Heaven and Earth Changed Places'.
However, 58 seems a good hearted chap. I hope he lives in N Surrey.

I love it when that one gets banded about. How often do you hear of a Teenager getting poisoned from a single bottle of dodgy beer.

Although having said that i think if you are over the age of 15 and die of anything to do with drugs you deserve everything you get for being a knob head.

Oh there will be loads of kids pitching up at A&E with cannabis poisoning, (more likely the nearest fast food/ garage for munchie quelling) :D

Sorry for being old fashioned (come from an old school Tory background, my mom is still a Thatcherite councillor living in Yorkshire). I would like to see compulsory drug & alcohol testing at A&E. If any traces of any Class A, B or C or drink are found then you are would get a referal to get help it would also go onto the national police computer and CRB checks.

Habitual users would be caught out and by cross referencing this could be a major form of HumInt in the campaign against drugs.

I would like to see compulsory / random drug & drink testing by major employers as happens in the US with multinationals & major firms.

A mate of mine is just left Chevron shipping after 14yrs to move sideways to BP as a Chief Engineer. They frequently would arrive in a port and the whole crew would be tested.

Any traces and it was goodnight Irene.

If you want to sail with Chevron shipping then you agree to random drug & drink testing. A big LNG ship would have a $50 Mill Cargo and they don't want unstable idiots of any rank on the ships company.

Wish it was part of the recruitment process for every FTSE100 listed company in the UK.

Alcohol is actually the only drug that, once addicted, you can die from the withdrawal symptoms. You can google that up to verify. I guess I could look for some stats on alc vs other drugs in terms of deaths etc. Unfortunately because it is a legal drug a heroin addict has far more chance of being helped by the state than an alcoholic even though far more deaths occur each year from alcoholism.

Wogan can't die he's immortal and besides with about 25 years of recordings they can always do what the BBC does best and repeat the lot.

Well here is one link I found, a bit old but you could look for others and no doubt the trend is the same. Note how tobacco beats them all hands down. As you see, and we are talking 10 years ago, but deaths related to heroin - 200 as against over 4000 for alcohol and this was before the relaxed rules were introduced.

Greening was Zowie Balls sidekick on Radio 1 about circa 2000ish.

Just found out he was also an esteemed member of the homosexual community.

Terrible shame to loose a member of the Gay community & a druggie in a single incident.

RIP

Mr Greening’s family said the acclaimed DJ, 44, who presented the flagship Radio 1 breakfast show with Zoe Ball from 1997 to 1998, had died “peacefully in his sleep”.

Pity it wasn't drowning in the swimming pool that could have bben fun for the conspiracy theorists

Well I'm from the new school, that prohibition doesn’t work and never will, alcohol is legal, drugs* are not, and both are freely available. I would not work for a company (as general staff), that held CDT; this is nannying and state interference pushing its unwanted nose in.

*Drugs - so what do you count as this remit, heroin, speed, coke, yes without a doubt, but painkillers, anti-depressants, sleeping pills? They are all additive and can affect personal performance. Alcohol though seems to be unique in that we accept night on the p1ss, goodnights sleep, bacon and eggs, and if you pass a breathalyser test, no problem you’re on your way.
So someone who occasionally takes a pill/line of coke/ smokes a spliff, shows up on CDT and their a druggie, out on your ear?

Why couldn't a few of the 70's Radio 1 DJs have ODed?
Blackburn, Dave Lee Travis and Noel Edmunds for starters.
