Make Isle of Man drugs paradise, says Jagger

Oh maaaaan

The essential guide to IT transformation

Mick Jagger reckons the UK should legalise drugs on the Isle of Man - cos that's where we test new mobile phones.

We're guessing the old scrotum-faced warbler is talking about the 3G trials a few years ago. Jagger suggested legalisation of drugs should be tested in one area first.

Talking to Larry King to punt a remastered album, he said: "In England they always try out new mobile phones in the Isle of Man. They've got a captive society. So I said, you should try - you should try the legalisation of all drugs on the Isle of Man and see what happens..."

Given the Isle of Man's well-documented love of booze (50,000 alcoholics clinging to a rock), and of course speed (the TT Races), this strategy could well end in tears.

Jagger said he still gets grief getting into the US thanks to his historic dope conviction and has to "go into a special room".
