Your views are contradictory.

On the one hand you want parliament to "catch up with the public opinion and science on reform of drugs laws" and "the public's opposition to...our presence in Afghanistan" and the other you think that the public's demand for tougher prison sentences for rioters is media-inflamed populism that will "look silly in 6 months time"

It seems you like to invoke public opinion when you agree with it and ridicule the very notion of its validity when you don't.

You can't have it both ways.
