FOCUS: THE NEW DECADENCE: Rock & Roll: All the best stars are a mess

Pete Doherty is a mess, or a genius, or both. The singer is also now a star thanks to his affair with Kate Moss. Is it hype, or is he the latest in a proud line of rock rebels? And why do we still need them so?

Leading Article: This foolish hard line on drugs

THE DEBATE about drugs was rekindled this week. Sir Ian Blair, the new Metropolitan Police Commissioner, set the tone on Tuesday with some ill-judged remarks about cocaine.
