Bohemian drug addict and part-time tramp Pete Doherty has joined the SDLP in Newry we can reveal.
The Libertines and Babyshambles front man has been a keen supporter of the SDLP and is a close friend of Gillian Fitzpatrick.
On his official website Doherty wrote:
“Just been co-opted onto the Newry, Mourne & Down District Council for the SDLP. I hope to work hard for the Newry people and would like to thank my friend Gillian for making this possible. Xoxo.”
But there has been some angry voices coming from Newry over Doherty’s inclusion on the Council with one Newry resident saying:
“This is terrible news for Newry. With Pete Doherty in the area the price for cocaine and decent heroin is going to sky-rocket. Fuck this shit, Thanks SDLP!”
