You know The Wire...

is no longer cool when the Tories start using it to score cheap political points.

On the downside: few things are more depressing that a Conservative politician trying to be fashionable. If there is one political conclusion that the Wire suggests to me it's that the "war on drugs" and ever tougher sentencing policies are a hopeless, irredeemable failure.

On the plus side: fewer articles in the Guardian banging on about the Wire.
