Yesterday Crispin Blunt outed himself as a popper user as he voiced opposition to the government’s proposals to ban the legal drug as part of the psychoactive substances bill. While the ban went ahead regardless, Blunt did at least appear to inspire Michael Fabricant to give an equally candid confession, as well as leading Keith Vaz to concede that poppers are ‘beneficial in enabling anal sex’.
Now even members of the Mainstream Media are speaking out in solidarity with Crispin. The Daily Mail‘s Quentin Letts has taken to Twitter to reveal his own experience with poppers. Letts says that he inhaled a ‘popper’ at a summer party many years ago. Alas the substance took him by surprise and he fell — fully clothed — into a swimming pool:
Decades ago I inhaled a 'popper' at a summer party. It took me by such surprise that I fell, fully clothed, into my host's swimming pool.

Mr S will be keeping readers updated with more popper confessions as the day goes on.
