    I understand it’d take a while, and understand anger about addicts robbing houses etc, but agree with some other posters that a zero tolerance drug policy wouldn’t work to well in this country. Be good to try something different

    Well yes but signapore isn't a free society so it's not really a like for like comparison.

    I rate Fitzgerald ahead of Hemingway but behind Faulkner.

    I saw something similar (might have been on here) about him saying that he had a fight with a traveller, hence falling asleep on the streets. His mental state doesn't seem too good at all, at the moment. It's crazy cos I always thought this sort of thing would happen to him, unfortunately!

    Think his way of dealing with this is trying to be funny, but he was like this in the past when many around him new he was out of control.

    I don’t think it’s looking good right now looking at his tweets. Maybe I’m wrong but he needs to be taking this serious and I think deep down he is crying out for help masking it in humour .

    Yeah agreed, his humour on instagram and twitter after the shocking pictures have come out tells me again he hasn’t accepted the magnitude of the situation he finds himself in. He still obviously thinks he’s just a bit skint and can continue on the sesh until he fights again and tops up his account, which is a sad situation to be in given his talent.

    Like Hearn and Steve Wood have said, Scott has to want to get help first before they can do anything with him.

    Very sad. He's obviously not wanting to make the change yet so hasn't hit his low point.

    Anthony Fowler putting on twitter he will pay for his MRIs etc.

    Hate **** like that, charity is not for publicity. If your doing like that intention is 100% questioned for me

    Fowler is a virtue signalling pr!ck. Surprised he's torn himself away from retweeting shyte about how good his CBD oil is.

    Wish Scott well but I saw him speak and he was asking for money for a MRI

    how do we know he wont be going and spending that on smack or something else

    the first thing addicts do, is get good at telling lies sadly.

    Although he does come across as a unlikable character, Fowler himself has said he was just repeating things he was told to say.

    Agree on the charity front though.

    You all know whom my allegiances are towards but Fowler deserves a break given that tweet.

    Publicly or Privately, it is a very nice gesture.

    I hate people making their charitable doings public.

    Whether I do nothing or loads, it is nothing to do with anyone else.
