Cannabis smoker Junior Tranter has told a judge he will endeavour to come off the drug he has been taking since he was 14.That's a nice word, isn't it - 'endeavour'. It means 'try'.
Are we sure he'll try? Is the judge? I mean, surely not?
Judge Jamie Tabor QC said...Oh. Well. That says it all.
...before he sentenced him: "I want an assurance from you. There is no point me suspending your sentence if you are going to go straight back out and smoke cannabis because you will fail and you will just put off the evil day you end up in custody."
Tranter replied: "I definitely am willing to try, for sure."*sigh* He isn't even promising to try, he's just saying he's willing to!
