Hmmmm....  Footballers you say??  That's preposterous!  :D

Wow, that was about as disjointed as supermarket chicken.

I still can't make out if the article was about
  - Ukad's failure to enforce medical licencing, which isn't in their remit anyway
  - Culture secretaries building a name for themselves by exploiting some vague public outrage to talk of launching  independent investigations into doping (why is that Culture's job again?)
  - The hypothetical lack of legal tools to prosecute doping doctors, in which case shouldn't there be an investigation into the actual formation of Ukad and what powers they were expected to exercise?

  - Updating a vague sense of public outrage to keep the pot on some sort of boil.

Think the full title is Culture , media & sport. Never mind the football - cricketers doing more than nose candy and weed is is the decline of civilisation unless we're talking KP.

Well, in typical Guardian fashion, they're trying to raise moral outrage about something.  And the "evidence" is pretty flimsy at best..not sure what UKAD could do with a secretly recorded video quite frankly.  I suppose, if it turns out true, it will shake British sport in the same way the Russian "anti-doping" scandal is.  If the names Wiggins or Froome come out it could be ugly.  They've used a lot of petrol driving the bus over Lance..repeatedly.. :D

Sometimes entertainers use enhancements, to further their careers.
If your not buying, what they're selling, what's it mada to U?
