So this week with Tony Blair’s full backing, Bluewater shopping centre in Kent banned shoppers from wearing hoodies and baseball caps because people find them frightening.
I wish as a society we would get to the heart of the matter, the underlying reasons behind this so called antisocial behaviour, rather than always going for soft targets, the superficial “quick-wins.”
If I was a “yoof” and heard that news I’d insist on wearing my hoody absolutely everywhere I went, just to make a point.
In fact I’ve a good mind to go out and buy a hoody so I can do exactly that.
Now, where on earth am I going to find a shop selling hoodies?
Aha! I know just the place…
