Mr Cameron and hoodies

close

Warning: This post was published more than 10 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Archbishop John SentamuTomorrow, David Cameron is to make a speech defending the hoodie (hoody? What is the singular?) wearing ‘yoofs’ of today. I guess I’m probably one of them, given that I own two hoodies, though with both of mine being emblazed with university insignias, I’m not sure they’re quite the ones Mr Cameron is complaining about.

But really, this post is an appeal. Please can Mr Cameron follow the lead of Archbishop John Sentamu, and give the speech whilst wearing a hoodie? Tomorrow’s my first weekday off in some considerable time, I have exams coming up, and I need a good laugh. Please, Dave, just for me?
