Mr Cameron and hoodies

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 11 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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?
