Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There's a strange blasted heath of non-think that the Daily Mail and other papers, and apparently also people like Tony Blair, inhabit. It's a surreal place where making someone wear something different prevents crime and makes society a friendlier more caring place.

One of my favourite scenes from Bowling for Columbine is where Michael Moore frames a PR geek for the local military plant in front of a half-finished nuclear missile and asks 'So what is it do you think that makes teens feel violent?'

And the PR geek - all adult concern and thoughtfulness - says 'Um - well - I don't think anyone knows.'

So hoodies - not so much the real problem, perhaps.
