HUG a Hoodie
But this time I bring sympathy and empathy.
I have many photos of me taken at famous places (e.g. Alhambra in Granada, Leaning tower of Pisa ..) where a passer by has completely stolen the show with a gleaming smile or long sexy legs. If I scanned and cropped I’d lose the lean or the Generalife.
Of course in Dave’s case the press weren’t inclined to ‘crop’. That girl is a real scene-stealer. I’m sure Dave would rather give her a hug than Ryan from Wythenshawe.
Now let’s be clear - Ryan did not aim a gun at Dave. He aimed his finger at Dave. After lengthy interrogation the police obtained a warrant, raided Ryan’s house and found ‘a small amount of cannabis’. Shock Horror!
I have taught lots of great young people from Wythenshawe - the massive, sprawling council estate built in the fifties and sixties.
Caroline Aherne based the Royle family there.
It’s not a bad place - but there’s absolutely nowt to do.
I imagine there’s plenty to do at Eton and Oxford, what with all the boating and debating.
But Dave still felt the need of a few spliffs.
Double standards or what?
