Hope the victim of this cowardly crime recovers soon and that the lowlife scum who attacked him are swiftly apprehended and dealt with by the full force of the law.

Perhaps the government could impose a £20 tax on every hoodie that is sold. They seem to tax everything else that they think might harm us.
