About three months after the "hoodie" moral panic that didn't quite sweep the nation, Lady Sovereign (ring) is jumping on the bandwagon. She's, erm, launched a "save the hoodie" petition - not, to be honest, that we've noticed their numbers declining in the wild - and issued a statement on this most pressing of matters:

"If someone commits a crime it's not about what they are wearing, it's about the person wearing it. A criminal is a criminal no matter what they wear. Don't blame the innocent hoodie, you should be able to wear what you want!"

She's drawn support from the National Society Of Men Wearing Stripey Jumpers, Masks And Carrying Bags With Swag On Them, whose chairman A. Chummy said "Yes, we support her ideas, and are keen for her to be out campaigning. Especially if she leaves the little window in the bathroom by the drainpipe open while she's out doing it..."

"National Society Of Men Wearing Stripey Jumpers"

Which leads to another question - when do Franz Ferdinand actually wash their Dennis The Menace tops, seeing as how they seem to be in them all the time at the moment?

I suspect, rather like Andy Kershaw and Micky Rourke in 9 1/2 Weeks, they have a massive wardrobe, comprising of several versions of the same clothes.
