I have just returned from the Reading Rock Festival, hence the failure to post yesterday. There are a lot of stalls around the main field selling anything from fast food to body jewellery. A lot of vendors were peddling T-shirts containing a large range of slogans, mostly relating to the various groups who were playing over the weekend. One of them, however, simply said "A.S.B.O." It seems that youth culture has caught up with the Government's main weapon against anti-social behaviour and has incorporated it into their own mythology.
I can never quite take the phrase "anti-social behaviour" seriously because I first heard it at the age of twelve, used by a teacher in reference to a boy who had farted in class.Post a Comment
