Here’s a light-hearted story for a Friday. A 12 year old boy has launched a one-man campaign for justice by defying school uniform rules that outlawed shorts and wearing a skirt to school!
The young man borrowed his 11-year-old sister Joanna’s skirt, complaining that “I realised short skirts are allowed but shorts are not, which means there is something wrong in the rules and it should be changed. I thought I could use this silly loophole to my advantage.” We doubt that his own particular brand of political protest made him that popular with his mates, but this discussion of uniforms certainly caught the eye of the Sky News.
The sight of a line of po-faced young lads holding up banners proclaiming “Cool shorts not hot pants” and “”What’s wrong with my legs?” certainly amused us and put us in a jovial mood for the weekend, which is set to be a sunny one according to the weatherman.
Have a great bank holiday weekend, and we’ll be blogging again early next week on the topic of uniforms uk and worldwide.Google+
