The armed wing of the fashion police

fashion-failIf you turn up to London Fashion Week wearing socks and sandals, you’ll be arrested by the fashion police. If you pop into Worcester’s Brewers Arms pub wearing an‘offensive t-shirt’, you’ll be arrested by the West Mercia Police.

This is what happened to Paul Grange, who decided to pop in for a pint over the bank holiday weekend wearing a t-shirt bearing the slogan, ‘Hillsborough. God’s way of helping Rentokil’ – an unsubtle jibe at the 96 football fans who died at Hillsborough football stadium in 1989. An offended member of the public tweeted a photo of the t-shirt, and Grange was later charged with ‘displaying abusive writing’ by the police.
