A man accustomed to chucking on the odd Hoodie – Green MP Nandor Tanczos

*****


Beloved by scallywags the world over since the time of Robin Hood (also known as 'The Hooded One' according to spooky pop group Clannad) the humble Hoodie graced many a parliamentarian this lunch hour. This show of black brush-cottoned solidarity was organised to show that when worn by middle aged MPs the Hoodie loses its stigma. However it was noted by Scoop that none of the MPs demystifying the Hoodie were draped in gang colours, playing Grand Theft Auto while listening to Tupac and drinking gin'n'juice at the time of the photo session.
