The Thug Community has filed a complaint with the press commission, after being constantly portrayed in the media as violent drunks.
A study of court reports revealed that the majority of violent booze fuelled incidents turn out to be committed by nice people, who've had too much to drink and were acting totally out of character, said a spokesman for the Thugs. But the media invariably attributes any kick ins, bottling and group violence to be the work of Thugs.
'We're victims of our own success,' said Derek Windley, spokesman for the Thug Community. 'The word Thug makes an easy headline. With just four characters, it fits into any space. It's got a pleasing, resonance to it. And it scans a lot better than Group of Ordinary Lads Who've Had The Worst Brought out of Them by Drink and Circumstance.'
Many thugs do a lot of necessary jobs in the community, Windley pointed out. Wheel-clampers for example, are at the forefront of the war on the motorists' carbon footprint. Most night-clubbers and high street drinkers owe their health and safety to the Thug who stands at the door, he argued. And Thugs help keep people off the streets at night and away from potential trouble.
"And yet, and yet, the media keeps concentrating on this negative stereotype,' said Windley, 'no wonder we occasionally react. If you were treated like this, you'd soon resort to thumping night queuers, wheelclamping their cars and putting bangers in a cat's arse. Society is to blame.'
