The PR world of The Boy

What did they make of it? … "I thought it was shit and he's a knobhead", said one as they lit their roll-up cigarettes in the sunshine. "I don't have a dad and I've never been arrested".

The lad with the woolly hat, kicked out of sixth-form college, wants to join the army ("since I was four years old"), but knows it also faces cuts.
