I came out of Pizza Hut the other night about 10:30pm, there was the girl walking down the side of the dual carriageway on her own. She must have been, what 17 at the very most. She may has well have had a sign across her chest saying “Attack Me”. Then they moan when someone does attack them. I mean don’t they read the papers? Don’t they know that we (Muggers) Work?
