No I meant that you looked like a criminal out of the Sweeney, and with inflation I'd ask for at least a 200er. Is that a Donkey or a pony or a ferret to the Londoners/Cockneys.😎

Is nostalgia allowed on this thread or will Clouseau be along shortly with a warning?

I have started watching reruns of The Sweeney again checking locations on the internet. People seem to be able to park anywhere. Few yellow lines. Everybody is smoking. Everbody is politically incorrect. Regan is always grumpy. Clothes are terrible.

Example - opening scene Regan in the back of a cab smoking and doing survelliance. His opening line is :-

‘How did we manage in this sceptred Isle before we started poncing off the Ayrabs?’

When the victim gets mugged Regan and Carter just take the p*ss out of him.

Speaking of MiE, I just bought a pair of these ugly MiE heavy-duty safety shoes for £15/$20.
Leather upper, leather soles, welted, and steel toecaps.

A bit clodhopper-y. Fifteen quid though.
About 25yrs ago l bought a brand new pair of brogue safety shoes with the exact same sole on them , cost £14 brand new . They were heavy per the steel toe cap and you couldn't have gone dancing in them because if you accidentally kicked someone , you would probably have broke their leg. .

Brilliant . The country has changed dramatically in the last 22 years , never mind since the Sweeney era . Different country now. .
