With the news that Scotland Yard has just been sold to a bunch of Arabs from Abu Dhabi, who intend to turn it into outrageously priced apartments, which will then be sold to other Arabs from Abu Dhabi, it’s official, everything has been sold, there’s fuck all left. If you want to buy something within commuting distance, you’ll have to settle for Stonehenge. Just think, the home of Inspector Lestrade and “Slipper of the Yard,” will now have camels parked outside. My fondest memory of “Slipper” was when he went to Brazil in his doomed attempt to nick Great Train Robbery escapee, “Biggsy.” He showed up at police headquarters in Rio and was astounded to find that… “Not one of the buggers could speak a word of English.” In fact, just like London now!
And the Meter Maids don't wear Burkas!
