It's a fine line between reassuring and threatening

One that George Irvin's funfair doesn't walk entirely successfully IMHO. Does make for a very compelling tone of voice tho. Shepherds Bush Green isn't all that safe at the best of times, but when there's a fair on it, you might as well just stab yourself before you head out.
Proper cockney use of the word 'levied'

All faiths will be respected right? Or your knees will be broken due to my use of this hammer

All profits from this, once we've paid the new system, who we call Harry the Hammer

And 16 years porridge is no picnic, Sunshine. Just ask Harry

Hey Gordo,

Any chance you might elaborate a bit on all this for your overseas readers? What is George Irvin's Family Fair and why have they been forced to employ a hitman?
