Me Old China Plate

Springing into action just in time for the clocks going forward, this fella has cast off his wintery cockney cobwebs. He’s not a real cockney though, more a cockney-come-lately. He’s seen too many Danny Dyer films and suffered East London overload. So much so that he gets his rhyming slang all wrong. “I’m going up the apples and stairs” he’ll say before adding “Would you Adam and Believe it”. When he tells everyone his YMC sweat looks like an old china plate, nobody knows if he’s being serious.
