Guys and girls i have to share this one with you.
I am not a violent man, but coming from the east end of london..i..well..have been about a bit !! Last night i went to see an old friend you runs a drinking house in north London and he IS "old school" east end. He is near 65 but as hard as nails and hails from millwall bermondsey. one of the loveliest guys you would ever want to meet, one of the worst you would ever want to cross.
Anyway, many years ago there was a death in one of the "firms", and being well "connected" he had to go to the funeral. So he, his brother and a few others bought the standard over the top wreath, duly dressed in their dark suits hats etc and made there way to the church
On arrival they were a bit taken aback by the lack of police, considering the level of the guy that was being buried and the consequent abundance of heavy duty "characters" attending there should have been at least a helicopter, several armed police and many police spotters recording the toings and goings. But no, nada, no one. So they made there way to the church and entered, as soon as they got through the doors they closed behind them and the priest began his thing
Dearly beloved we are gathered here..etc etc.. My friends, all built like brick shithouses, dressed appropriately for an London gangster funeral, looked at each other with eyebrows raised
Dearly beloveds etc etc, we are here to pay our last respects to sweet Alice Frazser who sadly passed away..etc etc etc
Well buy this time the whole church has turned around to look at the gangsters at the back and we can only assume that the question that spread was along the lines of " wooah...what was sweet aunty Alice keeping from us !!"
True to form, as good London boys our lads played it out with due respect, even going so far as to lay this massive overthetop wreath on the grave
As soon as possible, they politely made there way from the main burial scene as soon as the got a fair distance the cry went up "LEG IT"
As you can guess that night they got harassed for not being at "the" funeral which was in a different church, some several miles away
To this day I am sure Aunty Alice's' descendant talk in hushed tones abut her and the London "gangsters"
