Hello, me old China
Welcome .... " me old China " is Cockney rhyming slang for China Plate... mate..
An English dialect once limited to those who were born in earshot of Bow church Bells in East London... now merged with a strange and somewhat incomprehensible dialect named "estree" common in Essex !
i guess you nephew living in Shenzhen, the same city with me, Shenzhen is north of HongKong.Hi Chinabee, fantastic looking comb honey. Thanks for the photos. I've a nephew living in China, in (pronounced) Shenshen, next to Hong Kong. Guess thats a very long way from you?
The church is St Mary-le-Bow and it is in central London, Cheapside not the "east end".Well, as an East Londoner and born central London (mind it would have to be a calm night with a strong southerly wind for me to be born in earshot of Bow bells which were long gone when i was born), I feel perfectly at ease using elements of it.
You can have mine if you like - I've had a gutsful as soon as I can find something decent I'm off. fed up of being treated like dirt by a department which is only interested in hitting targets and not combating crime and being slated off by members of the public who haven't a clue what most of us really do (and it's not stamping passports!)I thought Ill give it a go to see what it feels like, you never know someone could offer me a job one day ll
make the most of the slick operation you're getting at the moment - they want to lay off another 20% next year. At the moment I'm working on average three wees a year for nothing - a statutury lunch break (which we don't get paid for but is factored into our working day) is 1 hour I'm lucky to get 20 minutes if its my watch on.Try Heathrow or Gatwick, looks like we need some more to cover the ones on lunch-break! But then again it takes a certain kind........
