Villager Sean Pavey was shunned by his drinking buddies last night after admitting that he didn’t think the Kray twins were brilliant.
“Everyone was going on about how awesome they were, proper old school and that,” Sean, 26, a mechanic at Pavey’s Auto-Spares told us. “All my mates were saying how cool the suits were and that what they did was top bants. Then I said but they were just two blokes who killed people and hurt a load more and everyone went quiet and said I was ruining it.”
“Sean’s completely wrong,” said his friend support worker Mark Keen, 28. “Those sixties criminals were the dog’s bollocks. That Charles Manson, he was always one of the lads down the pub, bought his round, then got his followers to murder you. Just one of the lads, really.”
“My favourite’s Reggie ‘n’ Ronnie. Total legends. Their ‘Four candles’ sketch was the best one, although I never liked the bit where the little one would sit in the armchair, tell rambling jokes, and kneecap people.”
