Are there less of these characters about now London's been gentrified?
YES. i saw them at the cashiers in sainsburys in camden ooh 27 years ago (is that actually possible? you're going to tell me they weren't born yet). never forgot.Does anybody know The Twins, the two Nigerian dandys from Islington who have cut-glass accents and swan around in orange overalls? They used to routinely come and visit me in Foyles.
Ishmahil Blagrove was the star at SC (retired now), but there was also The Master and Diane the WI Nazi.
