Cups of tea
Smashed up telephone box's
The smell of piss in shop doorways
complaining about the weather
Fat men with beards who drink bitter
Tossers in tracksuits
People who cant afford lots of gold wearing lots of gold

8 year old smokers
Fake Burberry caps
Chinese DVD sellers
Dodgy goat and dodgy chicken for sale in butchers
