pearly kings and queens - The W1nners' Club

 

Everybody knows there are no jobs up north. Britain’s once all-powerful manufacturing industries that coughed out smog onto blackened buildings are a thing of the past. True, places like Manchester and Leeds are doing okay, but the real cash is still to be made by putting your handkerchief on a stick and venturing down to that there London.

If you are looking to relocate to the capital, you’ll need more than your passport to make it in the rat race. If you can get a firm grip of the local lingo, you’ll feel at home in any job bar the fact that your office will be full of Cockneys and people from other countries.

We have therefore put together The W1nners’ Club Office Cockney Rhyming Slang Dictionary to help you fit in with the local population as you attempt to assimilate. Maybe you could have a few Britney Spears to celebrate when you can recite this list from back to front?

Good Luck!
