Here goes then matey!

Totally bangin! = Top tune - Sorted = Done or Gotcha drift or Do you need drugs? - Sarf Landaghn = The manor - Sweet = Nice or Good one - On the lash - Mullared = Getting pissed - My bitch (urban) = The missus or Her in doors - Skins = Rizlas or slapheads - Bruv = Mate or another bloke - Solid = To agree with a comment or cheapo Morrocan hash - Barnet = Hair - Bonce = Head - L8trs = Catch you next time - Sound = Well good - Innit = (mainly urban) Oh right! - Gotcha Bruv = Yes I understand fully... K = Ketamine - The feds = Police - Little Fella's = Pills or ecstasy - Yo Muvva Fukkaz = Hello chaps!


This guide is mainly for the demography of Sarf Heast Landaghn... BUT, can be understood by Po$h geezers who frequent Noorf Landaghn too.

Clacton; also known as Romford-On-Sea. Twinned with Hitler's Bunker.

I lived there for a few years. Well, I say 'lived'...more existed in a state of quiet desperation or drug-induced stupor really. :lol:
