Good Times, Bad Times for 'Older Men' ...

Those Hatton Garden Robbers, eh?  - and the youngest of 'em 60 !  There's hope for all of us *ahem* senior citizens yet.  I could still squeeze through that hole in the concrete meself ...

Has to be said, though, other news isn't so great as the reaper sweeps up the talented 69-year olds.

Carpe diem all round, hmm?  They certainly seized the diamonds.  Or tempus fugit - time to get outta here.  Or sic transit ...  I think it was a Transit they used.

When I used to buy from nine elms market, the porters were all well known london villains.

They day after the Brinks-Mat robbery the flying squad was in the market, looking to see who was missing.

"Frankie six toes..'strecth' Lincoln...'Snowey' White...Go find them Sergeant."

they had leads within hours just be looking for known 'heavies' and drivers, who were not at work.

This seems to have been a similar situation.

@BQ MP, that sounds like the methods the Corbynistas will use.

Did you mean to transpose the picture captions, Private Eye style? Humour on the occasion of death seems a bit off to me.

BQ - I'd been given a secondment onto the Kojac car as a radio operator put-the-flashing-blue-light-on-the-roof person.

It was a real pose but I were just a lad given a treat for being a good boy. No special talents or training.

Whe took a shout to a bookies that had been held up in the Met area deep in the East End.

We arrived and I was amazed to find the bookies if full swing, taking bets as though nothing had happened (they were well used to being held up, apparently.)

I was pretty miffed when the woman behind the counter told me wait and didn't seem at all rushed about giving me details. So I was a bit pissed about this and about to walk out when a Met area car driver popped his head around the door and said,

"I see you've got it under control. We'll be off then."

I chased after him and when I got outside there were several area cars, all their crew about to get back in their cars and bugger of. A bit of a cheek as it was their patch.

"Where do you think you're going ?"

"You're the Sweeney. What do you need us for ?"

I was flattered and admit to feeling a buzz about it but I had to admit that I was just a kid and well out of my depth - and way WAY off my patch !

Armed blagging is soo last century. It's all internet stuff these days. I'm sure these guys did it for nostalgia more than anything else.
