Wazappenin blud!

A Cockney is the annoying little denizen of the east end of London, it also covers the irritating dialect they use and the detestable rhyming slang they have invented.

A "true" cockney is someone born within earshot of the bells of St Mary-le-Bow church (Bow Bells) which is in the City of London and not at Bromley-By-Bow further east.

However since the advent of Eastenders it tends be used by 90% of the population north of Dover and south of Peterborough though this is more correctly referred to as Mockney.

It is the preferred manner of speech for all Wideboys and Chavs.
