The Outlaws (2021) s02e03 Episode Script

Season 2, Episode 3

1
That's two mochas, a flat
white with an extra shot.

Freshly ground Columbian brew.

We're offering eight lattes
for 80, if you order before 8pm.

And have you heard of our
loyalty card programme?
We don't sell coffee.
We sell coffee.

No, I I can see the confusion.

I think you might be better
off popping into a cafe?
- Good?
- For now.

Place your bets.

Lady Gabby's doing well.

I got this totally
random text out of nowhere
with all these coffee code words.

Turns out they were offering
some top drawer Charlie Chang.

This mystery text, good service, was it?
Oh, superlative, mate.

Ask Her Ladyship if
she needs any jazz salt
and I'll pass on the details
because we both get a discount,
if she uses my code name.

- What's your code name?
- The Panty Patrol.

Someone will be along shortly.

OK, thank you.
Thanks for your
business and tell all your friends.

Oh, my God, you're so disgusting!
Es?
Urgh!
Dealing is wrong.
You know this.

Never forget that.

Now, be wise, stay in school
all the way till the end,
until you're 18.

Don't risk your education for anything.

Drugs don't love you
and they will take you away
from everyone who does love you.

Hey, Myrna,
we're all in agreement with
the "drugs are bad" thing,
but can you turn their lives around
after we've paid back The
Dean and avoided certain death?
Right, I want you to give one of
these to everyone who buys from you.

And don't just dump them in the bin.

I will know.

- We need more staff.

- Staff?
Bigger demand means bigger workload.

We need to recruit more runners.

Are you serious?
Look, I can't be ruining
no more kids' lives.

How else are we going
to deal with the demand?
We really need to do this?
I'm sorry.
I don't know.

I just
It's just four weeks.

Four more weeks.

How are you finding things in here?
My masseuse ain't great but
Margarita Wednesday's a sweet touch.

Who's running your line,
while you're inside?
You got any pull with the governor?
Have you been doing business
with someone called The Dean?
Plumbing in here is proper old-school,
so when anyone on the floors
above yanks their flush,
their shit bubbles up
into the toilet in my cell.

It's like brown lava.

Nasty ain't the word.

I could have a word about a transfer
if you tell me about The Dean.

It's aight.

I'll get used to having a shit
volcano in the corner of my bedroom.

I'll call it
CRAPatoa.

OK.

How about them?
No, no, no, I'll speak to them.

Kids get intimidated by adults,
so a woman's less threatening.

Hello.
Um, I was wondering if I
could ask you a quick question?
Um
Where do you see yourself
in the next five years?
In your vagina.

You're a disgusting young man.

You want me to show you how disgusting?
All right, all right, all
right, all right, all right.

Let me.

Do you lot want to make some money?
Do we have to hold your thing?
Brook Hill are recruiting, right now.

Anyone that you bring to us that
we take on, earn yourself a fiver.

You've got one hour or the deal's off.

What are you waiting for?
Mr Halloran,
I don't see anything on your
CV about computer experience.

Why is that?
Well, I mean .
.

can a computer sell fully
floating two-piece brake rotors
to the Swedish World Rally team?
We're developing AI
algorithms that can, yes.

Which is why I've recently
purchased a Toshiba laptop
voted Which? magazine's
best mid-price all-rounder,
two years in a row.

You all know what working
for Brook Hill entails, right?
Are you Jamie Honeywell's nephew?
Later, then.

Hey.

What's up?
What's wrong with him?
His uncle's a fed.

- But we need bodies.

- No, we can't just take anyone.

But
Can you give me an example of a
conflict you've experienced at work
and how you resolved it amicably?
Yeah.
Actually, yes.

A lady at work was asking
for endless days off.

She said she had long Covid
and I gave her the benefit
of the doubt, as you do,
then saw her abseiling at
Chessington World of Adventures.

And how did you resolve
this conflict amicably?
Fired her.

It was fine, though.
She had
a zero-hours contract, so
- How old are you?
- I'm eight.

Ten.

Get to school!
I mean it.
Go!
Bye.

I don't think you're quite right for us
but feel free to grab a
Nespresso on the way out.

Nah.

- Come on, B.

- No, not you, Tyler.

I done this before, I know the drill.

I'm a hard worker, punctual,
and I got my own bike.

- No.

- Why?
- Because I don't trust you.

- OK.

Can I speak to you, please?
Why can't we use him?
We're going to run out
of people at this rate.

Tyler is 18.
If he gets
nabbed, he's going to do time.

Plus, he's not the brightest
light on the Christmas tree.

OK, well, we're not auditioning
for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

We need drug runners, people who
can count in tens and run fast.

- Trust me, we don't want him.

- OK, but we need him!
Tyler, you're in.

All right, step up.

Come take your phone.

What are you doing? Have you
never painted a door before?
No.
Half the time, I
don't open them for myself.

Well, that's not how
you do it.
Give it here.

Right, look.

You get about a centimetre of paint
on the end of the brush, all right?
And we're going to go up.

Pull up, pull up, pull up.

- Understand?
- Not really.
Could you show me again?
Right, look and learn.

We're pulling up, we're
pulling up, we're pulling up.

Nice and neat, yeah?
Hello?
Hi, yes.
Can I place a coffee
order, please, for delivery?
What do you want?
The cleanest way to wash
and transfer this money
to The Dean's Swiss account
is to set up a shell company.

Well, we need an offshore
tax haven for that, don't we?
Gibraltar or Virgin
Islands or something.

You'd think so, but those places
have tightened up the rules.

We need somewhere that doesn't
bother with their due diligence.

Like Azerbaijan?
- Britain.

- Britain?
We're one of the best places
in the world for fraud.

This country really doesn't
bother with all that expensive,
time-consuming due diligence stuff.

So, I went on the
Companies House website,
and for £12, I set up a company.

And since 11am, we've been trading
as Laycock Logistical Services.

You're welcome.

Right.

But it's not all good news.

I was thinking, why don't I
take you to the beach tomorrow?
We don't have time for a mini-break.

It's just for the day, just to
get away, get a bit of perspective.

- It's nothing big.

- But I have so much to do,
and what if we're
needed suddenly? Then
Rani, you can take the afternoon off
to spend some time with your boyfriend.

Boyfriend?
Aren't I?
We just haven't used those words before.

Yeah, I know, but
we care about each other.

We share a flat, beds.

Are you not my girlfriend?
Yeah?
Oi, Bonnie and Clyde, problem.

When we come to the lock, that
is a different kettle of fish.

OK, I'm going to keep it low, keep
it loose, keep those hips loose
and really simple,
clean line down, creep off.

Creep and pull off.

Yep, creep and pull off.

Excuse me, excuse me.

Hey, hey, hey, hey.

Have you got a permit?
What is going on here?
You're bringing in too much money.

You're like the West Country
Pablo Escobar and her boyfriend.

We can't put it all through
Casino's and Gabby's client account
without drawing attention.

We need to diversify, find a
third way to launder all this cash.

OK.
So, what's your plan?
I don't know.
I ran out of ideas
after Laycock Logistical Services.

Get out of here!
I'm going to put out a
tweet that will shred you.

What is the matter with her?
You come back tomorrow and
All right, stop!
Can you believe this?
After all our hard work.

What?
The council is selling this place
to some telecommunication
corporate arsewipes,
so they can demolish it and
build a mobile phone mast.

I mean, guys, I love my mobile phone
but we have spent ages
renovating this place.

I've told them we're going
to do a demo here tomorrow.

We are going to bring down the media
and we are going to raise a stink.

Who is with me? Greg? Yes, obviously.

Is he?
We all have a lot on
our plates at the moment.

We need to save this
place from developers.

We're not the Goonies.

What?
Myrna, I mean, you're on my side, right?
We'll get your group on board.

Yeah, I mean, I can bring it up
at a meeting, but as Rani says,
I've got a lot on my
plate at the moment.

What's wrong with you?!
Ben?
We are going to the beach tomorrow.

The beach?
Diane?
Well, in order to
organise a demonstration,
you need to give the police written
notice at least 24 hours before.

You've only got 19 hours left.

So, if you did do that, I
would have to take you down.

Why does nobody care about this?
We could raise the funds
and buy the place ourselves.

I am so disappointed in all of you.

I thought we were a team.

Yeah?
Is that the Panty Patrol?
Speaking.

Coffee delivery.

Yo, hang loose, my G.

Let me get your money.

Come in, shut the door, man.

50, 100
150, there you go, mate.

Sweet watch, bruv.
What is it, a Rollie?
Thanks, bruv.
It's a Patek Philippe.

It's actually worth a
bit more than a Rolex.

Where do you buy a watch like that?
I didn't buy it.
It used
to belong to my grandfather.

But you know what they say,
you don't own one of these,
you just look after
them for the next owner.

Hah.

Yeah, which is me, innit?
I'm sorry, what?
I'm the next owner.

So, give me my watch
and I own that laptop
and how much cash have you got in
here? 'Cos I own all of that, too.

OK, that's Yeah, honestly,
take whatever you need, mate.

Take whatever you need.

We could use social media
presence to raise awareness,
which I would be happy to do.

What is going on?
I'm just bringing everyone
up to speed with our campaign.

- What campaign?
- To save the community centre, as we discussed.

We didn't discuss anything.

I said I would bring
it up with the group.

And that's what I'm doing.

Greg.

Well, the 2012 Localism Act
means that a group like yours
can "stop the clock" on the sale
and nominate it as an
"asset of community value",
which allows you time to prepare a bid,
so you can actually buy it yourselves
for the "wider benefit
of the community".

One: can you "stop doing that"?
And two: what would we do
with a building like that?
Open a community hub.

Rehab centre, pre-natal
advice, groups for local kids.

It's a great idea.

Yeah, well, obviously, but
how do we buy a building?
Fundraising.

It was Greg's idea.

Oh, was it, now?
We are planning a demo for tomorrow.

Right, well, you can't do that.

Because you need to give the
police 24 hours written notice
before you can have a demonstration.

Since when do you care about the police?
Has anyone thought about the optics?
Optics?
An over-privileged
white woman, no offence,
fronting a black civil
rights organisation.

She wouldn't be fronting it.

She'd be an enthusiastic
celebrity supporter
with a million followers
on social media.

It is 1.
2 million.

Right, so, that's what
we've become now, have we?
Getting into bed with fame whores.

No offence.

These days, any campaign
has to cut through the noise
to the wider public.
Her
Ladyship could help us with that.

- Just think of the fundraising potential.

- No.

I am the Director of the BJC
and, no, I am too uneasy about this.

Then we have to put it to the vote.

All those in favour?
Yeah.

Greg, can I have a word?
What are you doing?!
Gabby is the only thing that
links me to that stolen money
and you're bringing her down here
with some crazy idea about
buying the community centre.

Yeah, because this is how we
launder the rest of the drug money.

What?
- Brownie?
- Oh, brownie, yeah, thanks very much.
Lovely.

No, thanks, Beth.

You're right.
A moment
on the lips, a lifetime
Off your tits.

That's Acid Beth.

Eat one of her brownies, you
ain't coming down for days.

Now, what were you saying
about laundering money?
Right, look, BJC fundraise to save
the community centre, all right?
Real people make cash
donations, all right?
A fiver here, a quid there.

To those real donations,
we add the drug money,
mix 'em all together,
give 'em a good wash,
pay that into the BJC account,
and then, transfer out what we
need to Laycock Logistical Services.

No! I am not using the
BJC to wash dirty money.

We need an organisation that
regularly deposits big sums of cash
into the bank without causing suspicion.

Claire is already suspicious
of everything I do.

How do I explain this?
You don't have to explain it.
You
just make me the BJC treasurer.

Say that Gabby demands that
her lawyer has independent
financial oversight.

Yeah, right, 'cos that sounds like her.

Grant me access to the BJC account,
I'll take care of the whole thing.

Plus, Gabby was right.

Do we really want to see
that building torn down
after all the work we've done?
No, that could be a community
hub, owned and operated by the BJC,
helping the people of Bristol.

That could be a real thing.

That could be our legacy.

- My legacy.

- No, our legacy.

So, this may be nothing
but a bloke just came in,
says he was robbed at knife-point
and the thief just walks in the
front door, no mask, nothing.

All sounds a bit suspect.

What do you think?
Drug buy gone wrong?
Mm.
That's what I'm wondering.

OK.

Let's go.

Got a favourite criminal, or ?
- No?
- No, sir.

I'm a Shipman guy.

Hello, sir.
I'm
Detective Sergeant Haines.

This is Detective Sergeant Selforth.

We understand you've been robbed.

Yeah, yeah.
Utter ball-ache but,
you know, these things happen.

I just need someone to rubber-stamp
a report for my insurance claim.

How did the thief gain
entry into your home, sir?
He he rang the door bell
and and I opened the door.

So, you know the thief.

No.

Then, why'd you let him in?
The poor lad said he was out and about
and got caught short and
he needed to use the toilet.

Couldn't he just pee in
an alley or something?
Yeah, he could've, um
but he said he
needed more than a pee.

So, you let a teenage boy
into your house to take a shit?
- I did.

- That's very kind of you.

Yeah, which is why this
all just hurts so much
'cos I I feel used.

So, I assume this thief,
if he was just in your house to
take a dump, didn't have a mask on?
- No.

- So, you got a good look at him.

Could you give us a description?
OK.
Um, look
I'm actually a lawyer myself,
so I'm aware you guys are
woefully under-resourced.

I'm not proposing a manhunt for the guy.

I just need someone
to sign and stamp this
and I'll be out of your hair.

Which is looking incredibly
glossy, if I may say.

What conditioner do you use?
What drugs were you buying?
Er
I wasn't I wasn't buying drugs.

Like I said, I just thought
the chap needed an innocent poo.

He got a laptop, hard drive,
iPad, Patek Philippe wristwatch.

Don't they say you never
really own one of those ?
You're just looking after
them for the next owner, yes.

Do you want to just sign
it and I can be on my way?
No.

We can't let this sort of thing happen
to esteemed members of
our legal profession.

- Come with us.

- Um, why?
Come on.
It'll be quick.

I do have plans today.

I'm going to a bitcoin
seminar in Swindon.

Sort of like curly
fringe, wavy, sort of.

Yeah, yeah.

Great.
We'll run this
through the system.

If he has a record,
we'll find the swine.

You've got to focus
on the bigger picture.

I'm only in it for a few
weeks, and then, it'll be over,
and the good that the
BJC will do in the future
will make up for the
bad that I'm doing now.

Any real change implies
the breaking of the world
as we have always known it.

Right?
Community!
Not 5G.

Community!
- Not 5G.

- Community!
Not 5G.

- We really need some more people down here.

- Yeah.

And some local news.

You mentioned about doing a livestream?
Yeah, good point.
I'll get on it.

Community!
Not 5G.

- Community!
- Not 5G.

What are you doing here?
I'm here in my official
capacity as a trainee PCSO.

These things start with a
few banners and a sing-song,
but then end with you getting shot
in the gonads by a rubber bullet.

Now, I don't want to have to do
that, but if it comes to it, I will.

All right? You've been warned.

This is us.

The little people versus
big business and it is war,
which is why I am dressed to fight.

So, just in case you were wondering,
the cardigan is vintage Valentino
and the shorts are upcycled by Miu Miu.

So, come on down and join the fight.

Brownie?
No, thanks, I'm in training.

- Community!
- Not 5G.

Community!
Actually, I will have one.

Keep the energy levels up.

Not 5G.

- Community!
- Leg day tomorrow.
Better carb up.

- Community!
- Not 5G.

- Community!
- Not 5G.

Platform 10, the delayed
10:45 CrossCountry Service
OK, look, revenue's really
good, it's just not high enough.

It's like it's like
there's a hole somewhere.

I think we need to re-check
figures on the three-for-twos.

Hey.

Can you put that away
for just a few hours?
Yeah, yeah.

The 11:30
Weston-super-Mare train
is now arriving on platform 4.

Oi, check it out.

Cool, I love it.

Drake rocks one just like it.

You always see it when he's on
stage 'cos it catches the light.

Touch it.

Oh, shit.

You know, when I was seven, my
mum brought me here for the day.

First time I ever saw
sand, donkeys, all of that.

Was it weird?
Nah.

Nah, it was cool.

It's one of the very few happy
memories I've got with her.

Got with anyone.

Oh, my days.

I remember this place.

I had my first fish and
chips here, that day.

The batter
incredible.

It's amazing it's still here.

Just about.

You ever remember something so
much, it's like you made it up?
Like you drew it in your
imagination or something.

That's how I feel, when
I think about this place.

I want you to imagine
something, yeah? Mm-hm.

Imagine a sign that says, "Ben
And Rani's Caribbean Cookout".

Nah, I'm serious.

We should buy this place.

My cooking, your brains.

What, did you bring me here
for this?
Yeah, I saw it online for sale.

OK, so
we'd move to Weston and
run a food shack together?
Yeah.
I mean, you ever
wanted to live by the sea?
I mean, it's it's out there
somewhere.

Do you want to have a look inside?
Yeah.
OK, fine.

Yeah? All right, I'll
call the estate agent.

It's open.

Can you positively identify the thief?
- Number three.

- You sure?
Yes, but he's not wearing my
watch, which is concerning.

Wow.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

I never knew you could do this.

You can hear your eyes breathing.

Listen.
Shhh!
- I can't hear anything.

- You can't hear that?
- Are you all right?
- Yeah, you?
Oh, it's bouncy.

Oh.

I'm here with Kelly.

Now, when this place was a
community centre back in the '90s,
it helped you turn your life
around, didn't it, Kelly?
When my mum died, I started
using drugs and alcohol,
got evicted, I was
living on the streets,
and one day, I just came in
here to get out of the cold.

The people were so caring,
didn't judge, they just
listened to me when I said
Listening is so important.

Yeah, it helped me get my
confidence back, my self-esteem.

They helped me get a flat.

They helped me go back to school
and I turned my life around.

Amazingly, Kelly is now a doctor.

I'm a chiropractor.

Amazing.

Thank you for sharing your
amazing story with us, Kelly.

God bless you, sweetie.

- Can I have a hug?
- OK.

At me, if this hit you
as hard as it's hit me.

We need to help people like
Kelly, so come on, come down here.

Oh, sh, sh.
It's OK.

It's all right.
We'll find
her, don't worry.
Don't cry.

Oh, it's OK.

Right, you stay there.

We'll find her, OK?
All right.

Has anyone lost a small child?
She's got no hair.

So, why did you leave
your previous employment?
I felt like I'd hit a
bit of a glass ceiling.

You felt like you hit a glass ceiling
at a company called Halloran & Son,
where you were the son in question?
Yes, love.
Yeah, I I do.
I did.

Hitting the glass ceiling normally
refers to women or minority groups
encountering invisible barriers to
their career because of prejudice.

- Yep.

- And you feel that applies to you?
Prejudice can impact anyone, I think,
and what I want to do is
I want to I want to
smash that ceiling, you know?
And I want to reach back in
and I want to pull up anyone
who's behind me, you know?
Be they women or
immigrants, minorities,
anyone, you know,
as long as they're hard workers
and they pass the background checks.

Thank you for taking the
time to come in today.

That's it? We're done?
Did I get the job?
I'm afraid not.
We've
decided to go a different way.

What does that mean?
We're looking for someone
who can integrate into a
more contemporary ecosystem.

I can integrate into an
ecosystem.
I can.
That's
Please, look, I
I need this job.

OK? And, so, you know
Come on.
Just give me a chance.

I'm sorry.

Sorry for calling you love, just then.

I don't know what that was.
Sorry.

I just I don't even say that
normally.
Just a slip of the tongue.

It's fine.

Well, is it, though?
I mean, you're not hiring me, are you?
Not because of that.

I just I don't know.

I don't know what I'm
supposed to say or do any more.

Changing by the bloody minute, isn't it?
It just it just seems like from
the beginning of time, you know,
if it if it wagged its tail and
it barked and looked like a dog,
it was a dog.

And these days, it turns
out it could be a cat.

It could be a cat.

But if you call it a dog
and it's actually a cat,
that's it, man, you're just
You're cancelled.
No second chances.

You know, I'm a I'm a middle-aged
white bloke.
Sorry, you know?
I can't help it.
I was
born this way and
that's it.
It doesn't
automatically make me homophobic
or transphobic or sexist or racist, OK?
Yes, I did I did recently fire
one of our black delivery guys,
not because he was black,
because he was reading his
Kindle while he was driving.

And, ladies, for what it's worth,
if my hand happens to brush
up against you in the lift,
it doesn't automatically make
me Harvey bloody Weinstein, OK?
'Cos believe it or not, not
every single living man out there
wants to jump your bones at
every fucking opportunity.

Thanks for coming in.

This place would need so much work.

Doesn't anything that's worth doing?
You ready for my menu ideas, yeah?
Aight, so we got ackee
and saltfish, dumpling,
oxtail, jerk chicken rice and peas,
green mango chutney, sorrel -
all the stuff my grandma used to make.

So, what do you say?
Hello?
You're screwed.

Did you scoop new recruits
without talking to me?
Well, business is booming.

We needed extra hands.

Well, one of your new hands
pulled a knife on a customer,
who then went to the feds,
who've now picked him up.

Some youth called Tyler?
Are you even vetting these people?
Well, how are you meant
to vet drug dealers,
you know, ask for a CV and a reference?
I beg you tell me this
Tyler ain't seen your face.

He
Yeah, he has seen my face.

- Shit!
- What?
That means he can ID you, you amateur.

He could be looking at a ten stretch.

- Which means?
- Which means he'll trade you for a reduced sentence.

And once they've got you,
genius, they've got me.

There has to be something we can do.

Damn right.
Stop him talking ASAP.

OK, how do we do that ?
You all right, Officer?
Go on, then.

Are you going to say, "I told you so"?
I was going to say
we need a good lawyer.

No, we need a bad lawyer.

Oh, God, oh, God, oh, God.

Breathe, calm down, we can sort this.

How? He'll have a duty
lawyer assigned to him
and he'll encourage him
to make any deal he can,
and then he'll start naming names,
and one of the names he's
going to name is your name
and that'll lead to my name.

OK, so, just get in that police
cell and stop him talking.

How the bloody hell am
I supposed to do that?
Oh, God.
Oh, God, oh, God.

Just breathe, calm down.
We
can figure it out.
It's fine.

There's no way to get
inside a police cell.

There is always a way.
Think.

We're on our way back now.

Did you commit armed robbery
in broad daylight with no mask,
nothing covering your face?
Peppa Pig.

Either you're incredibly stupid
or you didn't go to that flat with
the intention of robbing anyone.

Why did you go to the flat?
Peppa Pig.

Are you involved in drug dealing?
- Peppa
- Pig.
I got it.

I told you I was right
to involve a celebrity.

Lady Gabby.

Hi, guys.
Esther Mansfield,
West Country News.

How do you react to the
controversy around your livestream?
What controversy?
Have you read some of the things
that people are saying about you online?
What are people saying?
"Tell Lady Gabby I'd
like to donate money "
Yay, great!
" so this dumb airhead
can go back to school
and learn about white saviour complex.
"
That took a turn I wasn't expecting.

Mm.
You're trending.

People are accusing you of
being a white supremacist.

What?
We have to get going,
we've got a big problem.

I know, I've got a problem right here.

Yeah, but this one
won't put you in jail.

black people by reinforcing
inherited white supremacist
systems of oppression.

But I'm I'm not.
I I
don't even know what that means.

I think that's part of the problem.

Can we talk about why we
are really down here today?
This one says, "Does
Lady Gabby seriously think
people of colour need her to save them?"
I mean, I'm trying to.

- OK, let's go.

- Lady Gabby
Where's Greg? He normally
handles these things.

- Where's Greg?
- Lady Gabby.

Lady Gabby, are you a white supremacist?
Does your silence mean yes?
No!
- Telephone!
- Go home!
- Telephone!
- Go home!
- Telephone!
- Go home!
When were you born?
You can answer that at least.

The 12th of August 2003.

So, you're 18 years old.

You'll be charged as an adult.

That means prison.

Do you know how long you
get for armed robbery?
Five to ten years.

You will get done for this.

You'll go to prison
or you can co-operate
and I can help you.

If you don't, they will
charge you with armed robbery,
and once they charge
you, I can't help you.

Do you want me to help you?
Myrna Okeke, Bristol Justice Collective.

You're holding a young
man named Tyler Levison.

We demand to speak to him immediately.

Well, hurry up.

Chop, chop!
Do you think you're ready for prison?
Locked up for 23 hours a day.

Rat-infested.

It's overcrowded
and I hope you like a ruck
because they will beat you down
the minute they look at you.

That's if you don't kill yourself first.

Lots of suicides in prison.

Tyler Levison's being
spoken to by an officer
and has a duty solicitor present.

Oh, well, that won't do.

Yeah, well, it's going
to have to.
Goodbye.

Do you want me to get on social media?
Tell them that Bristol and Avon
Police are holding a young black man
and refusing to give him access
to independent, free legal counsel?
There'll be a mob outside in an hour.

He's not black.

Twitter won't care.

Christian Taylor, heard of him?
Ran Brook Hill.

He's inside now and he
told me, in his cell,
whenever anyone above
him pulls the flush,
their shit bubbles up in his toilet.

Fancy staring at other people's
shit for five to ten years?
What do you want to know?
Who are you dealing for?
Knock, knock.
Don't
say another word, Tyler.

What's going on?
Well, as a solicitor working with
the Bristol Justice Collective
and given the ongoing
miscarriages of justice
by the police in this city,
I am providing this young
man with free legal counsel.

So, I'd like to speak to my client
in private, please, if you don't mind.

Off we go.

Quick as you can.

I normally get paid by the hour
but I'm doing this pro bono,
so I'm losing money.

Why did you let him in?
They were threatening to
put something on Twitter.

Fair enough.

What have you told her?
I ain't sayin' nothing to
you, too.
I don't know you.

Well, my name's Greg
and I'm your new lawyer.

I like pork pies
good manners, anything
starring Martin Clunes.

I hate racism, homophobia,
and when you leave tissues
in your trouser pockets,
and then put them in
the washing machine.

- Yeah, that sucks.

- Right, exactly.

So, you know everything about
me now.
We trust each other.

- What did you tell her?
- Nothin'.

OK, good.
Well, if you
continue to say nothing,
I can get you out of here.

- OK.

- All right? But you have to tell me,
what did she want to know?
They said they're going to
charge me with armed robbery,
unless I 'fess up about
some dealing I done.

- OK, who did you rob?
- Some posh twat in some twatty flat.

He kept going on about
his Patek Philippe
and it was getting on my tits.

I can see how it would, yeah.

Do you remember where he lived?
Yeah.
Raymond Gardens, number 22.

You don't know his name, do you?
His watch was engraved,
"To Spencer, enjoy this
fanny magnet, love, Gramps".

- Did you say Spencer?
- Yeah.

- Hello?
- Hi, it's me.

Excuse me, sir, your
father said not to
Dad, I need to talk to you.

Now's not a good time.

- No, please.

- I'm on my way to see Hilgard.

Please, listen.
Put me on probation.

Cut my pay by a quarter.

Whatever you want.

Just just
just take me back, please.

You're begging.
It's undignified.

No, I'm not
I'm not begging, Dad.

I am asking you
for a second chance.
Please.

Listen, I I will work
every hour God sends.

What would that teach you?
Teach me?
What more do I need to fucking learn?!
Sorry.

Sorry, I just
I'm on my arse here, mate.

Really, truly, and I need your help.

I don't deny you're on your
arse but you're not coming back.

Then what am I going to do?
You will do what I did.

Pull yourself up by
your bloody bootstraps.

Lady Gabriella Penrose-Howe,
the social media influencer,
dubbed "the it-girl
for the IT generation",
faces a powerful backlash,
following a livestreamed interview
with a local woman of colour
that many say revealed
her white saviour complex.

Abigail Knightly is
from a nonprofit group,
fighting poverty and modern
slavery through art and dance.

Abigail, you're one of those
who was deeply upset
by Her Ladyship's words.

Yeah, I mean, my
sister sent me the video
and I was just immediately triggered.

We do not need any more rich,
narcissistic white saviours
coming down to "the ghetto"
to rescue impoverished people of colour,
so that they can feel
better about themselves
and get more likes on Instagram.

If you agree, please do
follow me: @AbiKnightly.

Well, Lady Gabriella,
who first became famous
after she was spotted
twerking with Prince Harry
in Ibiza eight years ago,
is currently inside this building,
refusing to speak to reporters.

Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

- Diane, it's me.

- Do I know you?
It's Myrna.

Myrna, hi!
Whoa, why is your head so big?
It's normal size.

Is it?
Cool.

Hey, hey, look at my hands.

They've turned into feet.

Big feet.

What happened to the protest?
Myrna, I was only trying to help.

Why are you hiding in here?
We're not hiding.
We're
formulating a response.

And that takes a committee, does it?
This is a democracy, Myrna.

The group has to speak as one.

We should never have brought her in.

I knew this was going to
happen.
I said that, didn't I?
I'm so sorry.

You were right, we know.

We've just written her a statement.

All in agreement, say "Aye".

Aye.

A quick word, Lady Gabby.

I have prepared a statement.

Through my recent insensitive remarks,
I have reinforced the damaging
stereotype of the white person
as the benevolent agent of change and
and people of colour
as the passive others
in need of my charity.

This goes against everything
the Bristol Justice
Collective stands for,
and so, consequently, I am
stepping away from all
involvement with the group.

I am so deeply sorry for the
hurt and pain I have caused.

I will be taking time to reflect and
to educate myself.

Thank you.

Lady Gabby, white saviour complex
is a symptom of white supremacy,
which was used to
justify the slave trade.

Are you a white supremacist?
I don't think so.

You don't think so.
So, you might be?
- No, you're twisting my words.

- That is enough.

I am the founder of the
Bristol Justice Collective
and I refuse to accept
Lady Gabby's resignation.

- And what's your name?
- Myrna Okeke.

How do you spell that?
You're a reporter, Google it.

Do you know what? This is fake news.

The real story is, why
aren't you news people
camped outside the council offices,
asking the politicians
why they're accepting money
from a multinational
telecommunications company,
who pay zero tax in this country
- Yeah!
- so they can knock down this community centre
- and put up a mobile phone mast?
- Yeah.

We wouldn't know about any of
that, if it wasn't for Gabby.

I've been fighting white
supremacy for 40 years,
and let me tell you something, this
woman ain't no white supremacist.

She's just trying to raise some
money to save this building.

So, put your phones away, put your
hands in your pockets - thanks -
and give us your money.

- Community!
- Not 5G!
- Community!
- Not 5G!
Come on, you as well.

Paparazzi, news reporters,
photographers, give us your money.

- Community!
- Not 5G!
- Community!
- Not 5G!
Who are you dealing for?
- No comment.

- Who's running you?
- No comment.

- Who's in charge of Brook Hill?
No comment, pig.

I didn't tell him to say pig.

I I have absolute total
respect for the police.

Not the racist ones
or the corrupt ones
or the ones that beat
confessions out of people,
but ones like you seem absolutely
It's three o'clock.

I'd have a little conversation
with your solicitor,
because at 3:30, I'm
walking back in here,
and if you don't start talking,
I'm having you charged
with armed robbery.

That's five to ten
years of bubbling shit.

You said you'd sort this.

I am.

Well, you've got 30 minutes
or I'm singing like Beyonce.

Sure you want to do this?
Is there another way?
This'll be like
role-play, yeah? Like WWE.

We're not going to hurt him for real.

Oh.

Hello?
Hi, it's Detective Sergeant Haines.

Can I have a word, please?
Er
Yeah, OK.

Er
What? Urgh!
Argh!
Make a sound and I'll slit
your throat.
You got it?
Take anything you want but I
was literally robbed yesterday,
so I haven't got much left.

Look, I don't want your stuff.

I want you to drop the charges.

- What?
- The boy that robbed you,
I want you to drop all the charges.

- I I can't.

- I'm not asking you, I'm telling you.

No, no, I can't, I can't.
The
copper's already suspicious.

If I drop the charges,
she'll know something's up.

You're going to do what we say
or I'm going to break your arm.

You're not serious?
Hold his arm out straight.

Hold his arm out straight!
OK, sunshine, that's it.
Final warning.

I'm charging you with
aggravated robbery,
unless you tell me right
now, who are you dealing for?
- I
- DS Haines.

What?!
What do you want?
I made a mistake.
I'm sorry.

The man you have is totally innocent.

I withdraw all charges fully.

Who got to you?
I I don't know what you mean.

That watch just means so much to
me, so I just wanted someone blamed,
so I picked a random
kid out of the line-up.

- Get out.

- Yes, ma'am.

- I don't suppose you found the watch ?
- Get out!
Shall I put eyes on him?
It's pointless.

Whoever's running him
knows he's hot now.

They'll stand him down.

I blew our one bloody lead.

Well, we may have another.

- You know PC Lane?
- No.

- Big guy, squiffy eye.

- Oh, yeah.

Yeah, well, his gran
got this random text -
"Party all weekend with
Columbian coffee, 100% pure.

Flat white: 80 quid.

Rock harder with double espresso: 150.
"
That's some pricey coffee.

Yeah, I'll check it out.

Wow, people are so generous.

Look at all these 50s.

Amazing.

Only four weeks left, until
The Dean needs his money.

He's worried you're
falling behind schedule.

So, he's asked us to come and
give you a little kick up the arse.

You weren't seriously going
to break his arm, were you?
If that's what it took.

You can't be serious.

You said it yourself, we have no choice.

We always have a choice:
whether to cross the line or not.

Just four more weeks,
and then we're done.

All right, you keep saying
we have four more weeks,
and then we're done,
but what if we've crossed
a line and we can't go back?
You didn't say if you were down.

- To what?
- My food shack idea.

- We'd need a lot of start-up money
- Yeah.

and it would be difficult.

Look, I could work
extra shifts at the club.

And I'm going to talk to
John about mortgage structures
and small business loans.

You're not into this, are you?
I
Look, I don't want
to pressure you, Rani,
but don't you want to make plans
for when all this shit's over?
A food shack?
You were the one that said I
could do this professionally.

For the first time,
someone said I could do something
other than just staying alive.

What?
I'll have two flat whites, please.

- Where are you?
- Bridge Street, by the water.

- Wearing what?
- Grey hoodie and blue jeans.

- 30 minutes.

- Safe.

How about I ask my parents
for a loan to put down a deposit?
Seriously?
You'd do that?
Course, you're my boyfriend.

In response to the protest,
a spokesman for Bristol
City Council said
they would hold a town hall
meeting with local residents
and the telecommunications
company to discuss plans.

The protest ended with a
rather unexpected example
of police community outreach.

- This is the grasshopper.

- Yeah!
- This the wheelbarrow.

- Yeah!
- Are you ready to see the Diane special?
- Yeah!
You, yeah?
All right, mate?
- What you sayin'? You all right?
- Yeah, good, boss.
How you doin'?
Aight, take that and take that.

- All right?
- Cheers, boss.

- Have a good one, yeah? Aight.

- You too, man.

All right, what have you got for me?
He gave me these, which
ain't very on-brand.

We cool?
- Cool.

- Cool.
