Babe, come on.
You know, when I first saw you, I thought, "He's more intelligent than my normal clients.
" What, is that all you thought? Actually, yeah, it is.
But then I thought, "If he's so intelligent, "what's he doing in a police station?" You never heard of miscarriage of justice? "What's he doing on the streets, running a bunch of kids?" When I was at school, my headmaster took me into his office one day and he told me, "You won't accept anyone telling you what to do.
"You're disrespectful to the teachers.
"You ain't ever going to achieve anything in life.
" But ask anyone in Summerhouse, they know my name, they know who I am.
Dushane, I like people who come from nothing and make something out of themselves, people who want more than what we've been told we can have.
Yeah, well, some of us have to work hard for what we have.
Look, my dad left when I was one year old.
My mum, she can barely read or write.
I went to school, put my head down and I worked hard.
I put myself through college, working in bars, restaurants, babysitting, anything.
Do you get what I'm saying? Summerhouse is a shit hole.
You're the king of a shit hole, Dushane.
Good for you! Michael, what happened, man? Did they beat you up? Yeah, but I didn't say nothing.
You all right, bruv? They charge you? You on bail? When did you get out? Last night.
They let me out with a caution.
Yo! Wagwan! Wagwan! So, you've been nicked now, yeah? Now you know how it feels.
No big deal? No big deal.
So, what did they ask you, then? Who was in the shop with me, what their names was, stuff like that.
What did you say? I said "no comment", like you told me.
You're my best soldier.
Hey, look who's home, fam.
You all right, yeah? Yeah.
You know what? Hold that.
Go and do your ting, man.
All right.
All right.
I checked out that Albanian place still.
I think it's time we paid them a visit, fam.
So, what you saying? Did you get the shoes? Yeah, I got them, but Dushane took them off me.
Why? He was angry, innit.
I had to walk home barefoot and everything.
No socks? No, I had socks on.
You lot, I'm sorry about taking you stealing, innit.
Dushane was there.
I have never, ever seen him so pissed! I know, but he loves you, innit? Was you scared in the police station? No.
No big deal.
Just asked me questions about school, stuff like that.
Just chatting about shit.
Ten on ten? That's 100, yeah.
You got 100? Give it to him.
We ain't got that much here, so he's going to have to go and get it.
Wait over there.
How much you want? All right.
Ten on ten.
You know you're rude, innit? Some ignorant youth.
Next time say Wagwan first, yeah? Get that paper, get one of you lot to come and meet me at the phone box What, bruv? What you doing, man? Get off me, man! Yo! What happened, man? What the fuck? Did he take the food? Yeah.
Oh shit, man! For real? That youth is dead, blud! Did you get him? No.
What was it? Ten on ten, man.
Fuck! Don't worry, man.
Fucking morphine! Here, mate.
Joe, how did these Albanians even know about this shipment, mate? I haven't a fucking clue how they knew.
You'd better believe me on that.
I believe you.
We got to get our food back, though, man.
I'm not going to let these fuckers get away with this, bruv.
Let it go, Dushane.
Those fuckers are killers.
If they're killers, why aren't you dead? Mum? Mum? I got you these.
Where did you get these? I love you.
You know that? Do you want Mr Elephant? No.
Yeah? What about penguin? No.
Mr Panda? No.
Why don't you try saying yes one of these days? Say yes! No.
Do you think that's funny, hmm? No.
What about this, then? The monkey! Yes! There you go.
Monkey! Give me a kiss.
That's from me.
That's from Mum.
It's time to go.
It's the mummy monkey.
Come, give her a kiss, fam.
The Albanians can wait.
Come on! Yes, Mummy! Don't she want me to kiss her? Nobody wants you to kiss them.
Shut your mouth! She don't like you, blud.
She's got taste.
What you laughing at, man? Whatever.

So do I.
What's your theory? You ready for this? The Government.
They're putting stuff in the food.
But only the food people like you and me are eating.
That's what's killing us.
What's the Government putting in the food and how are they getting the stuff in there in the first place? How do they actually do it, bro? You seen that film, yeah? Capricorn One? Jesus!
