A is for alcohol. Their preference is for lager, but they have been known to "ease the pain" with whisky. Tony Joy refuses to admit that he is an alcoholic, saying that if someone else had been in his shoes, during his miserable time in the Big City, they too would have turned to drink. Needless to say, throughout "The Londoners" trilogy, our two heroes spend a great deal of their time in their favourite pub, which is a safe haven, and a place where they run to when their world is crashing down around them.
B is for bulging eyes, just like the ones above, which Tony uses to intimidate his victims. Dave reckons that Tony's eyes are the first thing you notice when you meet the man for the very first time. It is with these eyes that Tony mentally undresses all the pretty girls who come into the pub, and it is with these eyes that he drills fear into his victims. Now picture the shaven head, the bloated neck and the flabby stomach, and you will see Mister Joy standing right before you.
To be continued.
