I found another bit of slang the other day whilst I was watching I think Desperate Hours.

Harold was talking about either the Duke of Edinburgh or Harold Wilson rolling a new Romeo and Juliet.

Romeo Y Julieta is a brand of cigars, originally Cuban. Can’t imagine anything that rhymes with cigar that might be in context. Must watch that episode tonite, see if I can find it :). And remember folks: steer clear of them fags!

Actually, Harold’s comments re: politicians rolling their own fags was directed at Ted Heath :wink:.
