The above tend to inhabit the public bars and not drive bling boats or gin palaces, very often seen helming a sailing boat.

Not to be taken too seriously.
Who said 'many a true word spoke in jest'?!

Jenny Morgan,
A vane, a boat, but not a bird.

The Broads is NOT a National Park, but it is a National Treasure!

hmmm, a few things missing from the Estuary English.
The Thames "K" for example often to be found replacing the "G" at the ends of words ending in "ING" (though not always) also the "G" will be often be missing. This gives us somefink to thing about, an makin lernin to spell ard.
Anuver thin to fink abart is the Sarfend "H" always said Haich not Aich. This is like tryin ta sarnd posh like what the Queen (blesser) does. Narh, what I donunderstan, is why peepol fink it sarnd funny. its just normal, innit...y'know.

Honesty Sincerity and Integrity ... When you can fake those, you've cracked it.
