Events are always from one extreme to another - one minute you’re witnessing a fist fight, blink, and you’re suddenly coming up after taking a green Adidas pill. “Have you got a lighter, mate” There’s so many “Have you got a lighter”s knocking about, almost always smoking menthol cigarettes. But it’s usually the Rothmans or Chesterfield smokers who hand one over, it’s like a scene from Romeo and Juliet. Beware of “Have you got a cigarette, mate”, which is “Have you got a ligh
