FANCY A COUPLE OF BRITNEYS AND AN ANDY MURRAY? COCKNEY RHYMING SLANG GETS A NEW TWIST


Andy Murray....curry
Britney Spears...beers
Would you Adam and Eve it? Traditional Cockney rhyming slang, in use since the 18th Century and which many language experts feared was dying out,  is being given a new twist in London’s East End.
 The new “Popney” (popular Cockney) features the names of modern-day celebrities and is becoming widely used throughout the city according to researchers.
  Now,  a couple of Britneys (Spears) means beers, a Winona (Ryder) is cider and Paul Weller has replaced Nelson Mandella for Stella.  
   The new argot has even reached the boardroom  where executives in a meeting are said to be “in a Ronan” (Irish pop star Ronan Keating).
  If you’re Hank Marvin (starving) you go for an Andy Murray.
    What a Steffi (Graf)!
