Cockneys claim they invented the coracle, choirs and strikes

In a bitter feud, where East takes on West. The continuing war of words and claims on invention and historical fact, Londoners have hit back over claims that the Welsh invented rhyming slang.

Boris Johnson the self proclaimed spokesman for the Pearly Queens, told the waiting reporter from the 'Rhonda Evening News' that there is no question rhyming slang originated in the East End of London, but also claimed the coracle was first used on the Thames by jellied eel fishermen. He went on to say, when there was a good catch from the Thames estuary, the fishermen would sing in groups for a good old ding dong, these were called choirs.

There was also a link to the eel fishermen and strikes. The popularity of eels soared putting a huge demand on supply. Exhausted Cockneys would after a long week of fishing and singing, withdraw their labour and sit in the currant bun with a couple of Britney Spears until the were Uncle Dick. They would all shout in unison STRIKE when one of their fellows would collapse like a Mickey Monk.

The last remaining coal miner Evan Evans denied he was a Londoner and all these claims were pure nonsense and the they were all a bunch of Wayne Rooneys.
