Doctors at Kings College hospital investigating several cold cases from 1930's London, have today revealed that the cockney song Mother Brown, refers to an early drag artist who faced a horrific death at the hands of East End homophobes.
“Her, or should I say his unnatural fascination for requesting knees up unnatural places, was the cause of his being outed and eventual death” claimed Dr Siah Nintinga who heads the investigations.
There are confirmed reports that fellow Cockneys had warned him of the consequences of bending, but these went unheeded.
Mother Brown was found in Brown Bread Street, Plaistow stuffed upside down in an empty barrel of ale, with his legs sawn off.
"The stage career of his only child Danny Le Rue, might have taken a different turn, if he had received closure on the cause of his mother’s death at the time. The coroner’s report wrongly described his death as excess alcohol consumption rendering him legless” explains Dr Nintinga, “which we can now categorically refute”.
