In the universal public euphoria over the birth of a new heir to the British throne, a group of ex-convicts has got together to form a society to preserve the tradition of well-organised crimes from Britain's illustrious history.Their spokesperson, who didn't wished to be named, said today, on a remote televsion link "me and the lads thought 'well how can we contribute to the great patriotic tsunami covering the country' and decided it best to stick with what we knew".
They have formed the "Sealed Lip Society", and will be working with many British Institutions with whom they have stolen from in the past. "We are in tlaks with the Didcot Railway to stage a celebratory re-enactment of the Great Train Robbery fifty years after the event, we are really jazzed up".
The new society hopes to gain Arts Council funding in it's early years, but intends to be self-sustaining in the longer run, by selling memorabilia such as replica coshes, jemmy's and ladies tights.
"We look forward to co-operation with local Police Forces to organise security and crowd control" said Max 'Boycie' Boyce "or we'll be talking to the newspapers".
