tinsel, giving the grubby old town that X-Factor moment of fame
before the gods laughed you off. Now grey slush soaked into Mike’s
cheap trainers as he walked from the job centre.

locked up as a scumbag thief? They’d
never catch him … 6’4”, nearly two years rolling tyres off a lorry
take more than the pale-looking kid in the security uniform.
