Essex Underworld/Essex Boys

Watched a very very interesting documentary  on one of the sky discovery channels about the  "Essex Underworld finishing with the murder of the "Retendon 3" I am from Essex and knew numerous poeple etc... etc... but obviously only as gym friends etc...  But this documentary was very good, never realised the 3 murdered guys (Rolfe, Tate and Tucker) upset so many seriously nasty people 2 of whom were on there - Billy Blundell and another I can't remember who'd been hired by the Krays on occassion for work, now living in Essex.  Mr Blundell apparently had a meeting with the 3 and only Tate turned up but this was 3 days before they were murdered and he basically told them what was goin to happen to them lol.

    I'll have to check RB and get back to you, but it was very good started with the Krays and explained why when the Police cracked down on the underworld many of the major players moved out to Essex and then to the present day.
     
    TBH it surprised me how candid some of these guys were lol, I certainly wouldn't want to upset them, although I did have a driving "altercation" with Pat Tate in Basildon once lol.

    Lots of deaths/things (for what ever reason) have gone on in good old Essex and never hit the headlines.
    Its a very interesting programme on a very violent time.

    I've heard a lot of interesting stories from my uncle who was a bookmaker for someone I won't mention (but is famous in those circles) for dog racing at Walthamstow and Romford dog tracks. Nasty pieces of work I can tell you...

    Tate and Tucker upset everybody.
     
    They were loose cannons,and both of them were bullys, especially Pat, Tony could be ok, but still liked to throw his weight around for the sake of it. Not pleasant characters, and few people were terribly upset when they got shot.
     
    Neither were they the huge players that media and films may create the impression of. They got lucky and made a load of cash fast off of the fledgling E market. Much bigger fish in the essex pond, and the smarter ones you'd never have heard of

    I recently read the book class of 88. Was really shocked to see  that Andrew Pritchard one of the event organisers who ran the  Genesis rave event, being connected to Carlton leach's firm being the ICF who protected them then they became business parteners. It will be the raves that he refers to in Rise of the foot soldier

    I agree Tac I knew/know of a few, many went into "fairly" legit business.
    But still a very intersting watch. As I said I had a run in with Tate and I'm not the hardest of characters lol.
     
    The Bernie O Mahoney site has some unbelieveable content something I never thought would be public.

    There are crime and violence in every city and every area,Sheffield was known as Little Chicago in the 1920's due to its heavy ganglang goings,Newcastle,many others.
     
    When younger I found it interesting but now i just find they are all scum bags I much prefer real heros like Martin Bell,Dip Pun or even more the old school boys cheesy music but http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jaEuezvotMc
     
    Not some fat shaven headed coke snorting arrogant bullys,Just IMO of course

    Everyone has been in shape,but not everyone is IN shape,its about where your going not where you have been.

    He always was mate - I never knew him well, but he gave the impression of being an OK bloke, just not one to get on the wrong side of
