Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gypsy Jane (Paperback)
Jane Lee is definitely totally deluded. This book is more a work of fiction than a true life story. She calls herself "Gypsy" - she was no more a gypsy than anyone else. Her Dad may have come from gypsy stock, but she was brought up in Silvertown, and was a cockney kid, the same as all the other kids. She rattled on and on about "honour" "loyalty" and how much she would "die" for certain people, especially her son. Well, she loved her son so much, yet she wasn't there for most of his childhood. She spent most of his precious years getting into scrapes and doing trips to France buying beer illegally, and being locked up in prison. For what? All the money she made out of her dodgy deals, didn't improve her lifestyle, after all the thousands she was supposed to have made, she still lived in a Council flat! So - what did she gain from her criminal acts? I feel sad for her son, who was left to his own devices from the age of 15. Some mother she turned out to be, thank goodness she only had one child. As for being the most dangerous woman in Britain - sheer poppycock!

I doubt that it would be good enough to qualify as 'poppycock', as that is derived from a Dutch expression meaning 'soft ordure' and this tale seems to be more like 'botty gravy' - the sort of poppycock that bubbles through one's underwear and trickles down one's legs.
