The sexual predator travels a long way to check out the unsuspecting native ladies. He is part of a brotherhood of Asian, American and African males. Liquorice invaders catch the number 50 bus on their way to a gathering in a local home. A pimiento Streatham honey salivates at the thought of getting her freak on with one of these unfamiliar Harlequins. She pictures the lusty rugby players carrying the same name. Black and red meet. No foreplay necessary. She notices a post-coital stink. This lady looks for her oyster card and makes her way to the clap clinic.
