English Meaning :
A Carry Out / Cargo
Carry Out / Cargo
Neds buy all their shopping from the off-sales and cargo is their word for a ‘carry out’ or ‘Judas Iscariot’. A typical week’s cargo is 40 bags of crisps, 200 fags, 60 cans of lager and 10 bottles of Buckie. If money is really tight a Ned can survive without the crisps.
