Buckfast Tonic Wine, m'lud.
The recipe for the Tonic wine is attributed to the original French monks who
settled at the Abbey in the 1880's. Base wines from Spain, known as
mistellas, were imported and to these were added the tonic ingredients
according to the old recipe.
Buckfast Valley is a synonym for Lower Clyde valley, Lanarkshire
Lazy Guide to Net Culture: Inter-neds:
Evil twisted thugs are using the internet to brag about their violent
sprees. And the police are POWERLESS to stop them. For the teenage tearaways
of Glasgow's notorious street gangs have used hi-tech trickery to hide their
identities. They BOAST about their drug-fuelled violence. Show SICK pictures
of their battlegrounds. And openly FLAUNT weapons, bottles of Buckfast and
faces full of plukes.
Tracked down by this reporter, one young thug confessed: "No, I'm sorry. I
think you must have confused me with someone else. Can I interest you in a
copy of the Watchtower?" Sobbed the guilty hooligan: "Mmm, that website
looks like a wind-up to me."
A top Tory politician has called for them all to be birched, then hanged,
then birched some more. Then hanged, birched, birched, locked up and birched
some more. A spokesman for the SSP said that these misunderstood
practitioners of working class culture should be celebrated.
Finally, with very few exceptions, the pictures on the sites feature one of
three key elements: the digitus impudicus, Buckfast and the Old Firm.
What is about cameras that every time one is produced it makes these

They appear to spend their time at these hallowed locations smoking spliffs,
drinking large quantities of bucky, pulling silly poses robbed from Gangsta
Rap album covers, drawing little " Menchies " on walls and indulging in a
spot of violence against neighbouring gangs.
Upon entering the site, the viewer is greeted by a suprisingly sophisticated
but rather irritating flash animation. This bunch of Neds seem to like
making decorative circles of buckfast bottles dubbed 'BUCKFAST HENGE' and
then posing in them. Others are pictured with various weapons including a
baseball bat and a samuari sword.
This bunch of lads are rather lovable, they have even taken the time to
compose an ode to Buckfast, they do however claim to be the 'hardest' in
Fife so be warned!.
You are my Tonic my Tonic Wine, You make me happy of Friday nights and
Saturdays. We love to drink the Tonic wine ,so please don't take ma Bucky
MD 20/20! This is common neddish underage friday night juice. This drink
comes right up there with buckfast in the ned stakes. It's likely that this
young ned was "pure buckled" and trying to "fire in" to the three nedettes
behind him. Did he get lucky? E-mail me, young ned, and I will let people
know. This is a good example of what a "wee cheeky ned" should look like.
The ned in the big berghaus jaiket on the right is showing signs of being a
non ned, as he has removed the label from the groups bottle of Buckfast,
perhaps showing some inner embarrassment of his ned status. Buckfast is
designed to damage the neds brains early enough to get them hooked into the
ned sector of society for the rest of their childhood and probably a bit of
their adulthood, and in extreme cases, all of their adulthood. It has been
brewed by Devon Monks for many years now using the finest grapes du
