Once upon a ti-etc. there was a nice lad called Ricky Whittington, who lived somewhere that isn't London. Frustrated by the lack of social and economic opportunities in not-London, he put all his possessions into a handkerchief-tied-to-a-stick and set off to is-London with his (talking; get on board) Cat, who was a li'l prick. Ricky soon learns that the streets are not paved with gold, they're overrun by rats (which represent disenfranchisement, political disillusionment, economic instability, alienation etc.) and that London isn't a welcoming place for a young person who makes the bold decision of moving there(/here) without first having been born to rich parents.
