It's Saturday night at The Albion, a proper East End boozer and the unofficial home of the English Protection Army. Get your names in early, it's karaoke night and it's gonna be big.
Little brother Jayson's out front smashing it on the mic, but behind the scenes, leadership of the EPA is falling apart. Paul knows the public won't listen to a bunch of hooligans but his deputy Kyle wants a fight. Christine is sure that the key to success is the company you keep and the language you speak.
This is England. And it's time to take it back.
