Those 2 I haven't heard before but others might know them. We also don't bother beating around the bush and saying "Gary".

EDIT - I've never heard anyone say brown hatter but if I did, I'd understand what they meant. I wouldn't get iron though.

I added Ginger later, and this one is definitely the main one used in my part of London. Heard that one?

No, but keep these coming.
Use Ginger in a sentence, please.
Also - taking it up the Gary - I assume there's a famous "Gary" who has a last name that rhymes with ass or something?

Gary Glitter

use of Ginger - exactly like queer, eg noun and adjective

He's a bit ginger, what a ginger!


Some more, then I'm dry:

Rear Gunner
Shirt Lifter
Batty boy
Arse Bandit
lover of the Bourneville Boulevard (Bourneville is a type of dark chocolate)
sht stabber
bum chums (for 2 gay men together)
left footer (also used for catholics)
bent as a nine-bob note
bent as a butcher's hook
fudge nudger
Also the adjective 'screaming' often goes in front of bender
'You screaming bender!'
