Anti Social Behavior Order = ASBO

Martin Amis' hilarious novel, "Lionel Asbo", is about the exploits of a born miscreant who might well have been Alan Sillitoe's famous Borstal 'Runner' had he festered to full immaturity in the 21st century. Lionel may or may not be lonely, but he is surely London's last laugh, (as Yossarian was Pianosa's).
