A person of liberal politics and crusty, pseudo-alternative clothing. Common in London. Frequents Glastonbury, WOMAD and similar festivals. Would like to be a new-age traveller, but prefers the security of a well-paid job with pension. Passionate reader of 'The Guardian'. Professes to have 'leftie' politics, but is actually fascistic and very intolerant, especially as regards to victims of crime, bullying and abuse, blaming the victim rather than the offender. Origin: Billy Baked Bean, a well-known narcoleptic and dipsomaniac in London, who shouts from the rooftops about the Battle of the Beanfield being the defining moment in class struggle in the twentieth century.
'Did you see all those beans in the Albert last night, quaffing their pints and talking about Tibet?'
