Not sure if this is unique to Coventry, but there is a local phrase which I have never heard anywhere else. To demand money or property with menaces (mugging): "I'm taxing your jacket" = give me your jacket or it will not go well with you! Anyone else been unfortunate enough to have heard this one?
