    Please help me transcript this 20-second long video (British accent)

    Hi! Could you please help me transcript the following 20-second long video. Unfortunately, British accent somewhat confuses me.

    British Gas GTA - YouTube

    No wonder you had trouble with it! The only parts I could make out were the naughty words, like "you bastard" and "blow you to hell."

    We'll need someone who has lived closer to that accent than I have to make out the rest.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I lived for 53 years in England, but I hardly understood a word of what that woman was saying.

    That makes me feel a bit better. She clearly is enjoying her alter ego's exploits, though.

    The first part is more difficult to understand than the last.

    Here are some fragments, in chronological order:

    1) You've got it.


    2) Yeh British Gas bastards good, I'm going to blow you to hell, wankers.



    3) That's the end of you lot.

    Come on British teachers, you can do better, especially because you may know what she is talking about.

    "Hello, what do you do for a living? Work for British Gas, do you? You wanker! {My best guess-->} I'll give you've brought my bills up bastards back. You take that. You won't put {No idea}. Bang! One for you and one for you. I'll give you one as well. You come here! I'll get you, you bastard. Come back!

    I'll give you central heating. You want central heating, baby, you've got it.

    Take my f***ing money out the wall, will you? Scum! You won't get up all my money. No! Gas bastard! Scum, you're all scum! Take that! Take that! Where's the next bastard?

    There you are, you bastards, we finally found you. British Gas bastards! Good! I'm going to blow you to hell! Wankers. Wankers! This is it! {No idea}. That's it!

    {Lots of yelling} Die, die, die! That's it. That's the end of you lot."

    That's all I could get.
