"not the ones you brought me into ballot once to..." "not the ones you brought me into ballot once to..." I can't understand what he meant by this at 2:07 and what it means to "be given a right going-over"(maybe it means tax-inspection?) thank you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ERs9393q9s

He is saying 'Not the ones who brought me into Balham once.' - Balham is a place in London, the tax collectors he is talking about probably took him to the city hall or council. 'A right going-over' in this case would be a tax inspection, but more generally it can mean anything that is done thoroughly - even if you were in a fight and lost you might say, 'Yeah, he gave me a right going-over.'
