I have just learned about this phenomenon from a friend who recently returned from a visit to England. For a brief few moments, I was blissfully unaware of the extent in which white trash had invaded the nation which hath borne Shakespeare, Churchill, J.R.R. Tolkien, Sir Isaac Newton, and Lord Byron just to name a few.

HOW DID YOU FUCKERS LET THIS HAPPEN IN YOUR HOUSE?!?

I mean, seriously, Texas is home to an astonishing amount of uneducated, white trash, redneck, hip-hop abusing, wifebeater-wearing trailer hoodlums, but this takes the motherfucking cake right here:

MTS2_FifthAce2007_656466_chav-mobile.jpg

I don't pretend to understand this...this occurrence of banality and uniform douchebaggery and most of my brain never will; I just want to know one thing:

What's your explanation for this, young lady?!?

Darth Waiter on

And unfortunately this isn't a "minority" thing, chavs are in the fuckign majority here and you can't go anywhere without seeing groups of them doing fuck all when they should be working or going to school or something.

    British Streets

    Yeah my year had the honour of being the year that caused the most expensive property damage up till that point. £1400 I believe it was. Although I imagine that the title has since been passed on.

    It must have been a culture shock for you to see UK youth street culture because of course in South Africa you don't actually have any youth street culture because no one hangs out on the streets unless they want to be shot.

    Yup, before we left SA we lived in a rented place while my parents sorted out their tickets and stuff, it had bars on both sides of the windows, and to get to the front door you had to open a locked gate to enter a sort of cage thing, then there was a security gate to even get to the front door itself. Household security is a goddamn goldmine over there : b

    chavs

    what can you do

    You can kill them with motherfucking fire is what you can do; and no, Keith, "hicks" doesn't describe this. This is unrestrained wannabe-ism at it's worst. "Hicks" come from a farm. Rednecks live in a rural area that borders on the suburban. Wannabe's...well, like I said:

    FIRE.

    So you're saying we can kill it with fire?

    Fucking years and years and year. I came to the UK 10 years ago and it was a very firmly entrenched culture then.

    And ascot sums it up pretty well, they dress the same, buy the same cars, like the same kind of girls, speak exactly the goddamn same (badly) and they dot he same stupid shit to their cars.

    I've known about them for as long as I've been on the interbutts, and I first interbutted in the early '90s.

    Ratios notwithstanding, Big D, there is no excuse for banality.

    None.

    I'm just saying that it shouldn't be a surprise.

    My uncle lives in one of those little housing estates with it's own electric fencing and gate on the front. When I stayed there I was in the caravan in the garage. Needless to say that I didn't feel quite safe enough.

    We have these people here too, I guess everybody has their own variety

    They've always been called bogans or derros where I'm from, and they generally hang around train stations and usually have an extra tall can of cheap pre-mixed whiskey in their hands

    I don't see much of them now that I've stopped needing to take public transport anywhere

    Fucking years. Only it used to just be kids hanging around the market squares in little market towns drinking, fighting and listening to hiphop and hardcore dance music because there was fuck all else to do. Now it just seems to be anyone who takes pride in being an illiterate fuckwit.

    That's not really the issue.
    I think the fact that they're rewarded by having children at 18, having no desire/intention to work is far worse.
    We're not talking about aloof youngsters sitting in the park gettin' high, it's an entire generation of single parent teenage families who live off state benefits (supplemented by drug dealing and benefit fraud of course!)

    It's worse in the 'burbs. It's an everywhere culture where I am but twenty minutes by train into London and it's different. Of course London has it's own variants but it's strangely somehow different and I think a little classier.

    It's like people periodically get this big revelation that humans are categorically shit-eating beasts who happen to be able to use advanced technology that has accumulated over millennia. I'm pretty convinced that we're like 10% smarter than apes, but that this 10% crosses a kind of critical-mass threshold where we accumulate and pass on knowledge and build on it slightly, largely based on superior communication, whereas apes fall just short. So we're basically like slightly-smarter apes, except that now we have nukes and spaceships.

    Fuck it, I'll just post the song.

    100% accurate

    Yeah London is ... different all right. They have the typical chav in droves there too, but not so much in the centre of London because it actually costs money to go there. But if you head out towards edgware, clapton and those places they are fucking everywhere. But they aren't the only ones, when I lived in Hackney one of the guys living in my block used to walk around with a masonry nail through his nose, just because "it makes him feel like a whole person" D:

    Although to add a sense of balance, I was at a Rancid show last week and halfway through the support act a woman came on to talk about a charity she had started since her daughter was murdered in a happy slapping. The main message of her talk was that it doesn't matter if you're a chav, a punk or a goth etc you should be able to live without the fear of having the shit kicked out of you because of the way you look. immediately after this quite noble and actually pretty inspiring little thing the douchebag leader singer of the band started to talk about how the crowd should go and beat up the first chav they see after leaving the concert.

    Do any other UKers get this sense of claustrophobia when you walk down a street? Like there is an intangible essence of violence in the air even when there is no one around?

    I went to Devon last year and it was just not there at all. I kept expecting it but it wasn't there. It was very refreshing. I was wondering if it's a regional thing or just me going mad.
