Click on the second link. I donít think it is possible to describe them using words.
Chavs only exist in England. The closest possible equivalent would be the neds of Scotland.

I think this documentary might tell you more about Chavs?

Re: Please refrain from feeding the,

In some sense youth everywhere at every time period could be the equivalent of Chavs. But there are things that are particular to Chavs as apposed to youth culture in other places and time periods.
Firstly and most importantly would be. Chavs like wearing the pattern (Burberry) on the hat in the second image.

If you do a Google image search for the word chav, youíll notice a lot of Burberry.

The second thing particular to them is the hoodie, which they wear when performing the ritual of happy slapping. Which involves beating someone up while recording it on a mobile phone which is then forwarded to friends and strangers or put on the internet for all to view?

I think other things related to being a chav like excessive drinking, mindless pointless violence, and teenage pregnancies are associated with all youth at every time period.

Oh yes, forgot. Chavs hate rockers in general and Goths in particular. They will beat them to a pulp especially if the Goth is a pacifist and refuses to fight back.

I donít really have anything against Chavs. All those I know or have met are generally very respectful to me. But just not to anyone else, including themselves.
I think the violence and abusive language is mainly directed towards their own age range.

Re: Please refrain from feeding the,

So those detestable, vicious, fowl connards actually have a name.

Chavs = Contemptible, Hateful, Abominable, Venomous and Sick.

Otherwise i havn't got anything against them...."it's all part of youth" One day they will grow out of it...... exclaim or will they question
