Default Silent Biker VS Chav

I totally do not understand half the comments nor the overarching social dynamic. However I think it certainly makes a case for calm and restrained until the time not to be...

I'd be happy to translate any key points Derek.

And it's meant to be a comment on 'Rotten Britain' and the general degeneration of society. The streets are awash with knife wielding, binge drinking teenagers, anti-social, abusive misfits and paedophiles.

Or so our media tells us. Who am I to argue with that?

Glad he lamped the little bastard though.

Chav is just one in a long line of derogatory names for people who I guess would be classed as white trash. It just seems to have really been taken to heart over here in the last 7-8 years.

Yob, Kevin (apparently all such people used to be called Kevin or Sharon), manger (pronounced mang - ER), Chav etc.

Lots of sportswear for the unsporting, lots of Burberry.

I've seen that bit in the etymology elsewhere:

Many folk etymologies have sprung up around the word. These include the backronym "Council Housed And Violent",[3] and the suggestion that pupils at Cheltenham Ladies' College and Cheltenham College used the word to describe the young men of the town ("Cheltenham Average").[8][not in citation given][10]

I went to Cheltenham College and I'd never heard the word until it started getting used in the media.

Hate the expression because it's just an 'I'm better than them' word.

Still, there is some utter scum living in this country.

I never did any research on it. Just read some of the comments on the video and the article that it was linked to.

I really could not understand how someone, anyone could ever feel like they have the right to come up to a house an accost a person the way that guy did. I didn't know if there was previous bad blood or if that was the end result of a protestant / catholic kind of feud (that btw is a total generalization!).

The other crazy thing I saw out of Great Britain just recently was two drunk guys, who were described I think as hooligans saw some guys dressed up as girls and just unloaded on them. Unfortunately for them the crossdressers were cage fighters on their way to a stag party.

Really truly cracked me up.
