somewhere where good manners, social boundaries and respect for others seems to be ignored?
Lets make a list...

May i be as bold as to say, right now, this thread?
Its not nice to call people names
I learnt that at school.
C. H. A. V.
Council House And Violent.
So I've heard.
And Stephen raises an interesting paradox - in recognising poor manners and lack of respect, are you demonstrating poor manners and lack of respect?

Chav-est? Surely chaviest? And Stephen raises an interesting paradox - in recognising poor manners and lack of respect, are you demonstrating poor manners and lack of respect?
Actually thats not what Im saying.
Im saying this
As a "bookworm" i hope you have at least heard of it?
Those who use this the word Chav, like to say that its not just the white working class, on council estates, its anyone who is a, b, or c. If only that was true. Its a self-hating, class-ridden, devisive, odious little word. Not worthy of anyone who claims to be respectful of others, and intollerant of bad behaviour.
Yes ladies and gentlemen my left/liberal wings are out
Who wants to take this Essex Boy on?
Hahah love a good scrap!
Boston, Lincolnshire innit!
I heard an explanation of the word CHAV coming from a contraction of CHeltenham AVerage, so possibly the Gloucestershire town is high on the list!
I expect most regions have their claims to the word. I was under the impression it originated from Chatham.
I can't imagine anyone here has done a comprehensive nationwide survey, so I guess this will just be a list of places near where people live, that they like to look down on.
This was done a lot better a while back: the original Crap Towns.
I see where Stephen is coming from, and I have the book "Chavs" at home waiting to be read, but I've always associated the term not with the working class but with the badly-behaved and antisocial element within the lower social order. Or whatever you want to call the less well-off, deprived, etc. From all accounts it's a thought-provoking book and it's next on my list.
"Who wants to take this Essex Boy on?"
I say I say I say! What's the difference between Essex Boy and Essex Girl?
Essex Girl has a higher sperm count!
