    Pikey = twat

    Twat = wanker

    Wanker = tosser

    Tosser = retarded slag

    Retarded slag = pikey

    Chav - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Chav is a term applied to certain young people in the United Kingdom. The stereotypical "chav"—known also as a charver in Yorkshire and North East England is an aggressive teenager, typically unemployed or of white working class background,who repeatedly engages in anti-social behaviour,such as street drinking, drug abuse and rowdiness, or other forms of juvenile delinquency.



    Burberry is a clothing company whose products became associated with the "chav" stereotype. Burberry's appeal to "chav" fashion sense is a sociological example of prole drift, where an up-market product begins to be consumed en masse by a lower socio-economic group. Burberry has argued that the brand's popular association with "chav" fashion sense is linked to counterfeit versions of the clothing. "They’re yesterday's news", stated Stacey Cartwright, the CEO of Burberry. "It was mostly counterfeit, and Britain accounts for less than 10% of our sales anyway."

    The company has taken a number of steps to distance itself from the stereotype. It ceased production of its own branded baseball cap in 2004 and has scaled back the use of its trademarked checkered/tartan design to such an extent that it now only appears on the inner linings and other very low-key positions of their clothing. It has also taken legal action against high-profile infringements of the brand. In August 2006, a company introducing tuk-tuk vehicles into the south coast city of Brighton, England named one the "Chavrolet", which had it painted in the distinctive Burberry tartan. However, the company soon had to withdraw this vehicle when Burberry threatened proceedings for breach of copyright.

    Nah, he'd have found new "family and friends" within 48 hours of arriving at Swampy - guaranteed!

    The British variety of "white trash". Living in housing projects instead of trailer parks...

    Of course, being Brits, they're funny. I guess an example illustrates it best, see here:

    Fair play to him, you think he'd have been a bit more assertive and learned how to tell people to fook off. !!

    cheers all. I see now, just like the love story between "la racaille" and Lacoste in France.

    What a moron.

    Drapes himself in gold, drives around in flash cars in turdsville, then wonders why all of the other chavs in town leach off him. If you spend your time living in a rubbish bin, smelling of shit, then you will get covered in flies..

    He obviously never left his shitty little comfort zone too much otherwise he would have discovered Thailand - and lost him money sooner..

    With that amount of money, who in their right mind wouldn't have gone to some sort of investement banker and put of £5M of it in super safe investments or endowments, government bonds, gold whatevter to give him a background income to accumulate until he's pissed the other £4M up the wall.

    cheers

    ^I think the answer can be found in the key words in your post, "who in their right mind".

    If you Google his name you will find some video footage of his wrecked "Mansion" which is now up for sale, it shows just how this Muppet and his so called friends lived, I cannot post a link I'm afraid, I am at work and our servers (or the filters) say no (computer says no)

    I agree with a poster way back yonder. Why should we pay for this TOTAL peeenass now. He had the means to take care of himself (and family) for the rest of his life and party like a cvnt too. I know people with that sort of money here and they drink and whore like looneys and it does nt even dent their stash.
    Do you know what nemesis means?

    My apologies I can't remember the quote exactly but it's along the lines of "nobody ever lost money underestimating the intelligence of the British public."

    (Of whom I am one I might cheerfully add.)


    Cheers
