    Pfft, where did I say that it was ok? I said it wasn't used just by private school students,it isn't used to describe all state school students and it doesn't "apply" to all state school students. I get the feeling from you that you have this negative view of a huge group of people that you don't want to let go of so you try to reassure the view with every negative possible.

    Not at all, I know a few private school kids through playing rugby and have got on perfectly well with every single one so I have no prejudice towards private school students nor have I a dislike towards people who happen to be better off than me. You can't accuse me of having a prejudice I don't actually have.
    I am having issues with the things you have said and the things others have said on this thread and am not trying to re-assert any prejudice that you believe I have.
    If you ask me it sounds like you are attempting to accuse me of holding a prejudice towards you in order to provide me with a motive to pick apart your arguments and wild generalisations.
    I'll re-state that for you: I have NO prejudice towards private school students as a whole, I happen to be irritated by ones on this thread that talk utter garbage, like yourself.

    I just get that impression because you assumed I was justifying the word chav when all I did was mention it as in verbatim. What beliefs do I hold that you think are garbage? In this conversation, the only things i've said are:
    1.Chav is not a term invented by private school students or only used by them.
    2.Private school students aren't all stuck up snobs
    3.Defend the generalisations you've made saying we're all trained to think we're above everyone else

    To clarify, no I don't think I'm above state school students (having been one myself) I don't hate the working class (having been one myself) I'm not a snob and if there is anything I hate most in the world it's people making incorrect generalisations or false assumptions about groups of people.

    No way! My dad went to private school, and so do I. However, my dad came to England from Kenya when he was 16. His parents invested all their money into his education, and it worked. Immigrants benefit from them hugely, as it is hard for them to get into the state system.

    No, they shouldn't. People have the freedom to spend their money as they see fit.
