Meader is a common term in Bristol. Although you need to be careful who you use it around as it refers to someone from a part of Bristol...

shaz, trev, kappa slappa etc... there was a thread on this a couple of months ago... chav seems to have become the industry standard for terming low-life scum nowadays though - breaking through the dialect.

Well, before the advent of the word chav my friend and I invented a name for them. We used to use the prefix Bo, (as in bo selecta- but this was before the program, we truly were visionaries) it works with anything, observe;
"Hahaha, look at that bo-child"
"That bo-guy looks like an idiot with his tracksuit bottoms tucked into his socks"

See? I'm so glad I could finally share that with the world...

It's Kev in our neck of the woods. Hell, we need our own name considering there are so many in Aylesbury!

Yes...I've known of a few people from there and most have lived up to the stereotype. Or they rebel it and go for the opposite trend...goth.

Didn't the term chav originate in the use of CHeltenham AVerage, thereby referring to a type of person from which girls at a certain public school were taught to stay well away?
