Default Britain going to the scrap yard - a horrible place to live.

Now, i have thought this for a while now. I have certainly noticed a huge increase in it, and its not nice, in fact it is spreading so fast, and is so popular - that i am going to leave Britain..its a sh*t place to live now.

I am talking about:

http://www.chavscum.co.uk/

You just don’t get it anywhere as badly as you in Britain. It pisses my off !!!!

Ok - so i am posting this with humorous undertones - but at the same time, with an equal helping of seriousness too!

Places, that used to be nice, are no long nice, they are our future...my future - and its not looking good. If your not British, then you might think, "well, every country has it's problems" - but seriously, these people are vermin!

They're taking Britain to the dogs!!! Everywhere you go, I mean everywhere, they will be found, in numbers. Stealing, fighting, punching policemen, beating people up, shouting as if they all come from the East of London (like they've never been to school - which they probably haven't), just hanging around being d*cks.

I live in a relatively affluent area, however, its only 40 minutes from Central London - and it’s spreading. When I walk up the high street, I have these kind of people pulling wheel spins in the middle of the road, fighting in the street, and generally being pikies!

Take a look at the site, read what it has to say, and most importantly check out Chave of the month section. I’m serious here – it seems like one big joke, but anyone who lives in Britain and has any sense, does not take this as a joke!!!

I am leaving Britain – its going to the dogs, its full of these people, and its only set to get worse. I am serious ! I want out !

Few quick (very funny too) links:

http://www.chavscum.co.uk/howto.html

full of people like this http://www.chavscum.co.uk/images/20jan/lewis.jpg
http://www.chavscum.co.uk/images/jan002.jpg

I hate it! I hate them! I'm leaving the UK - its going down !

Regards, snapple

i think maybe your just showing your age snaps.... it's a new generation.

same thing was said about folks who first started listening to rock n roll and was said about the folks who started in with jazz.


just saw an amusing article decrying the loss of 'serious' music... (jazz was one of them)... but back when jazz was new, all those folks were gonna go straight to hell and it was gonna ruin society... maybe it all did.

That’s an extremely valid point tg, and it's one that i like to keep at the back of my mind. I tell myself its a phase, don’t worry snapple, its fine - but for some reason the voice of "this time it's different" keeps on coming back to haunt me.

Well put, who knows, how can you measure a thing like that?

My criteria is that no government in the UK before has ever bought out, spent so much money on, and focused so heavily on the 'yob culture' within society, and how to solve it.

Through this, and a few other (more anecdotal) criteria, i feel that this time its different, worse really. Just look at all the government legislation bought out and schemes implemented to solve this epidemic, perhaps soon to be endemic.

I agree. It really is getting bad over here.
I wouldn't worry about it though, chances are they will all get wiped out by this....

Whilst me, I have a cunning plan to survive that involves several pairs of seal-skin pants and a tube of deep heat...

I am very glad that you agree Mort, it is getting really bad over here. Got anymore plans to solve it? I mean, how much does it piss you off? Think i am over reacting? I think i am safe in my own knowledge that when i walk into town in a minute, I shall reaffirm my hatred for them!

Oh you use a tube do you Mort? I've only ever used the spray variety - found it much quicker to apply. I just tend to forget to spray it in a ventilated area, end up crawling out on my hands and knees...whilst burning up.

To survive the new ice age, I have a plan that involves a slightly more complex physiological adaptation. I have plans to allow my body to hibernate, knowledge that certain mammals can lower their core body temperature to below freezing, and not eat for up to 7 months, has lead me to believe that this would be the best course of action.

So when your bored, because everyone else is dead (and happy because all the chav's have been exterminated) - please don't disturb what looks a human pretending to be some sort of field mouse.

Either that or might just inject myself with huge amounts of Noradrenaline directly into the blood stream.

Regards, snapple

- Let me get this straight. The world would be freezing around you, and you just plan to go on a normal Saturday night out?

A while back I used to work in a record shop (a chain called MVC) -they have a free membership system, which means that customers' home addresses are on computer, and so when they buy stuff you can see where they live.

The shop is in a really lovely city in England, but like everywhere, it has a couple of rough red-neck areas where all the chav-scum live and hang-out (when they're not hanging around by the bus station in their Ford Escorts with the tinted windows and obligatory spoiler, listening to swing at full volume and chatting up 12 year old girls).

Anyway, on quiet days we used to play this game to stem the boredom. As soon as customers walked through the door, we had to guess which area of the city they lived in judging only by appearance - not just with chavs but for all types of people.
I'd say we had a 90% success rate.

It really amazes me. Often you can tell much more from the face than the clothing, although the clothing usually solidifies things. I find that really really interesting. I wonder if/how people can grow to resemble their social status or personality. We've all seen posh people who just look intrinsically posh, scumbags that look like scum, mean people who look mean, etc

I guess it comes down to the old *nature vs. nurture* argument.

...but also, what about conditions like Down's-syndrome where people all display the same facial characteristics?
Ah tis a fascinating subject methinks.

Can anyone tell I've got some time to kill this morning?

reminds me of a song I heard some years ago from a band called Blutjungs (bloodboys)

"Ich weiss nicht wo sie wohnen," (I don't know where they live,)
"was sie am leben hält" (what keeps them alive)
"Ich sehe in Visionen" (I have visions)
"die Invasion der Welt" (of the world being invaded)

"Sie tragen bunte Mützen" (they wear coloured caps)
"auf ausrasiertem Haar" (on shaved hair)
"Sie fahren auf bunten Brettern" (they drive on colored boards)
"doch ich stoppe die Gefahr" (but I stop this danger)

refrain
"Und ich schlage" (and I batting)
"mit seinem skateboard auf ihn ein" (with his skateboard on him)
"friss dein brett und friss die rollen" (eat your board and eat the wheels)
"und hör endlich auf zu schreihen" (and stop crying)
...

The song is about someone who got left by his girlfriend (she says her new friend is less brutal) and now he is on the way to a supermarket and his empty bottles break on the floor, because of a skateboarder
