do you know what?
where i live, yeah there are chavs in the poorer areas, but its also crawling with scene kids, indie kids, preps and possibly every single other stereotype you want to fit people into.
the chavs are generally an irritation, but yobbish behaviour isnt confined to this particular stereotype. and not every single person who has poor clothing taste because of the area they live in act like louts. i think its ridiculous writing off everybody and anybody who doesn't dress the same way as other people. sure, i wouldn't probably hang around with that group, but there's nothing wrong with them existing.
and britain shouldn't be defined by chavs. there are so many other reasons why you can dislike your country, but if that is the only reason you can think of, then surely you can't hate the country that much. you aren't forced to spend time with these chavs and if you are sometimes, you aren't always.
i'm half swedish, so i can compare it with sweden, and yeah, i'd say sweden is a lovely country, and given the choice, if i could move everybody i love over there then i would. but i think what makes a country great is your friends, and the people you like around you. i would never want to move away from them because they are what make my life great.
this forum should be renamed to chavs, because the whole forum has been focussed on them. chavs don't define england.

You are so right...Chavs is not a representation of England...

Personally, I love living where I live...which is London...It is an awesome place...
Yeah there are crime but so is everywhere else...I love the rock scene here...
Its all about Punk and emo these days...YAH!

I like it here. Sure, it's not a perfect country but then again what is? How can you define perfection when everybody has a different ideal? I don't mind the weather and global warming is giving us beautiful summers (yay an up side ^_^) and snowy winters like the old days. Chavs where I live are fine, just a bit of a pain when they get loud. Education system at the moment isn't bad but apparently it's going to be changed to "themed subjects" soon which I don't agree with.

Bottom line, England is my home, it's where I've been brought up, and I think I turned out okay ^_^ It's not so bad :P

EDIT: and if you wanna get in touch with CR Brits, here ya go
