C.H.A.V... What does it mean?

A report the other day revealed what chav actually meant and even the kids didnt know the meaning.
Apparently it means...." Council Housed And Violent " and the police have been using the term for many years. Now all of a sudden its come to light and the do gooders are trying to say that it shouldnt be used as its derogatory.

Admitedly i didnt know what it meant but for it to stop being used just because its meaning has come to light is ridiculous.

Its high time that folk stopped playing around with words in fear of offending and started to get back to saying what they mean.

IMO Its far more hypocritical to dance around words than to speak the truth, No wonder the youth of today are beginning to speak a language all of thier own..

I was thinking that too.

Why would you call someone a name if you didn't even know what the name meant?

I don't say chav myself, I say dobber.......and I shall continue to apply the word dobber to anyone I believe to be a dobber.

Maybe we should get posh and refer to them as Richard Craniums. The term CHAV is so out of date anyway. Most of them don't live in council houses

Ok sorry I put that badly. No thats not what I mean at all.
What I should have said is that this meaning has apparently been used by the Police for quite some time, now all of a sudden because the meaning has come to light people are saying that it shouldnt be used anymore. why??
IMO if its been used by the police to catorgorise certain individuals all this time then why shouldnt they keep using it for the same purpose.

Think what Cherokee is trying to say that she didnt realise what the acronym stood for, rather than not knowing what the word meant
