The 'Chav it all' society......

Large numbers of police forces are planning to cut thousands of officers despite the threat of a recession-driven surge in crime and disorder. Representatives from dozens of police forces contacted by The Times last night gave a grim picture of falling numbers and “significant and painful” cuts.

Who will benefit from this? Only the feckless, the workshy, the thieves, the least productive members of our society. Those with no savings will have their mortgage paid by the tax payer, those with no inclination to work will have all their expenses paid by the tax payer.

We have a Prime Minister who can find time to make 'several' phone calls to support the MCann's, Chav parents who left their children alone in a hotel room whilst they went drinking; we have a Justice Secretary who finds time to concern himself with the consumption of the marriage of that arch Chav, Jade Goody; we have a Chancellor of the Exchequer whose initial response to the financial crisis was to encourage us to buy a new plasma TV; we have a Foreign Secretary who arranges a £160,000 Gulfstream jet to bring home a terror suspect; we have a Home Secretary whose idea of being 'more selective about those who come into the country' is to curb the number of highly skilled foreign workers coming to Britain;  we are governed by a Labour Party whose idea of PR is to support a ranting Chav in the form of the disingenuous Derek Draper to 'present' its image; we have a media so obsessed with Chav approval that the cocaine snorting Kate Moss is deified and Gail Trimble's intellectual prowess vilified.

Everywhere you turn, it is the basest, the shabbiest, the unwholesome, the festering unproductive sores who are supported and celebrated.

The 'Chav' cult has eaten our culture alive, infantilised us, consumed our ability to think critically of serious matters, rewarded the feckless and demonised the productive. Those 'baby boomers' amongst us have been fortunate, we grew up in an age of unprecedented peace and prosperity.

I fear for the young of today.  The social disorder we will see this summer will truly be the end of society as we knew it.

I suspect before then. Thing is will we know about it, as the BBC finds more "victims" like Binyam Mohamed to worship endlessly?

Great post. Depressing but so true. I really hope it kicks off in the summer.

We were on about this yesterday, from a slightly different perspective.


On Sunday, as anyone resident in the United Kingdom will know, the reality TV star and terminal cancer victim, Jade Goody married her handsome, if troubled, younger lover Jack Tweed in a no-expenses spared ceremony and reception, with the setting provided by rock superstar Elton John and the gown donated free by Harrods owner Mohamed al Fayed.

With the national media crowding around, straining for the chance to catch a glimpse of the nation's latest favourite celebrity couple, the proceedings took place behind closed doors, this being due to the fact that the publication rights have been sold to OK Magazine and the "Living" TV channel, as the dying star seeks to earn enough money in her final months to support her two young sons, by a previous younger lover, after her death

In the course of what it seems will be a tragically short life, Jade Goody has, within her homeland, joined that tiny group of celebrities instantly known by a single Christian name. If you mention "Kate" a any number of possibilities spring to mind, Kate Winslet's Oscar triumph notwithstanding. However, mention "Jade" in Britain and everyone knows who you mean.

The degree to which this young woman's plight has touched the nation's heart is demonstrated not only the fact that her photograph no adorns on the front pages of even our more serious newspapers, but the Justice minister has seen fit to waive the 7:00 PM curfew requirements of her grooms parole conditions, enabling him to spend his wedding night with his new bride.

There is speculation that Jade may agree to allow her final moments to be filmed, in order to further secure her children's future, and if she does, the purchaser can be assured of a large and tearful audience for the end of what must be, by any standards, a truly bizarre life.
It is even more bizarre when one considers that it is only two short years since these same newspapers now gushing with praise for Jade's courage and paying a fortune for a single photograph of her, were indulging in a hate campaign targeted at the destruction of this same young woman, who, to a hack, they referred to as "Britain's most hated woman".

For it was then, in 2007, what that same media declared Jade guilty of one of the greatest crimes of our age.

Appearing on that year's Celebrity Big Brother, Jade, the then nineteen year old Jack Tweed, who, together with her mother, had accompanied Jade into the house, and two other young female contestants of a similar socio-economic background decided to take exception to a fourth female contestant, from a different socio-economic background, whom they apparently considered to be, false, "stuck-up" and altogether too pleased with herself.

As any fan of reality TV will know, this is not an uncommon occurrance in such an artificial and claustrophobic situation, where personal likes and dislikes become exaggerated in an environment which is uniquely conducive to conflict and the taking of sides. It was certainly not the first time that such a antagonism has arisen on Big Brother.

However, what made this conflict different in the eyes of the media, and the ever vigilant guardians of social cohesion, was that whilst Jade, Tweed and their two companions were white, the contestant whom they had taken against was the strikingly beautiful, but clearly rather pleased with herself, Bollywood star Shilpha Shetty.

I sincerely hope you’re wrong on this one. Although I totally fear you’re right. Here in Belgium, people behave like sheep or should I say muttons, as there is no protest whatsoever going on around the very nasty, inefficient and yet outrageously expensive governments (yes we have several). But I guess that once it will flame up, this is going to be terrible. Of course, I have guns, but I really hope I won’t need them.

You couldn't make it up could you?

Police predicting a summer of rage, but numbers of oficers available to deal with the problem dropping.

THe conspiracy theorists will have a field day with those stats.

For instance, just who will fill the void when it all kicks off? Do we call in Blackwater?

Of course this may all be a sound fiscal policy,because ID cards and the Home Office Database projects will reduce the need for Police to be on the streets. Just by themselves they will reduce crime, send illegals home, etc.

A very good post.

The things that are stopping it 'kicking off' are:

- a comfortable lifestyle


- a realistic hope of a comfortable lifestyle

And for most of us this still holds true. On principle it should have 'kicked off' a long while ago - well, perhaps not. In the manner of marches and resistance against things such as the closure of grammar schools, the BBC broadcasting Gerry Springer Opera.

These marches did happen but not to a large enough scale as the majority sat back saying, "Yeah - but what can ya doooo ???"

Too comfortable, see ?

Real hardship is the only thing that will get this country back on track. No wonder Nu Lab is so fixated about stoking the housing 'boom' back into life.

If I lose my job (not unlikely) I won't be sitting at home twiddling my thumbs or working on a farm for £2 per hour. I'll be down the DHSS demanding what my chav neighbours have enjoyed for years for sitting on their arses laughing at me while I turned out at 2am in the morning for a ten hour shift.

And if I don't get that ???

it's either banned or compulsory said...

I hope it kicks off big time too and that it reaches the suburbs. It will start when the chavs and other scumbags find their scrounge tockens arriving late and then bouncing.
Our Armed forces are 184,000 strong. We scratch around for 10,000 shared between Afghanistan and an airfield outside Basra; what are all the others doing ?

Antipholus Papps said...

I don't think anyone can reasonably descibe the McCanns as 'Chavs'! They are surely the epitome of middle class? Hence the exposure.

Maddy said...

It was Mummy, with cuddle cat on the wardrobe.

Anna Raccoon said...

The McCann's?

Middle class?

Far from it, good Glasgow and Liverpudlian working class.

Anonymous said...

Make your mind up sonny, yesterday it was middle class voters about to take to the streets, today its chavs, perhaps you could introduce the two groups to each other? The way things are going much of middle England will be chavs themselves soon, and no you can't keep a pony on a sink estate.

Bloody marvellous post Sir! Bravo!

The latest Public Accounts Committee report indicates that 75% of working age adults do not have basic literary skills (Level 2 - an average GCSE pass).

I wonder if there's a link....

Yeah? You sure?

Once it kicks off, someone will have to fill the gap. ACPO Private Police force Ltd perhaps? More PCSO brownshirts?

Katabasis said...

More brownshirts is my guess.
