'Chav bashing shows class hatred'
Chav - a term synonymous with Little Britain's Vicky Pollard and used to abuse the working class by middle and upper class Brits according to Tom Hampson in a report to the Fabian Society. It's deeper than this though as many working class people call other other working class people who dress and act in a particular way Chavs too. Very complex or just simple? maybe a bit of both.
Use of the word "chav" shows a deep hatred of the working class and should be stamped out, according to a left-wing think-tank.
Tom Hampson, editorial director of the Fabian Society, argues in a forthcoming article that the word is "sneering and patronising" and more and more widely used.
He has called on broadcasters to take class discrimination seriously, and compared the word to terms of abuse such as "faggot" and "pikey".
