Charva is the romany (gypsy) word for unruly youth. Why it originates in Newcastle when there is next to no gypsies is beyond me. In my part of the north-east (Darlington) the word charva refers to gypsies as that is the correct meaning. The little tossers from Newcastle are just wannabe gypsies (fuck knows why) hence the use of the word charva to describe themselves.
Real charvas wear real burberry caps and rockports as they can afford the flash gear because they (somehow) make lots of money unlike the little wannabe rentas.

Originally derived from the Georide term for stealing and known by many different names, the charva is easily spotted by the Burberry caps (real ones are prized after they got taken off the market due to their supposed links to football hooliganism, so most are market stall copies), white tracksuits (well, normally white; some dare to be slightly different and go blue) and Rockport (or, again, knock-off versions of) boots. Females of their kind seem to have an obsession with garish gold jewellery- chunkier the better, and usually out of a catalogue. Commonly associated with TWOCing, ASBOs, underage pregnancy and car modding.
Oi, charva! Get away from me car yer theivin' git!

Charva: Male charvas are loud annoying youths who hang around on streey corners smoking lambert and buttlers and drinking the cheepest cider they can get there hands on. however this is often a problem as they are always unwilling to pull there hands from out of there underwere or take them off the girlfriends arse. For some reason they feel the need to continuosly spit directly bettween there shoes and it is a wonder that there fake rockport shoes are not permanantly cacked in spit. They were clothes that are hidious and that they like to think are expensive but are actually cheep nock offs bought from market stalls in spain were there mother has taken her new boyfriend on a holiday. they like to were there nock off burburry hats at a ridiculasly high angle on there heads and for some rreason as yet not known gel there hair before they put there hats on. The girls i can only assume, get a coke can and spray there fringe around the can using enouf hair spray to put quite a large hole in the o-zone layer. They also always look oringe from using too much foundation. They were alot of white and like skin tite trousers. they always are seen hanging on to some idiot boyfriend and is usualy pregnant or seen pushing pushchairs around town. When groups of charvas get together they are loud and usually uninteligable. they like to shout abuse at people and pick fights with people because the person in question happened to look in the general area of theses youths. After carefull thought and analysis i decided that the closest thing that charvas can be described as being like are blackbirds and pigeons. And this is only because both the birds and charvas seem to live off tab ends and chewing gum.

Charvas are the scum of the universe and should be shot. They treat other people like they are shit, when the charvas are the ones standing on street corners looking like prostitutes. Most charv girls get pregnant b4 they are 20, and loads have abortions b4 they are 15. Their clothes are tacky,disgusting and completely mismatched. Im a goth and ive had charvas grief me about the way i look and they couldnt think of a better insult if it came up and slapped them with a wet fish. They are obsessed with mothers and use this as an insult ("ya ma'!") they suck the big one and should be put into corectional faciliies till they can pronounce goth properly.

Young people who think they are the best and are always pickin fights wiv every1 for the smallest things. They hang around the streets of Newcastle smokin drinkin nd lookin untidy. There language is barely understandable. Their fashion sense consists of highly priced Rockport boots and Henry Lloyd or Fred Perry jumpers. The lasses where tight pants from Rebel Rebel in every colour and have large fringes sticin out from their head. What a waste of hair spray. The lads team their Rockports with tracksuite bottoms and Burbry caps at 45 degrees from their heads. They are usually the most popular people in school but senisible people like 2avoid them. Dont p*ss them off cause they'll "do u in"
They are often found sayin "lend 'is a tab" and drinkin cider.
