Derogatory term used to describe people of low social-class. It's very similar to the term Chav. Also used to describe something that looks cheap or tacky.
It's based on the fact that poor people would tend to live in subsidised housing in the UK known as a council estate. Council estates have improved a great deal in the past 10-20 years but some are still suffering from anti-social behavour brought about by Chav and Urban wannabee behaviour by kids and young adults who are simply bored and lacking identity or a sense of community.
