A person of the lower classes with football tattoos. Will be seen around town when the rest of us are working hard. He will be dumb and inarticulate and more common than rats in a farmyard. The female equivalent will be found with two or three kids in pushchairs, wearing leggings with a cigarette hanging out of her common mouth. The kids will be called things like Tara and Billy. The common Skiffden can also be referred to as a Skiff or even Skiffer.
The dole office had skiffdens queuing out of the door.
That’s a really rough skiffs pub.
Man, she was a right skiffer.
You don’t want to live there mate it full of skiffdens.
