A label stupid, poor, lower class, trampy people gave themselves in order to fit into some kind of steriotypical group (because all the other groups reject them).

They live in estates, feeding off our taxes through benefits, which they spend on countless rings, thick gold chains, cigarettes and alcohol.

If it wasn't for the government these people would be homeless.

simple as.
Copper: You're under arrest.
Chav: What the fuck for?
Copper: Swearing at a police officer!

Chav- Council house, alcoholic violence
Such a definition can already give you a pretty good idea as to what sort of human scum we are dealing with when we are discussing Britain's new social working class.
A race of cowardly, ignorant and, above all, stupid people that believe drinking £1 (or cheaper) cider in a bus stop or such venue is a night out "wiv da lads". When approached by one chav, he will often mumble and look down, but approach the very same chav later with his "crew", he will attempt to look "propa hard" by starting a fight (often failing miserably). When threatened, he will not hesitate to call his "crew" into action and they will (somehow) devise a plan to take you to the floor and just kick you til you pass out.
Chavs tend to mock those who are different to them, coming up with various witty names such as "gribly", "mosha" or "goff". Such simple vocabulary, often grunted in an exaggerated deep voice by chavs and in a shrill scream by the chavette, the female equivalent, other favourite words and phrases include "mint", "sound", "mush" (some sort of word they use for each other) and "safe". The fact that nearly all chav words are monosyllabic is no coincidence, as this language is linked not only to their intelligence (or rather lack of), but their feeble attempts to seem intimidating.
Many chavs will point out a person who dresses or appears different to them, much like a dog will bark at or curiously sniff someone or something that is different to them (coincidence, I think not!)
Chav 1: Ova ther mate, fuckin' goff
Chav 2: Smelly goff... needs a batt'rin'
Chav 3: OII!!!! GOFF!!
Such is the feeble existence of the chav, that they feel the need to taunt those who are either alone or different. Much like a pack of wolves will taunt and kill a lonely deer... as you may be able to tell, chavs are fairly primitive and unsophisticated creatures that follow simple animal instincts to something unusual or even frightening.

Bunch of dickhead if you ask me.
Those Chavs think they're hard, but little that they know is that the force of a haymaker at their face from anyone would not only be beyond smashed that even their wonky, shitty teeth be swallowed, but also their low chav brand brain (which cost 1p in most known store) would be splattered inside their head.

As virilent as bubonic plague and spreading like rats emerging from their lairs these undesirables are spawning a legion of illegitimate 'chavlets.'
Linger round Oldham Street & Piccadilly Gardens in Manchista and watch the 'chavometer' peak!
Low chav index before midday tho' as they're still in their pits!
Baying and snarling like a pack of jackals round a wounded prey,basball caps cocked at an angle they take everything out of the system but put tap-all back!
Render the bastards down!
Chavs ferried in at one end -melted tacky jewellry and Rockport residue exuding out of the other!!
Only Argos Jewellry counters and Cash Generators would miss them.

Keep the detritus at bay !!''
