The word ned is believed to stand for non-educated delinquant. They are basically violent scottish youths and in some cases adults. They are known to wear berghaus or tracksuits, though just wearing the clothes does not make a ned as the violence and arrogance must be present. Neds are usually quite racist and hate anyone who looks different or is from another gang. Ned is basically a trend of violence like its english equivalent the chav. There is some conffusion about neds being another name for the working class, this is not true as class does not determine violence.
(person walks by neds while talking to his friends)

ned: oi you ya cunt

person: huh?

ned: you fuckin acting wide

person: what?

ned: whatch it or I'll smash you

(person walks away with friends)

ned: ya fukin boostin ya cunt

(the ned and his ned friends chase after them and assault them. They may possibly use knifes or another weapon, at the end person will be badly hurt. The person's belongings at the time will be stolen along with his friends belongings).

For those of us who were not educated at kindergarten, a ned is a person between the ages of around 8 to 18 who speaks with an accent no-one but fellow neds can understand (often saying stuff like ken fit ye bam). Their clothing consists of brightly coloured fake tracksuits and puffa jackets – a warning for people to stay away, similar to the markings of a wasp. Most will sport a radiant tan – although the furthest they’ve been is to a young offenders’ institute.They’ve been Smoking anything from mud to oregano since they were 3 coz they think it’s hard. They to display this ‘hardness’ by constantly having a cigarette behind one ear, an earring in the other and using the middle finger approach at least 32 times a day. They like to wear a ton of gold jewelery; so high quality the gold rubs off. Hobbies of the bam include drinking, burning down buildings, starting fights and shouting abuse at people.

A poor example of a Human Being, who lives in the Glasgow area (Scotland), They drink Buckfast and smoke large amounts of cigarettes. They are also taking over the world because they tend to breed like rabits
Female: Ware fake gold, Their make up might as well be orange paint, Tend to have around 4 kids in a litter (Most have children from 13 and up) Drop out of school to become a housewife or go to beauty collage, Usually never see the father of the children ever again
Male: Wear Shell Suits, become a father to 15 childern with diffrent mothers, Have barely any education, Become a Builder, Abuse any other normal members of Socitey
If anyone did'nt know, we are totally ripping the piss out of neds, :) So do us a favor and if you know any Neds, Convert them into Functional members of Society.

A ned is in no way an acronym for 'non-educated delinquient' as so many people have stated on this site considering the correct grammatical term would be UN-educated delinquient. This myth was popularised incorrectly by MSP Rosie Kane who attempted to have the word banned stating that it was hurtful to those it was lablelling, implying that they were non-educated.
Ironically in this stunning grammatical error, Kane has shown a true example of an UNeducated urn of phrase.

what is more likely is the term came from the 1950s' 'teddy boy' gangs who dressed in edwardian style clothing altough this is largely disputed as well.
Rosie Kane - They are being labled as non-educated delinquients thats not right

anyone who stayed in school after they were 6 - i think you mean uneducated now get back to your overpriced, falling down excuse of a parliment and attempt to give an actual shit about scotland

Neds are people who speak slang ,wear track suits, often lacoste. female neds: wear a foundaition a few times darker than there natural skintone resulting in an orange appearance.neds tend to wear a vast amount of common cheap gold jewellery. Neds r closely associated with chavs and bams.
neds can often be found loitering in parks under bridges or in other quiet and iscolated places drinking bucky/buckfast or cider and smoking. Neds often form gangs for there area they arrange fights with other gangs for no apparent reason. police hate neds and innocent people are often mistaken for neds , resulting in great hatred for the neds of glasgow and other areas.
