A derogatory term used to describe a person of Irish descent who lives in a caravan and travels the country. (It should be noted that the term "gypsy" or "romany" is not always accurate to describe these people-traditional Romany types have their roots in Eastern Europe and quite emphatically distance themself from Irish travellers.) no visible means of support although always seems to have a huge wad of ready cash. Opinions vary to the source of their income, but it generally consists of
1/stealing.
2/carrying out shoddy third rate building work for a grossly inflated price, then threatening to get the "boys round" if you wont pay.
3/thats about it....
Usually live in brand new top of the range caravans (stolen) and drive plain white brand new transit vans/pickups.(also stolen and uninsured. if you get hit by one out on the road, you've had it, what they will do is suggest you come round the campsite to sort it out, where they will beat seven bells out of you as a form of compensation) They will site their caravans on any available land, regardless of ownership, from the farmer's field to B&Q's carpark, and tend to know the law better than the police regarding squatter's rights. they usually show their appreciation to the landowner by dumping vast quantities of rubbish, human faeces, etc on the land before they leave.
They have recently made a great study of European union Human rights legislation and with the help of conscienceless money hungry lawyers have fought many court battles regarding why they don't need to make planning applications like the rest of us.
Despite contibuting nothing to the economy of their present country of residence, they are quick to complain when their children dont seem to get an education, when they are turfed off private land, etc.
They like to portray the image of a hard done by ethnic minority that is the victim of racial discrimination, citing the reason that ordinary people dont understand their way of life, they are really cheerful romany travellers, honest as the day is long, butter wouldnt melt, etc, failing to appreciate the fact that regular people are really not that gullible.
When not carrying out tarmaccing jobs, gardening etc, the pikey may supplement their income by stealing cars, either selling it on, stripping for parts or weighing it straight in for scrap, along with lead from church roofs, cast iron railings from outside schools, brass plaques from gravestones and their last transit van that got recognised by its legitamate owner.
Some modern pikeys are being extremely sly, choosing instead to live in houses like real people, either buying outright for cash, or playing on the local authority's duty to someone who claims to be homeless. Living in houses does not change their ways however, and they are still likely to steal from their neighbours, as you can find out when the stereo from your car that was broken into appears as if by magic in their transit van.
Pikeys are best avoided at all costs, unless you are extremely hard, and have a lot of hard mates. when challenged alone, your average pikey will be a spineless piece of shit who would rather run, but be warned their credo is "strength in numbers" and he will soon turn up at your place with 100 of his smelly unwashed mates, keen to bring you round to their way of thinking by use of fists, baseball bats, etc. Police are equally terrified of them and the traditional way in which they are dealt with by police is to move them onto a different area where they will be someone else's problem.
The recent huge influx of pikeys from Ireland is a direct result of legislation bought in by the Irish government effectively outlawing their way of life, and the uk's open door immigration policy is like a welcome mat.
If you live in a remote farmhouse and feel at risk of pikey attack, be sure to have a shotgun handy, its no less than they deserve- nobody likes being stolen from, after all, Essex people got fed up with them a couple of years back and torched their campsite one night.
Be warned, the only time a pikey will speak to you is if he thinks he can rip you off, get something for nothing, or just steal something you have that he wants.
HGV drivers in particular regularly hear the pikey's distinctive call "d'ye have any spare diesel, sor?", however, they will at least pay for it, offering you £10 for 50 gallons which they extract with a high-speed electric pump and oil drum in the back of their transit. If you decline their generous offer, they will likely turn up a little later and help themselves anyway.
so to sum up. thieving, parasitic, respecter of neither people or property, what they cant use they will destroy.
The traditional reaction of any criticism is "come round the campsite, we'll soon change your mind"
PIKEY:"we were doing a tarmaccing job up the road and the machine fell over, we have all dis tarmac to get rid of before it sets, do ye want yer driveway done? only tree hundred pound"
Homeowner "yes sure"
pikey: "ok, we finished, dat's six hundred pound. pay it or we'll come back and born yer house down"
Homeowner's shotgun "KABOOM"

Pikey pulls up in 7.5 ton lorry. "can ye sell me some diesel? I've not got enough to get to de services, I have an account there"
"yeah right, you drove past the petrol station 20 yards away to come and ask me that"

pikey:"want to boy a new laptop? only 50 pound"
person: "no thanks, you'll give me a bag with a housebrick in it or something"

From the English "turnpike", the place where itinerent travellers and thieves would camp near a settlement.

Pikey is not a racial group, the term is used to describe anyone who lives in a caravan or shares the same values and "culture" of "the travelling community", and whose main sources of income are as follows:

Stealing cars, flogging roses in pubs for "childrens' charities", nicking lead off roofs, burgling garden sheds, blagging entry to old peoples house to rob them, doing dodgy tarmac jobs ("we've got some black stuff left over from a job up the road"), sometimes with mint imperials used as a substitute for white chippings, or, reportedly, using snow to lay slabs on when the sand ran out, stealing your bollocks if they weren't in a bag and anything else that's not nailed down and anything that is nailed down but will fit in the back of an untaxed Transit when nobody's looking.

Characterised by lurchers on a string, a unintelligible language that "isn't English, it isn't Irish, it's just Pikey" (source: Film: Snatch), a penchant for harecoursing, ketamine, lighter fuel, fighting in pubs and shopping at Lidl.

Best avoided.

A Gypsy or Circus person. British version of trailer trash. Also a dialect used by pikeys which is a cross between English and Irish.

Originally a harmless slang name for a gypsy and/or traveller, being derived from the word 'turnpike.'

Now generally regarded as a term of abuse that encompasses any persons perceived as common, tasteless, flashy, in-bred, thieving and a whole host of other sins, the primary term is till applied to gypsies.

Once thought of as the type of person who sold you useless lucky heather whether you wanted it or not, the pikey is now the type of person who will uselessly tarmac your driveway whether you want it or not.

A popular hobby amongst pikeys is collecting; mainly dogs, horses, scrap metal and stolen goods.
Jesus, mate, who did your patio; a gang of pissed-up pikeys?

The Pikey: NOT A CHAV/TOWNIE - A totally different type of cretin.

A pikey is someone of dubious origin who would like to be known as a traditional happy-go-lucky romany type, but in reality is an illiterate thieving bastard who would stoop to previously unheard of depths in an attempt to 'earn' money. I use the term 'earn' loosely, as nearly all pikey commerce activities involve a modicum of illegal activity somewhere along the line.

Winter sees your typical pikey become an expert in UPVC fitting, summer they revert to the more traditional 'garden maintenance'

They are easily differentiated from your honest tradesman by the untaxed stolen (& nearly brand new) transit, emblazened with the words 'ask driver for details'.

Pikey youths normally hang out at the nearest Lidl during the day, & the pub unfortunate enough to be near their illegal campsite at night.

Arguments with these 'people' are futile, as they neither understand english or would care if they could. If you are lucky enough to put one of these creatures down be warned - their immediate family (normally numbering 100 plus) will hound you down.

Its best to avoid them like the plague, or do a Tony Martin & shotgun the buggers.
'What are you doing in my kitchen you pikey bastard?'

'Having it away with your goodies'

'Ah I see' KABOOM!!!!

A pikey is a filthy person. Contrary to popular belief in Urban Dictionary a pikey is NOT a chav or towny but a irish gypsy, at least it is where i'm from (represent evesham). Often inbred peoples (?) who move uninvited into fields/parks and totally decimate the whole area around it, even when they're gone. Claim all sorts of benefits and live tax free because they are scum.Speak in an unintelligible and yet untranslated crossbreed of Irish and English and ever sentence from them consist of the words 'boi' and a death threat somewhere in there. Often/always called Smith and own white Ford Trabnsit pickups. Like the ones Tony Martin shot. Go tony.

Thieving b*stards who when they are not thieving, spend their time indulging in one or more of the following: (1) shopping in Argos for giant-sized earrings/sovereign rings/gold chains that are too big for Mr T; (2) hanging around the post office on giro day; (3) burning out cars; (4)using the word 'innit' a lot and generally talking in a bumpkin slang; (5) smoking fags; (6) watching Trisha; (7) drinking alcopops and (8) offending everyone with their fake designer threads from the market. Regarding point (8)- if a pikey's clothes really ARE designer, you can be sure they are stolen goods. The most easy way of identifying a pikey is by their name - for example, if you encounter someone called Dean/Jordan/Chardonnay/Maddison/Tyler/Elvis/Tiffany/Jade/Tyson/Kylie etc you can guarantee they descend from pikey stock. They also think McDonalds is a high-class culinary experience. Losers.
