Pikeys in their truest form are a people that roam the land (Britain) in moderate to large numbers looking for appropriatley sized open spaces to park their trailers and set up a temporary home, usually on private property but occassionally on land leased/sold to them by land owners or allocated to them by councils (local government in Britain).
When the temporary encampment is set up, you will notice their presence immediately because of the eye sore that is fifty to several hundred mobile homes, trailers, vans and cars taking up space that was previously devoid of anything.
Once set up, pikeys are notoriously difficult to move on, often claiming persecution/discrimination/ownership of land when asked to move on, when in fact
it is their abuse of local resources and amenities (schools, shops, pubs) that leads to their being asked to leave.
Once moved, the land they previously inhabited for anything up to several years will be completely unusable by anyone until renovation is undertaken by local council or land developer, as pits dug in to the ground and used as latrines are common along with large piles of massively unhygeinic rubbish and/or several (possibly stolen) cars or vans now no longer needed in their endeavours to completely fuck up anything in sight will be left behind as testimony to their parasitic nature.

Pikeys are closely linked to, but not be confused with traveller and gypsy.

Derogatory name for travelling folk such as Romany Gypsies, often used as an abusive term that is now frequently (and mistakenly) used to describe council estate scumbags who dress badly in cheap clothes and can be seen hanging around all over this country. They are people who have, for the last 800 to 1000 years, been forcibly chased out of every country in Europe, had their children taken away, been sterilised (that was a state sponsored initiative by the Swedish government up until 1974) and lets not forget the 3.5 million that were exterminated by Nazi Germany in the Holocaust among many other pleasant things Europe has done. Originally they were received in Europe with welcoming arms, the were hard working and had exotic items to trade but then landlords wanted them removed as they undermined their authority, this is when the first anti-gypsy laws came in and ever since then its has the states position to vilify and persecute them. Still today they are one of the most underrepresented and racially abused ethnic groups.
Now the descendants are highly suspicious of settled people are treat them like shit, I suffered from this working in a pub they didnโ€™t like to leave and if you forced the issue they would smash the place up. But then as I am of Pikey origins on my fathers side i could undestand their resentment, my fathers family were forced to settle. I never knew any different from you and i have worked hard until i went to uni (which I am paying for). Some of them really are a bunch of dicks who do nothing more than make trouble, but not all. Its like saying all muslims are terrorist, all black men thieves and all white blokes are paedophiles.
Did you see them dirty Pikeys down by the road?

Scum of the earth. Live in caravans on other people's property because they are so cheap they won't pay taxes. Steal water from the farmers taps because they want to spend the money they do have (usually stolen) on cheap tacky gold chains, hoop earrings, burberry hats, trackies, shell toe trainers. You walk past one and they accuse you of starting on them but there is no point having a fight with one because they will go get all their incestuous brothers/cousins on you. They can't see straight because they have crossed eyes which is an affect of the inbreeding. There mothers are their sisters/cousins/grandmas/aunties. Usually in a group they turn a field and turn it into a pikey pit. They all have the same surname because they are all related. ARe incredibly stupid their vocabulary consists of the words "init", "bruv", "you startin?", "burberry", "mint", "trackies". Whine on about being better off than you although they live in crappy little caravans. Go around trying to act all hard when really they are cowardly shits. Should have been destroyed at birth.
Pikey - "I am well richer than you bruv"
Me - "Well why don't you live in a house then?"

roaming 'merchants'/ thieving gypsy bastards specialising in gates, crows nests and tar, normally taken from your house the month before. enterprising in their choice of weaponry, they tend to use machetes, tomahawks and rusty slashhooks to settle minor disputes.
pikey: "dyah wana buya gate boss"

Unfortunately pikeys are the majority of today's youth, and everyone else has to suffer. Pikeys are the people who are eternally rude, make a mockery of the english language (I'm sure the person who invented the english language is having a fit). They are the people who make you feel uncomfortable for walking along the same street as then, and generally destroying today.
To get the right image in your mind:
Male pikey:
Dress - addidas or similar sports tracksuit bottoms, above the ankle of course, occasionally with the white socks pulled up over the top. astonishingly white trainers, as if they've just been stolen, popular sports make obviously. A nicholson or england polo shirt,or a polo shirt (and matching cap) with graffiti writing saying "love sex rock n' roll" or similar over and over again,
or general football shirt, a FCUK shirt and if you're lucky a cheapo "designer silk shir" (fresh from the local market) and usually an addidas or similar training jacket, or if not a hoodie pulled up over the cap. Large cheap gold chains hanging aroung their neck, fake of course but about 5 inches thick, and one gold earring. Fake burberry headwear of course, a nice fake burberry cap planted on their greasy heads under a hood, or a white cap covered in basketball team logos perched on top of their heads, not even in an attempt to stay on. Hair is usually very short, often shaved, if not completely gone, extremely greasy.

Traits: Young pikeys in cheap cars with spoilers, alloys and neon lights underneath of course. And just so you know you can hear a pikey coming from about 10 miles off, you can hear the "UMTA UMTA UMTA UMTA" of the drum and bass blasting out of their cars with their 3000 watt speakers. Council houses are their home, older pikeys usually don't work because "the country owes them a living and the government works for them" and young pikeys often don't go to school, intelligence is not their strong point. You will also see pikeys hurling abuse at innocent bystandersand often beating them up. Pikeys always hang around in groups of at least 10 at bus stops, parks, actually anywhere where there is something. You will also see pikeys standing on street corners smoking (no matter what age) and possibly with a bottle of white lightning or similar cheap alcohol. Shoplifting and fighting are good hobbies.

Female Pikey:
Dress- female pikeys often change their style of dress but of course are instantly recognisable. The first type of female pikey dress is not unlike the male pikey's, addidas tracksuit bottoms (of course about 3 inches above the ankle), sometimes not addidas, but usually, the sporty trainers or if not the "loafers" hard to describe because in a pikey sense they are slightly different but i'm sure you get the picture. Again a nicholson or england polo shirt or usually again FCUK with an addidas or Kappa training jacket or with a white parka, white puffer jacket with the grey furry hood (unfortunately they seem to have dropped the "hoodie and the denim jacket with the hood hanging on the outside of the denim jacket on"), this is of course complimented by the fake burberry scarf. The jewellery is really something, again the large gold chains, with gold crosses usually, and their ears are usually pierced about 10 times, with the largest gold hoops you have ever seen in your life, now these hoops can either be so large you could make animals jump through them, or so thick that the pikey must have industrial strength ears to keep them on their head. The other type of female pikey has the same sort o tops and the same jewellery, but usually has tight jeans, three quarter length, and a pair of beige or black quite flat fabric boots, usually suede effect, or if not an extremely short miniskirt that a normal person would usually describe as a belt. Of course all female pikeys have the same hair and make-up, usually dyed blonde with quite evident black roots (unless they're a true blonde, then they're just very lucky *sarcasm*), all pikey females will have their hair scraped back up into a very tight pony tail towards the top of their head, usually with gel and about 20 hair clips and of course a fake burberry hair tie, in fact the pony tail usually pulls their skin up so they find it quite hard to move their face or make any expression (also known as the pikey face lift). The make-up is a pikey art, foundation, as much foundation as possible in a pikey's opinion, i personally think that they must spread it on with either rollers or paintbrushes, but either way at the end of the day their faces are so alarmingly orange that if you look at them for too long not only will you be beaten up but you may be blinded. In general as much make-up as possible.

Traits: Usually found in groups of at least 10 alongside the male pikeys, usually following the male pikeys in what they do. Usually chewing gum and staring at every person that walks past and giving them "evils" and if you so much as glance at them you get the reply "wot you starin' at?", "you lookin' at me?", "wos your problem?" and if you dare going within 10 feet of one "wot you doin'" or "you breavin on me?". Poular pastimes include smoking, drinking, skiving off school, shoplifting and getting pregnant, most pikeys are mothers by at least 17.

There is so much more i could say about pikeys, but I'd be here all night and it makes me very angry. I hope this helps you in your everyday lives, good luck, the streets are dangerous out there.

chavs, townies, rudies, kevs, neds (non educated delinquents), wiggers(those who think they are black), tracky bashers the list goes on
