Why didn't they have a "fag" too? My money is on the Chav Scum.
The Sun is the most racist paper possibly going, yet they want to make out as if they are some caring quality read? I'm having none of it.
pissing on dead bodies and robbing people's pockets HEY, SUN? They've missed a trick there.
...followed closely by the Daily Express. Two hate filled, fear spreading, toilet papers that fuel the nastiness that is underlying everything at the moment in this country
how many people are going to read that and be genuinely surprised at the 'twist'?
everyone knows that all of those people can be british. it just highlights the incredibly low intelligence the sun expects its readers to have.
it's rubbish that wont work but will make the sun feel like they've done something for race wars.
A very eloquent explanation, and one that I totally agree with. The Mail and Express are worse than the sun though, cos the people who buy those are middle class
how is 'chav scum' a racially-motivated insult?
they're trying to prove so many different things at the same time that they've lost sight of what they meant to do in the first place.
i have such utter contempt for the sun, its writers, its readers and anyone who accepts money for a story off them.
so therefore a dig at chathamites.
that's not really racist though is it....
....that's just fact about a place.
today on my walk to the bus stop i saw two 11 year old kids properly getting it onin the playground.
it was derived from an acronym that local councils used for rodent infestations - council house and vermin, but that could be made up
a romany word, innit?
It's from the Latin 'Chavo', meaning child.
Chavs are almost exclusively white, in stereotypes, aren't they?
Black chavs are probably gang members, or ghetto kids or something. Us whites, we get the chavs. Lucky us.
no-one's mentioning any latin nonsense that I can find....
speaking as a 'Chatham girl' I am obviously biased, but I've been using the word 'chav' since the tender age of 13, that's over 10 years ago.....
i had a point......
I know you...
but you're only a year older than me, and Medway's a small place...
woop. and yes yes it is.
which school? (fort pitt)
do you frequent tap?
for shame. Used to be a tap regular, moved away now though.
Actually, what year did you leave school? Were you perchance friends with a lot of lads from the Maths school?!
i was/am friends with some maths school boys though.....
ben murray, gary denham, rob close, dave something....ummmmn, i knew quite a few others but by nicknames, you know how it is.... who'd you know?
and i too had moved away but i'm back due to circumstances beyond my control. tap has saved the day though. although it's full of kids....
did you ever go to any 6th form parties at the manor club?! (now an underage hell hole) they were *amazing*
from when it switched from old Excaliburs to the New Road, until I left 6th form (Rainham Mark). It used to be fantastic drunken fun, I've heard it's hideous now. Is it true there's an indie night on at Casino rooms these days?
I'm tryna think who I'd know. Err, Tom Ratcliffe, Ant Lee, Paul and Simon and Ross, Tom Uden. And some girls that used to be in the same extended group from FP. No idea on names though, I'm rubbish.
my bro loved it but then they stopped it and moved it somewhere, can't remember where.... i was told today though that there's a rock night on at amadeus...can you imagine?!! no. neither can i.
i recognise those names...my friends marie (curly hair), natalie and dil went to maths school 6th form, maybe you mean them?!
rainham mark....did you know alex martin?!
don't you miss chatham now?!! huh?!
MEDWAY ROCKS!!!! *sigh*
Small world :)
Actually, I do miss Chatham, because living there is not something you can really explain to someone who's never spent time there. It's shit, true, BUT it's that kinda shit where everyone knows they're knee deep in it, and just carries on regardless. I (sadly, probably) genuinely enjoyed hideous nights out at the Zone and Casinos - Amadeus is just too fukn far away, and no, definitely can't imagine a "rock" night. I blame the students...
Chatham > Horsham, if you can believe that...
I went out with him briefly in year 12...nice guy.
and I know exactly what you mean. I hated having to come back here but now it's kinda ok, I have a new found love for the place, in a fucked up relationship kind of way.
The Zone is now called 'Preach' and has a light-up dance floor, I'm shitting you not. I've not been back but I'm told they have a pole there too, I'm sure you can imagine the joyous sights that brings!!
Still has hilariously sleazy as ever.
If you went out with Alex, did you know, err...Hannah, and Ellie, and people like that?
but we only went out for a couple of months, if that. and his mum was my english teacher....so it was a bit weird like....do you know what he's doing now?!
I went off the zone after some fat chavs beat us for not getting off the podium. sigh.
He's probably on MySpace. In fact I'm almost certain he is.
it was from out that way as well. the sheppey scum website uses it a lot, and that was all written about six years ago...
People love just making up utter utter bullshit for the hell of it.
chathamite is a local term
are you local?
holding a sign saying 'paddy'?
Tango Balls' parents are both from the Emerald Isle.
but I had to say something
it would have been funny on the front cover though.
they won't even let us on the cover
what Michelle Mcmanus is to bullying for obesity, or Live 8 was to curing world poverty - the public votes or watches, feels good, and then go back to reading The Sun's article on "Ten Ways WE CAN ALL KNOW If We're Living Next To A Terrorist".
1. they are muslim.
2. they have a beard.
3. they speak in a shady foreign language.
4. they seem to work stranger hours/claim benefits
5. they regularly attend the nearest mosque
6. they often invite groups of other muslims round for meetings
dam it, i've got 6 ways to see if you neighbour is a terrorist. obviously i'm not good enough to write for the sun.
8. they don't go out binge drinking, like normal people who respect british values
9. their daughter doesn't have a navel. she might but she wears clothes over it.
one more anyone?
they spent their growing years in British schools suffering alienation and abuse, until one day they though, "hey, under sharia law, all the abusive kids would have their arms chopped off or something. let's have some of that sharia law! YEAH."
so, y'know, in society filled with booze/sluts/muggings/segregated communities/full prisons, THEY'RE the bad guys.
it does annoy me though. i see myself as being very liberal with social trends but i look at people being sick in the street, fighting and fornicating and i think: maybe the niqab and no booze, WOULD be good for us.
how little self esteem must you have to think dressing like a slut makes you happier?
that didn't involve killing people for silly things.
or, y'know, wifebeating and stuff.
but yeah. I dislike our society as it is.
holding a sign saying 'frog', even though that is what they call them in every edition.
on the main news page, the words Slapper, Junkie and Blonde are all used derogatorily.
except for the white middle classed people who write the thing.
im using that as a lyric
painting that on the back of my leather jacket tonight, just above my Tazmanian Devil artwork
earlier in the thread: 'The Mail and Express are worse than the sun though, cos the people who buy those are middle class'
they get a bit of abuse but then they did only come over here to steal our jobs, rape our women and take out nhs back to krakow.
well, that's what the sun says.
aren't british though.
called pikeys? Where did that come from? Not much has been said about 'travellers' yet?!
the turnpike man - ie the medieval toll collector on roads
better explanation here
they are subhuman scum who want to come over here and lower houseprices!
''The Sun launched a campaign in January 2007 asking their readers to report to their investigative department the "sickest websites" they find on the internet. This follows a recent exposé The Sun uncovered about websites dealing in human organs''
''In November 2006, The Sun ran a news story on the front page about a new website allowing people to track down missing sex offenders. Rather than give the actual address, the paper gave the headline as Pervhunt.com. A member of the Popbitch.com messageboard bought the rights to the domain of Pervhunt.com (which was available) and re-directed it to the Page 3 Rookie page of The Sun's website, containing topless images of models aged 18 and older. Many people had accidentally visited the website that day, and the paper was forced to change the address of the rookie page  The address of pervhunt.com now redirects to the Crimestoppers UK most wanted.''
thats funny :)
i hate the sun.
the Sun Have Your Say pages are even better than that BBCs for stupid entertainment
The newsagent thought my double take at this was amusing, this morning.
I ALMOST went back into the shop to buy it.
Best Front Page Ever.
It explains a lot too: Yesterday a guy from the Sun came into our office. We were like "Wassup, homey?"
Barely able to catch his breath, he wheezed: "I need a nigger, before 5 if possible?"
"Sorry mate," My boss said" "I'm a wop, or a dago, depending on who's talking. But I might be able to sort you out. Gis a call later on the nigger hotline and I'll see what I can do."
"dont call british black people "niggers" cos theyre british! But fuck those immigrant bastards. Fucking pakis"
can I dispute this?
"Like Celebrity Big Brother winner Shilpa Shetty, they have encountered racism in this country. But they are also all BRITISH."
they know Shilpa isn't British, right?
What was she doing on British TV then? Silly poppadom.
...was on about the 4th or 5th page they compare her "plight" to that of Stephen Lawrence. Seriously.
