Tipton in the black country is the chav capital of Britain, is it? yes it is! I should first of all say that I am from Liverpool and my girl friend is from the West Midlands (sunny Hampstead). In this rant I'm not having a go at people from the West Mids or more specifically TIPTON a town (place) in the Black Country but I do feel that I have to get this of my chest!. I'm sure there are other chav havens in the country just not as bad as Tipton. Today I had the dubious pleasure of driving through Tipton (when I say the word Tipton I do so with my eyes cast to heaven, praying to god that I will never be so unfortunate to have to live in the place) the biggest, the worse (all the clichés you can think of) Chav towns in the country. Tipton is in Sandwell which is in the Black Country and seems to have materialized in this area from some other distant galaxy (its only claim to fame are the infamous “Tipton Taliban 3”!!!) and its no wonder they came from this area. This is a place where all the locals go around dressed in rip off chav gear, gold chains, rings, trainers, dirty white shell suites, base ball caps that are 5 times to big for their small brained skulls. All males over the age of 15 have the essential greasy hair and a can of spay paint for their art work on pubic buildings, in the other hand a mobile phone no doubt taken off some unfortunate soul. All females over the age of 13 have the ultimate chav accessory "their own chav baby" done up like a Christmas tree in dodgy gold, and been fed on a diet of Carling extra and cheap fags. If that is not bad enough, because of the local tradition of " keeping it in the family" 1st cousins are of course OK, the newborns are never likely to grow up into anything more than more small brained chavs, and so it goes on! What amazed me as I drove though (windows up, doors locked, and a joint of beef stake at the ready to distract any of the locals rabid dogs) was the amount of new housing been put up in this place by the local council Sandwell. I had to ask myself why on earth put all this investment into Tipton. None of this will ever change the backward locals, after all this is a place where (and I'm serious as i saw today with my own eyes) they still use a horse and cart to get around and tether them to the street lights(sorry gas lamps). These people don't need new housing they need to removed from the area and dispersed for re-education and socialization (London would be a good option, or even abroad). The area its self could then be bulldozed and turned into a large park. As i said at the beginning my girlfriend is from Hampstead, this area was in Birmingham until the boundary changes in the 1970s but now has the stigma of been in Sandwell. Hampstead was once a beautiful area but has now declined because of the lack of investment, the money going to chav towns like Tipton. Investment in housing should go into areas where the local people will appreciate it and look after new things like housing, unlike the new properties I saw today in Tipton, they were already vandalized and boarded up.

Max I do not think I should be talking to you. A "Gannex" is that some sort of working class stuff? Please do not mention your underwear comes from M&S. I mean there are standards you know! even for Burberry Ruffies!

Nottingham is the biggest 'Chavopolis' in the UK without a doubt!

Not quite sure which is the loudest, the sound of the Council House (kind of a city hall) clock on the hour, or all the electronic tags going off after the 8pm curfew!

What is Chav about Swilly? Poor and unsophisticated but which of the chav criteria does it meet?

Surely Plympton and Plymstock as lower middle class suburbs with police dispersal area status are the Plymouth chav areas?
