Wow. That’s a serious teenage chav error.
Jonathan, I am hopelessly unhip. A virtual dinosaur when it comes to the slang of you young’uns. “Chav” is a new one for me.
D’oh, sorry. It’s a pejorative used against the worst of the working-class youth in the UK. The scum of the earth and bane of everyone’s existence, basically.
If I’m honest, I’m not even sure it gets used on the regular basis now that it had been a few years back.
Ah, a UK thing, huh? I’m afraid I have a limited UK vocabulary. Thanks for lesson!

In the movie Hot Fuzz (2007), the character of Nick Angel is teased by his fellow cops when his name appears in the local rag as Nick “Angle.”
I wonder if Nick Angle ever gave a suspect the fifth degree.
