Help Me Out, Britons, Does This Define "Pikey"?

Mon Mar 12, 2007 6:50 am





Great comedy, but does it properly depict the common chav/pikey/ned/scally? Your bovvering to reply would be much appreciated!  Wink

That is a chav. A pikey is a gypsy/someone that lives in a caravan.

Ah, thanks! This end, all these terms of endearment (chav etc.) seemed to describe basically the same.

'Tis true. Pikey is a few years old now, and USED to have to same meaning as chav. Nowadays, as James said, it's means a gypsy/traveller. Chav defines much more what pikey used to try to describe!

You think that's a stab at the French? Really?  scratchchin 

Just as with the classic "Germans" episode of Fawlty Towers, I thought the French character (in this case) comes out of it rather nicely. It's the English who are hideous.

Oh, Aloges. I expected a better put-down from you. I give you a free hit and that's the best you can do?  Wink

Well, if you read the salutation at the end carefully you could find out who that was aimed at.  Wink

Some woman from Doncaster told me that where she comes from, 'pikey' means 'lucky'. I don't believe it.
