Thought I'd post this for a little amusement along with being a serious question.
Having visited quite a few countries in western europe over the last few months, one thing really struck me, you don't seem to see any 'chavs', by that I mean the baseball capped or hoodies with the adidas track suits etc generally being pretty anti social.
Is this a British phenomenom?
I found it a real pleasure to be able to walk around city centres late at night without having to half look over my shoulder to see who was behind me, there seemed to be a totally relaxed friendly atmosphere as opposed to the rather menacing one you often find in the UK and when you did see the odd person who'd obviously had a few too many there was no threatening behaviour just a bit of a stumble!
Any one got any ideas?
