I was low on bandwidth for a while, so I missed this story about British passengers run amok on a cruise to Barbados.
Seems like every other week there’s a story in the British press about drunk Brits behaving badly on a plane or a ship. This is blamed on a species of person known as a chav, and in this case it is alleged that low fares attracted them.
As a commenter on my blog explained: “”Chav” is beyond white trash. They are universally and pointlessly violent and destructive. They break things for entertainment and dress like wanna-be rapper gangsters.”
OK, but even if all chavs are low-fare passengers, not all low-fare passengers are chavs. Some of us are just cheap.
