True that, it's a social problem rather than a political problem. A lot of it is down to social culture though, in my eyes, peer pressure and all that. Since the 50's, the typical teenager has been seen to 'rebel' to some extent, and the chav culture is a manifestation of that, in that they seem to be rebelling against traditional morals etc. Some people just don't want to be nice (that said, I know a lot of nice chavvy people, and a lot of total dicks who aren't chavs, so it's not just chavs).

Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at You, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story

[From the Who's album, TOMMY]
