The chav issue

My flat mate bless her decided in her wisdom to magnet to our fridge a Daily Mail double page spread about Chav's.

Oh the comedy of it all, however it really brought home to me the fundamental prejudice in the chav-baiting (as well as the need for a ban on comedy news features) Its a case of the middle class mocking working class culture. I mean admitably the group is an easy target, with the self parodying nature of the group but fundamentally any mocking of chavs is I'm laughing at you because I'm posher than you.

Is that funny?
