Driving through the Greens this morning I saw a Ford Mondeo pull out of one of the side streets between the low-rise apartments. As the driver turned the corner he came up to taxi that had just stopped to pick up a passenger.

Boy, did the driver let the horn go!

At 7:15 AM.

Since this is about chavs, the driver was a red-faced 'bloke' wearing a football jersey and the rear of the Mondeo featured not one but two football team insignias.

Yep. We have chavs in Dubai.

So how do you recognise a chav here?

I'd say there were spoilt brats in the UAE, badly brought up kids who were given cash and a maid rather than love and lines in the sand that shouldn't be crossed. What you don't get there are gangs of chicken wing eating kids hanging around carving "Tracey is a ****" into benches outside shopping malls or off licenses, intimidating middle aged women and generally looking like they should be put down immediately. I'd take the spoilt kids over the feral ones....just.

By their clothes, their actions and when they open their mouths.

I was at Barasti a few weeks ago, not a place I frequent, and whilst it didn't appear as bad as it was a couple of years back, there were certainly plenty of chavs around. Anyone who has had the misfortune to venture into Rockbottom in Tecom (never again!) will find it infested with them too.
