    1. I grew up on a council estate and I remember the people who live on them with great fondness I didn t really know I was working class as I hadn t become aware of the rigid structure of our society but working class I was then and remain now That same fondness was once felt across the board, maybe not in full but the majority of people knew that those who lived on council estates were the salt of the earth , the wheels of the economy or simply that they loved their mum and would do owt for you Th [...]

    2. I agree with the author about Margaret Thatcher and her cruel war on the British poor But the liberal and left elites now in charge have been even worse in oppressing Britain s indigenous working classes and lumpenproletriatIt was indeed Margaret Thatcher who persecuted the working classes of Britain, taking delight in causing British children to starve and live on the streets but now it is the liberal and left elites who have joined the Thatcherites in persecuting and impoverishing the British [...]

    3. No doubt informative and well enough written although I have a real problem with the constant throwing around of statistics because anyone, including Jones, can and will manipulate them One in five british politicians went to Eton means A LOT, while only one in five teenage mothers are unemployed means NOT AS MUCH AS YOU THINK Nevertheless, Jones main proposition that we may have to think about classes again was very interesting, and some of his ideas are really useful For example being working [...]

    4. And then you go and spoil it all by doing something stupid like criticising Gordon Brown for calling that bigoted woman bigoted And by saying that she made mild remarks about immigration MILD While the book works at telling you the terrifying misdeeds of the conservatives in the UK specially Thatcher and Cameron , it focuses a bit too much in white, British born working class people It s like immigrants or people of colour don t exist to Owen Jones And when he made the bigoted woman look like a [...]

    5. When the new Eagles stadium here in Philly was being built, at the expense of taxpayers, a policy was put into place by the team In order for a season ticket holder to still be a season ticket holder in the new stadium, the person would have to pay for the privilege of buying the tickets This was done so that the 900 level fans the rowdy bunch to put it mildly wouldn t be able to get them It was class thing a better class of people would come to the games Meaning those well off from Jersey and t [...]

    6. A provocative and stirring book that despite its British centric focus has much to say about modern American politics as it does with the political climate in the U.K of the past three decades Now, one of the great political developments of the late 20th to early 21st century has been the de politicization of class and the demonization of the working class Initially brought about by class warriors on the Right such as Margaret Thatcher and her right wing brand of Toryism during the 1980s, but la [...]

    7. One of the things I couldn t quite comprehend in the middle of the decade we seem to be calling the noughties was the popularity of the TV show Little Britain among my seemingly sensitive, liberal or progressive circle of friends and acquaintances I thought for a while that was another version of being not of Britain and therefore not getting, for instance, Peter Kay s humour but at least in Peter Kay s case I recognised a degree of affection for the Northern lifestyle his recurrent TV shows see [...]

    8. In a world where we have recently seen economic collapse and the formation of the Occupy movement, Owen Jones Chavs is at it s most relevant As the rich poor wealth gap grows, there is a global feeling of disfranchisment among the 99%, and with the United Kingdom being one of the most unequal countries in the West, questions are being raised as to why this is happening In the course of addressing the complex issues surrounding the current crisis, Jones places much emphasis on the policies of the [...]

    9. Honestly I m so glad I read this book I grew up in an environment where it was cool to hate Chavs Where they were scroungers and idiots and dangers to my community But this study has helped to undo any of the prejudice that was still left from my teenage years Jones explains how the right wing press are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the portrayal of the white working class as complete scumbags It is a classic divide and conquer move by Tories to pit working class communities again [...]

    10. Chavs analiza el modo en que la clase obrera en Reino Unido es caricaturizada, despreciada e ignorada en el imaginario colectivo, que identifica a los trabajadores as del escal n social m s bajo con las peores cualidades humanas gracias a la inapreciable ayuda de los medios de comunicaci n y como ha sido econ mica y pol ticamente desestructurada gracias a las pol ticas de Margaret Thatcher eliminaci n de la industria, desactivaci n del poder sindical y a la renuncia del partido Laborista de su p [...]

    11. I need stars This was a three and half rounded up, an entertaining, clever, and passionate book about something that the left should already know but due to middle class bias seems to forget over and over again Which shows just how problematic the left is Anyone who s grown up poor will find this all too familiar, so I personally am angry that we still need books like this to help call out problematic caricatures and prejudices, and happy that someone is doing so It s full of easily accessible [...]

    12. A REVIEW OF OWEN JONES CHAVS FROM SOMEONE WHO ACTUALLY READ IT Review originally posted on s uk site where the other reviews referred to can be seen I would hazard a guess that Owen Jones Chavs The Demonization of the Working Class is one of the worst reviewed books on I speak with particular regard to the 1 2 star reviews, of which the majority appear not to have read beyond the books title, made the assumption that Jones regards Working Class and Chavs to be the same thing, got themselves work [...]

    13. Everyone should read this book It makes me want to hold this book up and say Yes This is what is happening all around us, to us From classist snobbery I ve dealt with in my life, to a real fear of what the future and politics has in store This book certainly struck a chord with me.

    14. In a review of my novel, Citizen Zero, it was asked what had happened that the unemployed became so criminalised At the time, Chavs by Owen Jones didn t exist, but today I can point to the book as a ready answer to the question and indeed, a part of the backstory.Jones subtitles his book the demonization of the working class but that isn t far removed from criminalising them For as long as I can remember, debate has raged over welfare reform and scroungers milking the system, of the need to crea [...]

    15. Owen Jones far from objective writing should be placed into context Much of his observations are not first hand and viewed through some pretty thick filters and deep blinkers The son of a local authority worker and IT lecturer in the North of England whose parents met at a Militant Tendency rally, he came through sixth form college to read history at Oxford and complete hi MA in US history in 2007 His pre authoring life was spent as a trade union lobbyist There is no proud history of the working [...]

    16. Chavs A very readable and fact filled and interesting, if sometimes rather TOO geared toward academia, book about working class, and class in general in UK today I guess chav is a fairly derogatory term for a poor person or working class redneck type person so derogatory that it would be equivalent to saying nigger in the wrong place in usa, that is you would get your ass kicked if not killed But also as nigger, it is used as a funny term of stereotype by pop culture, and used as an inword by po [...]

    17. I d been wanting to read this book since watching an incredulous Jones along with Drea Say Mitchell trying to counter David Starkey as the latter embarrassed himself on Newsnight last August I caught that broadcast live that night and actually have used it with my A level English Language classes to show misperceptions about Black English, Creole in general and Multicultural London English MLE , also known as Multi Ethnic Youth Dialect MYED However, I managed to get to reading Jones book last mo [...]

    18. Chavs tiene dos problemas el primero es que la situaci n que Owen Jones describ a en 2011 ha estallado como una olla a presi n sin escape en 2017 El segundo, que las interpretaciones que se han hecho en Espa a no me parecen las m s adecuadas Chavs es una descripci n clara de por qu ciertos sectores de la clase obrera han votado Brexit y Trump porque sienten que los partidos de izquierdas les han abandonado a su suerte y convertido en una caricatura que han terminado por aceptar.Chavs no es una r [...]

    19. I should have looked closely at the title, particularly the second part of it.Is Chav a derogatory term of abuse Yes, quite often But it can also be something of a badge of honour, rather like an ASBO.I was for the Chav and Owen Jones to begin with, very much so I was finding the book both interesting and enlightening I m also a sucker for the underdog and it s easy to resent treatment meted out by the ruling elite Lots of credible examples of this here.But I began to find it over long, repetit [...]

    20. A decent analysis of the media views of benefit scroungers and the like The commentary on how private schools, moneyed middle class parents etc offer an unfair advantage for some children definitely struck a chord for me That was something I saw as I went through a state education and then to a prestigious university where I realised how wide the gaps between the classes were However, the explanations of what working class underclass life is like didn t really ring true for me Maybe it s just a [...]

    21. U.S readers may be surprised by the very many similarities between the stereotypes of white working class Britons and the stereotypes of African Americans Seeing how these particular stereotypes are deployed in the U.K to cover up the effects of deindustrialization, rationalize the demolition of public housing, and blame an ostensible culture of poverty for the natural outcomes of late consumer capitalism may make it easier for people in the U.S to deconstruct the lies that seem to many to be se [...]

    22. Stunning Serious and important brings together many of the themes and issues of the past 40 years of political and social change to draw some powerful and necessary conclusions Although focused on the UK, much of it is relevant to New Zealand Should be compulsory reading for left wing politicians, all journalists and everyone who cares.

    23. La lucha de clases la ganan los ricos cuando no nos queremos reconocer como clase trabajadora La alarma que eleva Owen Jones respecto al Reino Unido es peligrosamente parecida a lo que se podr a decir de Chile y la tendencia a que todos se crean de clase media.Porque los trabajadores son aprovechadores, se reproducen sin control, son peligrosos, son b sicamente flaites Decirse de clase media es la declaraci n p blica que nos alejar a de esa miseria.Yo amo al Reino Unido, a su magn fico sistema d [...]

    24. I am not an economist My knowledge of economics and politics weren t spectacular and pretty mediocre, however reading this superb, excellently written book really was an eye opener Not only does Owen Jones write eloquently and fluently, he links ideas perfectly in a way almost anyone can understand His balanced, consistent and thorough use of statistics as well as expanding ideologies and digging into them, unearthing the roots provides brilliant reading as well as inciting attitude change, you [...]

    25. I ll admit I was expecting to hate this book When you re dealing with anti social behaviour and street harassment on a day to day basis the last thing you need are bleeding heart newspaper columns about how they can t help it because they re poor complete with the not so flattering subtext that if you re on a low income then somehow you can t help being an obnoxious idiot I was suspicious that Chavs was going to be a longer version of this narrative, but I was reassured just from reading the pre [...]

    26. This is the only non fiction book that I ve read this year but it really was an eye opener and essential reading It deals with the subject of the demonisation of the working class in the UK and how they changed from being the salt of the earth to the scum of the earth.Owen Jones is breathtakingly clever and astute This young man is often seen on programmes such as Newsnight and Question Time and no one who has listened to him could fail to be impressed.Go Owen, the country needs people like you [...]

    27. A regrettably necessary book, Chavs examines the contemporary plight of Britain s formerly able bodied and self defending working class The demonization enumerated in this informative book is chilling and concerning, for current disparagement of this demographic has proven to be merely the insult, added to the initial and enduring injury both financial and spiritual inflicted by the controversial Thatcher an injury of oppression, no less, unnervingly dis honoured by governmental successors.

    28. The CEO of Nike turned over 5 billion dollars last year To earn that much money, a Nike factory worker in China would have to work 7 days a week, 8 hours a day, for 10,000 years But they don t wanna Lazy Ricky GervaisOkay, I admit it I feel class hatred I didn t know I did, until I moved near a Sainsbury s, and now I walk around the aisles looking at all the frivolous overpriced follies the depressing sterile middle aged housewives buy to try and invigorate their sexless bloodless financially co [...]
