There doesn't seem to be any substance to the complaints; just general moans.  For all the penalties for holding a "chav themed party" - which is funny and harmless.

At a disciplinary hearing, the union's activities committee imposed sanctions on the club,

For what?  What is the offence?

I think the organisers should argue that it's an imaginary stereotype that doesn't apply to any real group of people; and that if the union wants to get offended on someone else's behalf*, it needs to do two things: identify some of the individuals assumed to be offended, and explain why those people can't make a complaint themselves.

I think it can be a wholly good thing to stick up for someone, who, for one reason or another, can't defend defend him/herself. However, when it comes to applying real punishments on behalf of imaginary people, because of what you imagine they might be thinking, then you've fallen through the moral event horizon.

The Two Ronnies instead of doing a thick Irishman stereotype did this non-specific yokel for all their "stupid" jokes.

They said nobody ever complained because nobody thought it was having a go at them.

I would have thought that non-specific chavs is exactly the same.

Everyone knows chav is another word for lazy, uneducated, anti-social wanker.

There is no greater subsection of society that deserves to have the piss taken out of it more, IMO.

I don't know why anyone would give a shit.

It actually stands for

Council

House

And

Van

 

so, it could be seen as both insulting and discriminatory. It is ubiquitous for scummy, feral people though so fair enough.

Oi! I own a van!

Rumour had it that it was an old police acronym for Council House And Violent but apparently this is an urban legend.

Another variant was 'CHAtham massiVe, but that probably also pushing it.

The generally accepted etymology is that it's descended from a Romany word  'Chavi' that means 'boy' but, to be fair, I don't think anyone has a fucking clue really.

I personally use it to describe someone who is a state-dependant waste of skin and piss.

yep.  Wayne and waynetta types. 

I don’t think these Leeds uni kids did anything wrong. I mean, they could have gone all Prince Harry and had a nazi party.

Trust me I really do come from the criminal underclass.  It is a derivative of "charver" as in the  London 70s speak for a wide boy.  Always happy to be proven wrong however..

I heard council house and violence.

The modern chav is too work shy to have a van. Can you even get a council house if you have a job?

True. 

I was told this version by a very posh person in a place called Brookmans Park x Cecil Parkinson lived there...

Given that over 40% go to uni now, and Leeds isn't an absolute top drawer university anyway, I'd be surprised to find that these are particularly posh people, so were arguably taking the piss out of themselves.

A schoolfriend of mine got into Leeds with DEE at a level. In the 80s. Can't think it has improved much.

Plan B agrees with you.

Let's all go on an urban safari
We might see some illegal migrants
Oi look there's a chav
That means council housed and violent

He's got a hoodie on give him a hug
On second thoughts don't you don't wanna get mugged
Oh shit too late, that was kinda dumb
Whose idea was that, stupid
He's got some front, ain't we all
Be the joker, play the fool
What's politics, ain't it all
Smoke and mirrors, April fools?
All year round, all in all
Just another brick in the wall
Get away with murder in the schools
Use four letter swear words cause we're cool
We're all drinkers, drug takers
Every single one of us burns the herb
Keep on believing what you read in the papers
Council estate kids, scum of the earth
Think you know how life on a council estate is
From everything you've ever read about it or heard
Well it's all true, so stay where you're safest
There's no need to step foot out the 'burbs
Truth is here, we're all disturbed
We cheat and lie, its so absurd
Feed the fear, that's what we've learned
Fuel the fire
Let it burn

Oi! I said Oi!
What you looking at, you little rich boy?
We're poor round here, run home and lock your door
Don't come round here no more, you could get robbed for
Real, because my manor's ill
My manor's ill
For real
Yeah you know my manor's ill, my manor's ill!

You could get lost in this concrete jungle
New builds keep springing up outta nowhere
Take the wrong turn down a one way junction
Find yourself in the hood, nobody goes there
We got an eco-friendly government
They preserve our natural habitat
Built an entire Olympic village
Around where we live without pulling down any flats
Give us free money and we don't pay any tax
NHS healthcare, yes please, many thanks
People get stabbed round here, there's many shanks
Nice knowing someone's got our backs when we get attacked
Don't bloody give me that, I'll lose my temper
Who closed down the community centre?
I killed time there, used to be a member
What will I do now until September?
School's out, rules out, get your bloody tools out
London's burning, I predict a riot
Fall in, fall out, who knows what it's all about?
What did that chief say? Something bout the kaisers?
Kids on the street, no they never miss a beat
Never miss a cheap thrill when it comes their way
Lets go looting, no, not Luton
The high street's closed so cover your face
And if we see any rich kids on the way, we'll make 'em wish they stayed inside
There's a charge for congestion, everybody's gotta pay
Do what Boris does, rob them blind

      Boris wants a bridge to sky France. Apparently to be built by carillon. 
      Joking about the last bit 
      seriously, two reasons why this is a bad idea.  First, it it even possible? Second, we think there are problems in Calais now....

      still whinging on about how very dare trump think he can visit the uk and London.  
      Is this deliberate on the part of khan or has he an agenda here?  
      I don't care what section of the so called community he actually represents, he is th major of London.  He needs to be diplomatic  
      trump is the most powerful person on the planet.  He appears to have a special place for the uk (god knows why). He is prepared to do trade deal and seems to support brexit And has little time for the eu.  
      Why then go out of you way to piss him off?  
      Idiot
