Hilary; When I said "yelled out like that" I meant the way Katie did in the segment. You said you'd watched it, so you should know. It's the mums (and dads) who don't bother getting up off their arse to talk to or discipline their children, instead they yell to catch their attention.
I would also like to say, I did not say anything against the working class. I have working class friends! They haven't got chav names though. Chav doesn't mean working class. But I would be incredibly surprised if Chardonnay, Charmaine or Chantel's mums were intelligent and enjoyable people. But that doesn't mean little Charmaine won't be a lovely and intelligent person.My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014

Honestly, I'd be less likely to be outraged if she talked about judging the kids' parents, and not the CHILDREN THEMSELVES.
I also can't stomach how there are the good names, and then "children like those" in her world... and yet, India doesn't count as a place name :/ and what the heck is wrong with Simon? I've always considered Simon to be kind of an upper-crust British name (more common in England than Canada, but that's just the vibe I've gotten).
This woman just dug herself in to a deeper and deeper hole. I admit, I kind of enjoyed watcher her make a fool of herself. My blood boiled, but I mostly had second-hand embarrassment.Lucia

"Chav" isn't a term I hear used in America, though I've heard it a good deal on the forums as well as the American slurs "red neck" and "white trash" and plain "trashy." I'm afraid I'm a bit prickly on the subject, but I do admit that I bristle at the stereotypes.

Not going to lie, I do judge people on the names they give their children. But I wouldn't judge a child because of the name their parents gave them. I certainly wouldn't want my child to be so shallow to dislike someone because of their name.Girls:
