SUMMARY Chavs By Owen Jones

FREE DOWNLOAD ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ç Owen Jones REVIEW Chavs By Owen Jones î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB In modern Britain the working class has become an object of fear and ridicule From Little Britain’s Vicky Pollard to the demonization of Jade Goody media and politicians alike dismiss as feckless criminalized and ignorant a vast underprivileged swathe of society whose members have become stereotyped by one hate filled word chavsIn this acclaimed inves. 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 Those days and those feelings are gone and they are not gone because the people on estates have suddenly changed What has changed is the representation of a whole class a majority indeed of people across the entire medium of communication There has been a concerted effort on the part of politicians and media institutions to label the entire working class as cheaters swindlers oafs alcoholic racist violent thugs who are a burden on our economy and our public services This didn t happen overnight it is a steady drip drip of misinformation and accusation that has gathered pace over the years It started with Margaret Thatcher and her liberalisation agenda The privatisation of public services coupled with the decimation of manufacturing created a cocktail of terror in the heartlands of northern England particularly and the rest of the country generally In coal mining towns all there was was the coal mine To de industrialise alone without giving thought to re energising those areas was positively criminal and has resulted in huge swathes of people who have been lost to our modern allegedly burgeoning society That is just one way the Tories and Labour after them ruined the lives of countless ordinary people The trick however wasn t to attack the working class employment alone it was to turn the rest of society against them Once these people couldn t get work it was their own fault we are told and the tabloids jump on any benefit cheat story they can lay their hands on to which the end point is always they re all like this Since then we have let government get away with this you re poor and it s your fault attitude The fact that over half of all politicians in the House of Commons went to public private in reality schools should give some idea of why this has come about they are also paid a minimum of 68000 per annum putting them in the top 9% of workers in the country Ever since the poor acuired the vote the ruling class has been terrified of the power of democracy so what do they do Instead of governing in the interests of the majority they take away their options Is it any wonder that the bottom decile of the population have the fewest people who go and vote There is no one who represents their views and when that happens the far right will be the first shoulder to cry on as it fills a vacuum in its own cowardly way The media also highly public school oriented is eually culpable When was the last time you saw a working class person on TV a real one That means not some sick Little Britain sketch that pokes fun at socially retarded single mothers or the caricatures we see on the Jeremy Kyle show other exploitative chat shows are available It s almost impossible to find any non derogatory representation for the majority of society on our main medium of communication When the BBC had its white working class season they had programmes made by and for the chattering classes as though working men and women were there to be poked with sticks and observed like some new species discovered in the jungles of Borneo We have an elite media reporting on an elite governing class who in turn carry out policies for elite corporate employers which are reported back to the general population by those same elite media operatives where do working people get a look in Owen Jones book gets to the very heart of this subject with his passionate prose and elucidates the argument much better than I can He crystallises the debate well through interviews with people on all sides of the class spectrum while proving his overriding point that the criticism levelled at the working class for the past 30 years has been false misguided and unfair He calls for a new politics of understanding and fairness a change to the rigidity of society that only occasionally lets a poor person in to it to spice up the gene pool The best trick of all was getting the working class to fight among themselves for the scraps that fall from the top table to the floor and getting the middle classes to think that it s the ones at the bottom that is ripping them off Benefit fraud comes to virtually nothing when compared with tax evasion and avoidance by the rich but when was the last time Philip Green The Barclay Brothers Lord Rothemere and their ilk were on the cover of tabloids for the amount they rip us all off They never are because we have the powerful people in power and other powerful people checking up on powerful people and it s in all their interests to change nothing In the working class they found their perfect scapegoat to keep their sordid little racket going and everyone fell for it Double Indemnity - Murder for Insurance up
