Whitehawk and neighbouring chav-hole Moulsecoomb are the third world areas of Sussex…

There is nothing good that I can say about the ‘Hawkers’. The area is a dive. Hawkers have yet been able to grasp the English language. Instead, everything they say has to end in ‘innit’ or ‘nah, mate’.

The little chav kids think they really are something special, and the parents, well, they are a lost cause. Tattoo’d to the nines, more fat than you could imagine, cheap clothes that smell of cigarettes, body odour and have less intelligence than a concrete slab. They make Waynetta Slob look attractive in comparison.

Crime in this area is high – domestics, robbery, shoplifting, vehicle/violent crime are common. Even though the police try to restore order in the chavvy little area, they are greeted with abuse. With the mere sight of anything police related people look out their windows, come out of their chav council houses, and the little scroats gather round trying to look hard in front of the police.

I had the ‘pleasure’ of working in Whitehawk for one night and was amazed at how idiotic a lot of the kids are. I was approached by a spotty Blazin’ Squad wannabe who called himself ‘the King’. The lad hadn’t even finished school. Twat.

Baseball caps worn in an unfashionable way, Burberry, shell suits, Luis Vuitton, Reebok classics, McKenzie and lots of jewellery are the norm with chavlings. The boys have greasy hair that has been bleached with domestos and the girls have more colours in their hair than a rainbow.

Teenage pregnancy in the ‘Hawk is high. Example: Wayne shags Crystal for a dare one night when they attend a chav party, drinking White Lightning. Wayne boasts that he’s the ‘daddy in town’ for getting laid. Nine months later he is, only he is no longer around to adjust to fatherhood thus leaving Crystal to bring up Courtney/Casey/Bobby/Page/Britney or whatever the poor kid has been named with help from the social.

It’s rare to see a vehicle with four wheels or with valid car tax. If for some strange reason you have to venture into Whitehawk, don’t leave your car unattended. The chavs can sense fresh meat and will take your car or anything within it seconds after you have disappeared.

I could go on, but to sum it up – Whitehawk is a scum filled place, with no hopers who either already are or will end up on the dole.

I’m pleased that I live in Hove, even if it is only a few miles away from the Third World.


Would you believe it? A ‘hawker has contacted me asking for the personal details of Mr E, the user who posted this article. I can only speculate on why she needs this information, to get a lynch mob together perhaps? She has also contacted Sussex Police. What she expects them to do I do not know, is slagging off ‘hawkers a criminal offence? Here is her email and my reply for your delectation!

Dear Ilivehere

I am contacting you to complain about the the item on your website (named above) about the people of the Whitehawk estate in Brighton. This has been drawn to my attention by some young people who have had the item circulated.

Whitehawk is one of the mosr deprived areas in Britain and does suffer from some of the anti-social behaviour described, but publishing this kind of hate filled invective is not the way to make things better. The children in Whitehawk already suffer from prejudice against them because of the estate’s reputation and this article has caused great offence and hurt. It does nothing to help the problems on this estate – in fact could make things worse.

The writer Mr E should be asked to withdraw his comments and apologise for the offence he has caused. If not, he should have the courage of his convictions and publish his real name and contact details.


Brighton resident

…and my reply!

Dear Cathy,

Try and picture me giving a s**t, why not send your ill informed letter of complaint to the local paper!

Kind Regards

iLiveHere Webmaster.

    You may think this a bit extreme but, I heard someone on the bus the other day saying to her friend that the residents of Whitehawk should all be rounded up and deported to Syria. Yes, I thought that was odd because I looked it up on the bus shelter and Damascus was not on the route, I think the farthest it goes is Churchill square, may be wrong.

  • Pammillam

    Think this place is disgusting, spent 15 minutes on the 1A, first being rammed by a pram then verbally abused by the stupid “woman”,and her horror bag of a mother, they just wouldn’t shut up, I had to get off the bus as I was afraid I was going to be drawn into a slanging match that no doubt would lead to them becoming violent. No point defending myself as the situation was futile. Her and her horrible mother both kept shouting at me, not once did they apologise or even have any inkling that they were behaving badly despite other passengers asking them to just “apologise to the nice lady”, as I got up to leave she shouted ” she’s paranoid, look at her she thinks everyone’s against her”.
    What I was actually thinking was this nasty peice of work needs to master birth control or be sterilised.

      oh shut up yu old bint lol

  • MrJJ

    Mr.E sounds intimidated in his article, you are not clever for putting these people down. Someone said its like racism, not because it’s “classist” but because it’s hating on the grounds of prejudice and sterotyping. Like he went for a drive through Whitehawk and some people made fun of him. Instead of confronting them, or simply not caring… He manifested his anger, went home, got his laptop out, and wrote a bitchy little article.
    Hope you feel better Mr.E! We all have to vent sometimes.

    Whitehawk and Moulsecoomb are great, when the inhabitants stay there and don’t crawl into the city centre causing problems. I wish there was a way of putting a great wall around Brighton, with Whitehawk, Moulsecoomb and Hangleton on the outside. THEN it would be a fabulous place to live. Every time I’ve had to call the police about some brawl or crime, the toe rag has ALWAYS been from Whitehawk! Funny, that…

  • Mike

    Come to molscoombe and say that you c**t

    • Roberrta

      How ironic. Although I don’t suppose you know what that word means, and still wouldn’t even if I tried to explain it to you. Even more ironic is you don’t even know how to spell Moulsecoomb! 😀

  • ViKing

    The fact comments need moderation, and hate perpetuation is okay’d by that moderation is all an intelligent person needs to know about this web page!!

    This type of hate perpetuation, is on the same level as racism.

  • ViKing

    Chavscum webmaster. You are so smart and an inspiration… Could you imagine if people actually said that to you… :)

  • ViKing

    Lol… Anyone spouting any none sense about chats and chav areas aren’t nearly as intelligent as they think they are. Perpetuating hate through a lack of social understanding is far from clever. Simply, you would be the exact same person as the people you slander had you lived in the same environment and had the same up bringing!

  • MrJ

    Having lived and grown up in Moulsecoomb, and now working in Whitehawk along with lots of other areas across Brighton and Hove, I would challenge any of you who have negative comments to make about either area, in particular the mystery that is MrE.

    I would challenge that I am probably a far more intelligent, well mannered, respectful, better educated, more principled, well rounded human being, than any of you and I am the result of a council estate upbringing. Whilst the clear purpose of this article and the consequential backlash is sheerly for your amusement, it makes me wonder what level of intelligence it takes for someone to spend their time writing misinformed articles on the internet. (and before you ask what i’m doing, mine is a comment not an article)

    Anyway I welcome some low witted, avoiding the actual point remark back.

    Kindest Regards


  • newcomer

    I am looking to move to Brighton and may have a exchange in the whithawk area, I know this article was written some time ago, can anyone tell me if the area has changed??

    • MrE

      Don’t even consider it.

    • Kayle

      No LOL. Avoid Whitehawk like the plague

  • missL

    What a lovely place Hove is, Whitehawk is nowhere near perfect but at least you won’t get shot dead in the street!! I work in Hove and it’s a total dive, full or cocaine addicts and p*ssheads! Lets have a vote.. is the author of this article a cocaine addict, p*sshead or both? My money is on him being a single, semi professional cocaine addict in his late 20’s to early 30’s…..

    • MrE

      MissL, 9 years ago when this was written, Hove was a much nicer place. I now enjoy more idyllic views somewhere else in the world.
      It seems like no-one was interested in your vote, and you were wrong on all counts anyway.
      Much love, Mr E.

        As a Brighton resident who grew up in Whitehawk and Woodingdean in the 1960s I can clearly remember some-one being shot dead in the street in Whitehawk with a shotgun about 20 years ago now. It happens in most towns these days. I live in Kemp Town and here the police shot dead some-one in the street who came out of a property they had surrounded a couple or so years ago. The man came out of a building with guns blazing, literally. And we have murders in Kemp Town and in Hove and Southwick and kids slaughtered in our parks. These have often been carried out by outsiders coming into the area.

        If anything can be said about this area it is that most people who shoot at people down here in Brighton don’t miss yet very few of us had shooting lessons in school. It must be a natural gift I suppose.

        Whitehawk has cleaned up its act a little. We hear far fewer police cars and vans and ambulances tearing past us on the way to Whitehawk these days. It may be that Whitehawk is getting better, but may just be an example of police cuts.

        I can honestly say that every area I have been in in the UK has it’s upper and lower societies, the haves and have-nots. In every area I have come across drug dens and needles in the streets; it isn’t unique to Brighton. But the drug fuelled crazies do still kill each other and almost every other person seems to be on one form of medication or another. This isn’t simply an opinion but a fact of life these days.

        Sadly, none of our rulers seem to be able to offer people any reason to live and seem to be as criminally minded as anyone from any deprived area of the UK. I genuinely would rather trust ‘Hawkers’ than any politicians who have no genuine care for anyone but themselves. And I can personally state that in WHitehawk, if you are down on your laurels there will always be some kind-hearted people who will help pick you back up.

        I have lived in Hove and Whitehawk and of the two I would chose to live in Whitehawk any day. So if you are thinking of coming to live here in sunny Sussex by the sea remember two things: The area is beautiful and we can all shoot straight.
