Hard to believe that Keighley was once one of Britain’s wealthiest and prosperous towns in days gone by. Since then, the town just seems to spiral into a hopeless decline. Although a lot of the town’s old heritage remains, there has undoubtedly been a shift in the emphasis of culture in the town and we have all been forced to turn our heads to the rise of a new era: the era of the chav.

People have been posting listings regarding our new dominating class, a class that seems to be able to recruit more and more people by the day; white, asian, black, rich or poor. There must be something appealing about these chavs…

A lot of emphasis went on what they wear but everybody knows that that is just a fashion statement and way of associating themselves with the term chav! The real problem seems to lie in the almost cloned attitude of most chavs, which is to create as many social problems as possible in their town. What the hell is your people’s problem?

Whenever anybody asks me where I’m from, I always hesitate before saying Keighley. Not because we have a lot of chavs or a large ethnic mixture of people, but because of all the s**t and negative impact some small minded people have, causing the town to fail socially and eventually economically.

It’s all pretty irrelevant now anyway. I did what most people with money in Keighley did and got the hell out of there.
