Chav Trains

South West Trains get a raw deal - the chav train from Guildford to London that stops everywhere is always transporting teenage chavs to and fro. Last night, two carriages were closed due to vandalism, and the one I was in had puke on one of the seats. Mingin'.

Having said that, SWT do put the crappiest trains they have on that route, which makes me wonder if that's part of the problem (or would they get smashed up and puked on just as much, even if they were nicer?).

Maybe I'm just getting old, but I don't remember such things happening, even in the baddest old days of British Rail. This presumably means kids are getting more chavvy. It makes one wonder if the usual thing of moving to the suburbs to have kids is such a good idea after all...? (a hypothetical problem in my case, of course!)
