That's a phenomenon for which I'm not sure America has an analog. Closest thing we have is "wiggers", which are probably most like chavs - white boys & girls who act like ghetto/'gangsta'/inner city blacks.
There's also "trailer trash", referring to those who live in mobile home parks (a more formal version of the gypsy-esque collection of caravans we've seen in movies). They're typically very low class people, scantly educated, doomed to early single motherhood, alcoholism, drug abuse, and domestic violence. It's a very tough trap from which a kid might escape. There's no real 'accent', other than a slow, stupid sounding version of a southern drawl. They don't have nearly the violent streak or organizational abilities to compete with pikeys (as we've seen the portrayed)...they're just really dumb.
If the depiction of them in Snatch is even close to accurate, it presents a marvelously fascinating bed for social research. Where did they come from, and why do they remain?
