British University cheerleading team cancels chav-themed night out after right-on students moaned they were 'appropriating working class culture'

"Chav" is a contemptuous term for assertive young British lower class people who often wear "shell suits", colourful tracksuit trousers matched with a colourful top

The Bristol University Cheerleading Society was set to host a chav night, but one of the cheerleaders complained that the theme could be seen as an appropriation of working class culture.

While the group's secretaries argued that 'not all working class people are chavs' this claim was ignored after the student union's equality office became involved.

Equality, Liberation and Access Officer Hannah Dualeh said she was keen to take a hard-line stance against the 'demonising of caricatures' and 'classist and horrible' behaviour and urged the society to change the theme.

She told student newspaper The Tab she was shocked 'by the lack of concern or apology' regarding an event that 'perpetuates oppression towards students from working class backgrounds', according to her social media output.

But the cheerleading troupe, seemingly unphased by Ms Dualeh's comments, proceeded to rename their event: 'Comfortable tracksuit bottoms and jumper night.'

The group was slammed again and accused of turning the criticisms into a joke before renaming the event simply 'social'.

Who really cares? The stupid faux aristocracy are just a bunch of wankers. The real aristocracy are not any better. The world is full of wankers. They used to be aristocracy but are now politicians and cashed up business people.
