Should chavs get the vote?

At a house party for my mate neils 20th me and my boyf were having a obligitory fag break outside when we saw a large group of chavs getting pulled into a police van-which sparked a huge debate about whether chavs should get the vote.
His arguement was that anyone that isnt politically aware shouldnt be able to vote about issues that concern the population. Although he also said he shouldnt be able to vote on things that he knew nothing about.
My aguement was that he was being heavily stereotypical about chavs-i mean, we all know they wear crap clothes and swear a lot, but can we honestly say none of them are politically aware-so saying chavs shouldnt get the vote is really ignorant. I also believe that everyone should have the vote because otherwise the population wouldnt be fairly represented.
What does everyone think?

Room Survey Activity

For the Visual Sociology Room Survey Activity I decided to focus on the living room in my student house in South Leamington.

Itís a very untidy and dirty room by nature (!) so I thought it would give me more scope when photographing a large amount of pictures.

All in all I took around 60 photographs but many of those were repeats of the 26 I have chosen, I havnít decided which 6 photos to have as my favourite, but will do by the next workshop.

In answering the questions on the worksheet, I feel my pictures show the economics of my household are actually quite high due to the technology thatís apparent, but style and taste is very low!

The room used is obviously very well lived in and serves multi-purposes, and the inhabitants are obviously comfortable in the room as their own personal belongings (and food!) are scattered everywhere.
