the ironic thing is that these days a lot of posh boys love this sort of music
TheGodOfGears2012
This song owns the stereotype that we are all posh and drink tea and crumpets
Velvet Guitar
This song is a sincere reflection of the times in the UK. If anything, this song chants for change, revolution or reform

This should've been on the soundtrack for Kingsman!

I did an asignment on this for English in a posh Catholic school, nearly got expelled xD

What is most annoying is how this kind of life is aspirational to those who actually come from decent backgrounds. I live in Surrey in what many would consider a middle class area, yet you still have kids mugging, stabbing and in some cases killing each other just because they feel a need to prove how un-middle class they are. The Tories have made anyone with money look like scum.
CxerRy96
Britain needs this song now more than ever
Jack Poulson
I'm usually not a big rap fan.. But this is an amazing example of lyrical genius! To all the people saying "it's nothing to be proud of"- he's not saying it is.. What this song is saying is that it is the propaganda and the conservative politics that aid to fuel the reputation of council estate youthes! And that these kids aren't dumb, because they're already discriminated against when it comes to education, employment opportunities etc. they have learned to get by through fear and fueling these viewpoints that are forced upon people! You find trouble in most areas these days! But growing up on a council estate I can tell you that there are a lot more good people than "dick heads".
CALiGeR190
This, world, is what the majority of Englishmen are really like.
steven durrant
Most important and probably astute line for me: "Who closed down the community centre?" Tories are agents of darkness. They drive disabled people to suicide.
Bruno .B
She Said and Ill Manors both from Plan B? Difference,huge.
PraetorShinzon
Being poor in the U.K. is being a King in Somalia. Having hot showers, food, a beautiful country to explore, and internet is amazing. "Good enough" is absent in the human mind and ego. Let's all run countries while we are at it.

Love all the people who act smart thinking this was sampled from a singer... It was sampled from Dmitri Shostakovich symphony no.7 in C Major. Great use of the sample though and good song
poisonivypm
Holy shit the tune is 400% nabbed from Peter Fox- Alles Neu

Dan Palmer
From a working class town and I know a load of private school kids, the level of ignorance is astonishing, they don't know anything about growing up poor
Ellis Smithson
Americans will be shocked if they actually knew what the majority of England is, as portrayed in this video.
Kayleigh H
Just a reply to some of the silly comments. If you don't realise he's being ironic then maybe you are not as ''educated'' as you think you are. Lol
Johann Schmidt
When can we detach London from the mainland and float it into the Atlantic?
CoalShifter1983
In Liverpool where I'm from most of the "Chavs" are from rich backgrounds. They all live in £200k+ detached houses in posh areas yet go out smoking weed and causing terror. :/
James Matthews
Everyone seems to act like this is a competition to see who lives in the worst area, but seriously, Britain as a whole is a mess. A lot of rough areas and a lot of people committing crimes just for the thrill of it. You don't understand unless you actually live here and have experienced it. And it's all down to the government, who just fuel the fire. Don't try to shed light on things when you don't actually know what you're talking about.
Adam Cole
This isn't a song that glorifies violence, riots and looting. Rather it is attempt to satirize the views of those with greater means when they judge the less fortunate. Although it appears to promote a self-fulfilling prophecy of anti-social behaviour, it is actually using the media assumptions of the current political and economic situation as a lampoon. All in all, a very well written song.
Cypher Phoenix
American girls be like want a British guy, there so nice and are all gentlemen.
Hoden Abdirahman
We had to analyse this in English 😂
Soviet PvP
I'm sick of people blaming their backgrounds, and the government, for their behaviour. So many scummy human beings, like those shown in this video, go around yelling abuse at random passers by, live off the government (that they hate, by the way) and generally are a waste of space. There are so many respectable people who came from poor backgrounds who actually work hard and make a contribution to society. I must agree that the education system is terrible. Kids these days never listen or make any effort in the classroom because they're too worried about not looking cool. The government needs to stop being so politically correct and find a solution to this systemic peer pressure that ruins kid's futures.
ANDY KING
Stunning ignorance in the comments. This is a wonderful piece of work. 98.99% of us should relate to this 100%.

James Lewis
his rapping is far superior to his singing. pure fire
Francisco Selgas
I'm from Miami, FL I have to say it's interesting. I imagine London like any other major cities on this planet has multiple facets. Most of what we get over on this side I guess maybe construed as watered down. This does seem though as something common in big cities. The disgruntled youth and class disparity are fuel for anger.
Davy Ro
The reason the corrupt thieving lying bastards who run the country like to promote racism with their friends in the media because they know if we are united we win. We have leeches called royals who dont do a single thing for our benefit. They see us as vermin until it comes to a war, then they need us. They have stolen treasures from all over the world locked away in rooms so no one can see them . These treasures could pay off the national debt instantly. The reason we have a massive national debt is because our leaders wanted to give the bankers billions to save their banks, WHY? The bankers should have been jailed like Iceland did for the frauds they committed. As a country we're now billions in debt through this, everything is being closed our libraries, leisure centres, community centres, local parks and the jobs that go with them to pay this debt. These things effect us not them. Meanwhile the thieving bastards who caused this are still paying themselves million pound a year bonuses. The politicians join the boards of these banks after they leave government and get paid a million a year for attending one 20 minute board meeting a year . Now you know why we pay all that tax, then after being taxed we buy food and fuel to live and pay another 20% VAT on our already taxed earnings. I wish there were more like PlanB spreading the truth instead of millions of fucking sheep believing the bullshit on TV and in the newspapers.

I never understood this aspect of the UK, people act like there's a big gap between rich and poor but I have never seen it. At least where I live in Hong Kong, poor people are really poor and live on a park bench with one pair of clothes that they've worn for the past 10 years and make their money by selling scrap plastic and metal they pick out of bins in the park, while on the same street people live in flats that cost 10,000 pounds a month to rent.
Shrektacular
Nice one leaving the EU lads and lasses! Farage has mugged you all off, oops.

I'm seriously considering starting a political party. Of my own for the working and lower classes.

Plan B started the London riots just so he could make a music video, what a pillock.

He needs to chill out a bit, there isn't a civil war about to erupt or anything.
Charlie Macleod
I love this song
Snakebloke
So let me get this straight: people from council estates are complaining that they're poor, when they don't study and expect a decent job...? Talk about culture of entitlement...
Frank Havertz
This person who directed this video was a little rich boy.
British Pepe
And others ask why Britain is horrible ._.
NexaEntertainment
Total rip of Alles Neu by Peter Fox (great song btw). At least its openly sampled from it, not stolen. :)
Jimbo Jones
All the decriers of this on the threads should understand this is not reflecting anything other than what been true of our society for over a hundred years (and a lot longer) since the publication in 1901 of Rowntree's, 'Poverty: A Study of Town Life'. :S
Luke Dobson
To the people calling the tune catchy. I would like you to know that Plan B stole it from the German singer Peter Fox.
Rich Humphreys
Welcome back Ben. You have been missed.
bonjourmarlene
Does anyone know what the name of the violin thing in the background? I heard it in another song that came out before ill manors and I thought it might be some known play or smth
