Interesting dialect here. Some of the subtitles are a little... off.

I'm sure she understands him as much as her other ten offspring from various fathers. After all, there's probably only a twelve or thirteen year age-gap.

Anyway, whatever about mothers understanding, this is a good reason why teaching 'regionalisms' and other slang should be carefully thought out beforehand.

Standard drunken Northern accent, the subtitles are a lot funnier than what he's actually saying.

Where was this lifted from? Some TV "documentary" on the UK police? I sure as hell hope that the people in it have given their permission for it to be plastered all over YouTube.

Dear Teacher in Rome,

Looks like the British version of "Cops" or "The First 48, or "Lockup"" on 'Mercan TV.

Regards,

I feel a bit bad for the guy. He's obviously not at his best - and here he is, off his head, and being made a spectacle of.

Yes, you are right - a little unfair of me. My only defence is the use of the label 'chav' in the video title.
