Pikey adj. Derogatory term for Gipsys. particularly the type that live in communes of stinking caravans with pyres of junked Mk 4 Granadas and heaps of domestic rubbish left festering on public open spaces. c.f. Hackney Marshes today! Note: not the real Romany types , but dirty workshy theiving bastards.
Otherwise, tramp, dosser, one who wears old clothes or someone will stoop to pick up a 2p coin from a street. circa. 1960's UK (SE)
pov, povvo n. Similar to a "gippo" or a "piker", but far, far worse. A pov is easily recognised by a home- done hair cut, supermarket trainers, an ear stud at the age of eight and a permanent smell such as that of mushy peas, cheese or even urine. (ed: a girl matching most of this description used to work with me on an ice cream van I once had - but she didn't smell bad and was a really, really, really nice girl and I loved her heaps!! I wonder where she is now?) c.f. pikey, gippo UK
