Message to INFODIO readers: investigative journalism, which is what this site does, takes time. Lots of time. Time is money. Visitors from banks' compliance departments, media, academia, and law enforcement, are encouraged to donate generously to our efforts. Media, lifting stuff from here and reprinting as breaking news, ought to remember how untenable it is to try to beat chronology. To all readers, do the right thing, the honest thing: support independent investigative journalism and help us expose rampant corruption.

Is it just coincidence?

That the new term coined by the Brits to define a chavista is Chav?

In light of the definition and wide acceptance of this new piece of popular knowledge I hereby declare that the distinct honour of having produced a term which is both adjective and statements of a social class / political movement ought to be given to the king of Chav and epithomy of vulgarity, a man who lives by its chavista principles; ladies and gentlemen Hugo Chavez President of Chav-Land.
