Billy no mates

Posted by Dan on August 17, 2007

"Billy no mates: Coined in the youth culture of the UK in the 1990s."

Just some added info on this one. The phrase "Scotty no mates" was very prevalent in Australian youth culture throughout the 1980s. Perhaps Billy no mates is a derivation of this? I believe Scot was chosen as a name as it rhymes with "got" ... as in he's got no mates. A later addition used the name Neville instead of never: He's Scot no mates and Neville will.
