this word doesnt come from anything to do with the dole or unemployment, its a north-eastern english word originating from the mining communitys use of different types of lamp whilst doon the pit. An early, dangerous lamp nicknamed the Scotch Davy (Divvie) had a high propensity to explode, and was superseded by safer lamps such as the George Stephenson ([Geordie]) lamp. So someone would be unwise to go down a mine with a Davy/Divvie lamp, hence the word coming to mean a daft or silly person. Non-offensive and can be affectionate.

Divvy...a person who is a bit of a waster, or is unemployed. Comes from the dole, which is DIVided to the unemployed. A shorter version of this is the word Divv, which also means the same thing.
