    My grandmother was sold into service at 14″

    One of my Great Great Uncles was sent to Australia for stealing. Do I win?

    Depends what he stole -but so far you appear to be on to a winner

    the goods of Viscount Andover

    Splendid work.

    Just disqualified yourself for a middleclass theft. Now it had been a loaf of bread………

    The aspect of this that really amuses me is the people who claim to be working class still despite being so obviously not – from their job to their spending habits.

    No! You’re just a bit of a **** really!

    Welcome back SueW 🙂

    Well I have a 1st degree and have a good, technical job to which I’m quite committed, but completely lack personal ambition, and am a bit of a spendthrift, don’t own a home etc.

    I’m in the jumped-up working class class.

    No! You’re just a bit of a **** really!

    That as well, my friend; for I am many things, to many people…

    Ate in Rick Steins seafood restaurant in Padstow. Thought it was babber. The wife nicked a fanny rag bag out of the toilets though, but it hardly made up for the ridiculous bill.

    and have slept with aristocracy

    Elf, you know that song ‘Common People’ by Pulp.. that’s about you isn’t it?

    How many middle class points do I earn for owning a Prius?

    It cooduv bin, Mol, it cooduv bin..

    I was at a proper middle-class uni when that song came out, and it was so true. Most of the kids there were seeing the seedy, grotty underbelly of a big city for the first time, and just had no idea of how life was for so many people here. Same in all big city unis I spose.

    Twas fun…

    …and I get all my opinions from the Guardian

    Work for the council, live in chorlton, ride a bike, read the guardian/socialist worker, vegetarian, eat haloumi cheese, real ale, travel rather than holiday.

    Has he flounced from here too? His BikeRadar flouncing was a thing of beauty as well.

    I take my fish and chips home (not cod nat.) and put balsamic vinegar on them.

    First time I ever had Balsamic stuff on chips was in your kitchen, always have it now. 😛

    I own an electric toothbrush and have a copy of ProCycling as reading material in the loo.

    Comparing a pathetic one week flounce with SurfMats, disgraceful.

    I actually missed Surfmats flounce. Though I note it is talked about in hushed reverential tones, due to its awesomeness. Is there a link to it?

    And on the middle class front… I got my breakfast from Greggs. Does this make me underclass? Or below that even?

    No – makes you ultra middle class if you are doing it ironically. I hear their coffee is actually rather good.

    If you have your food delivered by Occado you’re a middle-class t*ss*r.

    … because I’m a terrible social climber. I used to drink just coffee and in the 80s it had to be Gold Blend. But that’s just so last century or millennium even. I’m nothing without my frappuccino, skinny latte or iced caramel macchiato. And young Anselm is off to Gordonstoun next year. And I never use the word you, when one can use the word one.

    Quite right. We’ve switched to Waitrose now.

    Betty’s Tea Room in Ilkley, Alan Bennett shops there when he’s in town.

    I also recognise Alan Bennett when i see him, extra point i think.

    Ilkley, as in Yorkshire?
    ‘middle class’ and ‘Yorkshire’ are surely mutually exclusive.

    Lol.. I suspect if you went in there and asked for a ‘long black’ your response would be a snigger and they’d ask ‘a long black what?’

    ‘middle class’ and ‘Yorkshire’ are surely mutually exclusive

    AndyP – been to Harrogate? It’s where STW’s own king of the middle class dilemma lives – MF.

    Hora famously, despite being from Yorkshire, didn’t know who Alan Bennett was. Alan was gutted apparently

    What you having for lunch then chutney?

    And regarding Greggs, there was no irony involved. And the coffee was good. As is Macdonalds coffee. Apparently. So I’ve heard anyway
