    Default Are you middle class? (according to the Daily Mail)



    I score 0% based on their criteria of owning dubious crap and being a brand whore.

    I must therefore be upper class. I will check later with my butler.

    Usual dross from the Wail.

    Most of the %'s are so small, anyway, what on earth are they trying to prove?

    The Aga is the most hilarious, I thought you were middle class if you had a Wimpy home, these days, nowhere near enough space to have an Aga.
    They are normally sat in houses outside London, worth a lot more than the middle classes can afford.

    My butler is now claiming that he is middle class, as I lend him the Brompton to get the groceries and I gave him a couple of Jam albums on vinyl

    ah written by Mr Ettytwerp

    The list was created by etiquette expert William Hanson for insurers esure. He said: ‘The middle classes have always been known for their love of material possessions and for keeping up with their neighbours, with suburban one-upmanship taking place on a daily basis.
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I've got a Rayburn, came with the house. It's about 40 years old and runs on oil. Great when there's a power cut in winter, you still have a working cooker.
    As for things like a "Smart TV", how many "lower class" people have them, and what about "upper class" ones?
    Their question should be "do you read the Daily Mail?"
    Answer Yes, you aspire to being upper middle class, but are actually a lower middle class snob with delusions of grandeur and believe that immigrants give you cancer while your house price is not affected by the tax credits you get (and tax reductions you make), but by the benefits cheats who make the headlines.

    I'm not back, just heading up towards the equator later today, then crossing it tomorrow to stay in a "tent" for a few days. Might be last chance at internet connection for a while.

    Technically speaking I'm in Africa, just not on the "mainland", but yes, Nairobi tonight, Samburu tomorrow, Masai Mara a few days later, after that finishing with a bit of charity work at an elephant orphanage.
