    Default Oh Dear: Uber Doomed...

    The middle classes are facing a "white collar recession" of falling living standards and unemployment as the economy suffers its worst year since 1980, the Bank of England has warned.


    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/f...arns-Bank.html


    'Professor Peter Spencer, economic advisor to the think tank The Item Club, said: "Minus 2 per cent feels really quite rough, baring in mind normality is at least plus 2.5 per cent. You will see an increase in redundancies and everything follows with that. It's all grief for the man and woman in the street. It's a matter of keeping your head down and trying to hold on to your job – a new phenomenon for anyone under the age of 35."

    There are far too many middle classes these days. We need people who actually do stuff.

    Still Labour will soon make us all of equal class. Its only fair.

    Two thing the middle class do well are:
    Save.
    Pay taxes.

    It were better not to discourage these too much.
