Who are the middle class? Are you one? If your not what are you?
Q what am I. I started off as a draughtsman in Palmers the son of an electrical fitter in Reyrolleís who worked his way up to senior management.
I like most of us on the board worked our way up in various companies. What am I now, living with my daughter in. Big house and she and husband run 3 or 4 companies employing 10-20 staff they havenít changed. Nor have Ann and I. Our outlook on life has changed since we both retired.
In the old days there used to be working class, middle class and upper class . There were blue collar, white collar. etc.
To be honest I have never ever found being able to put anyone in any of those categories.
In my life I have met, socialised with people from all walks of life from house painters to millionaires. None of them did I feel that they were any different to me.
Yes I met people that I could not stand much after first meeting but thatís life.
Is there any such thing as class these days, you are what you are or have made yourself.
Does a winner of the lottery change class by their winnings. OK some of them are numbsculls in loosing the lot.
So I will watch the program tonight. If I get past the first 20 mins without switching off I will be surprised.
