Re: BBC 2 at 9 pm how the middle class ???
Alan, My background is similar to yours although my parents didn't own their house. I lived in a council house until marriage. Then successively in a flat above a shop, my own pair of flats, semi-detached house until finally a detached 4 bedroomed house here in South Yorkshire where I intend to remain until I go up the lum at the local crematorium.
I generally agree with your views on class and have had similar experiences in my working life. I think its all an attitude of mind. Yes a lot of the poorer members of society mismanage their finances but some are poor through no fault of their own. Having said that,it amazes me to see street beggars covered in tattoos that I understand costs hundreds of pounds plus young mothers complaining about being hard up discussing their latest Botox injections and yes all with state of the art mobile phones. Am I becoming a curmudgeon?
