I thought having no money was pre requisite of being middle class. after all, money is vulgar. If one does have means, they get squandered of a private education for the brats surely? I'll check Emily Thornberry's page...

On my mothers side, yes. My fathers family were engineers, and both my Granfather and his father before him worked for the Metal Box company as shop foremen. My mothers family lost their money during the war, and their big house in Ealing was badly bombed. My dads parents were very middle class, living in a new detached house on the best road in Ealing, and having a new car every year. I think my mum thought they were a rather gauche...

Last year on vacation with my son and his friends, I decided to have a quinoa salad. I butchered the pronunciation so bad the waitress didn't know what the hell I was ordering.
