JRM was indeed excellent yesterday, but there's always a time and a place for the John Prescott approach

That and an expensive education. My guess is he’s just fairly comfortable doing these kinds of open events on student campuses that make it easy for people to be confrontational.

Isn’t it now clear that the government doesn’t believe in what it’s doing, can’t even decide how to do it, hasn’t the guts to say so, and is trying to creep forward under cover of fog, wretchedly hoping something will turn up?

Quote:
Rees-Mogg deserves the writer Robert Harris’s appraisal, “a barmaid’s idea of a gentleman”. Barmaids deserve better, though. They see through men more easily than the eager young Tory boys of the ConservativeHome website.
Aheh.

I'm all for that. Be good to demonstrate what happens when a couple of shit flinging journalists and a reality detached activist shareholder are put in charge of anything.

I think having night time thoughts of those three is usually called a nightmare isn't it? Maybe in the form of some kind of Conservahydra

This working class unwashed northerner likes what he sees.

Seriously though it'd be interesting to see the polling on this - I imagine JRM and Boris going down quite well; Gove less so.

TO think that successful working class people should be allowed to continue claim that they're working class when they're obviously not any more kinda means you're refuting the entire concept of social mobility doesn't it? Not that it matters against whether Boris is a world class bluffer incapable of managing his own sock drawer, let alone a country but I'm interested in the working behind a claim that extraordinary.

To be clear, this is not anything classist. I just thought that class was a measurement not a club. As such it doesn't seem down to the individual to choose their class other than for reasons of vanity.

That's actually a very good point. I would argue I continue to be working class but clearly my children will clearly be middle class; my mobility is defined by where I have got to as a working class person (i.e. home owner, type of occupation) as opposed to the nature of my class itself at particular points in my life, but that point is something I hadn't considered.

If you were born or grew up in a property that your parents owned I've got good news for your original standing.

Damn straight. Generally feel very lucky that my folks put in some bloody hard yards to move up before I was even born.

Bloody Beaker folk, coming over here with their beakers. With their drinking vessels.
What's wrong with just cupping up the water in your hands? And licking it up like a cat?
We need to ensure the brightest and best Beaker folk stay in the Iberian Peninsula and fill it with beakers instead of coming over here to the UK and teaching us to drink liquid out of cups.
