New riding boots arrived today, a bit too long so to sit down normally in them, or even to mount up, I need to undo them slightly

And my mother told me earlier that the rail strike this Thursday has been called off. Now, I wonder what the changes are that the 48 hour strike is also called off and the unions accept something very similar to the original proposal?

Both have been called off.

Riding boots for a casual jaunt or riding boots for hunting, dressage etc?

Now there's a surprise...
Was the second called off today? Any sign off an agreement or is it just the unions giving in and realising, yet again, striking won't get them anywhere?

Mainly for sport, mostly polo (just university polo at the moment and will probably be a few years after uni before i start again) and hunting some point in the future, but also have some short boots for formal occasions.

Your above comments confirm it though.

I'm so shocked at the death of Charles Kennedy. I hope his family can find some solace in the fact that he was much admired across the political spectrum.

How so?
I would describe myself as well off or middle class, wouldn't go so far as to say posh

You play Polo and plan on hunting in the future. Those are two very posh things.

I also drink a lot of beer and cider, does that make me working class?

No loads of posh people drink beer and cider, working class people don't hunt or play polo. Also posh is more of a way of behaving whereas working class is generally based on income.

You may be relatively posh to those, like myself, that have never even considered playing polo, call their mother 'mum' and/or live on a council estate in London. To me, you'd be well off, though I personally wouldnt use Posh.

But in much the same way the 100 people who are asked the questions on pointless might just about class as relatively intelligent when put up against a glass of water or, being generous, a 5 year old.

But yes, posh and being able to engage in activities associated with posh people are far from the same.

Fine then, I spend half my life at a bar/pub and the other half staring at a screen for entertainment.

To be fair I wasnt the one calling you posh in the first place I just understood how it could be interpreted that way,

I agree. All I'm saying is one's view depends on where one is.

I wouldn't associate papa with poshness
Father
Although, to be fair, mother/father is mostly when referring to them. Most of the time with father I just stand at the door until he pauses the TV and with both mother/father is to annoy them
Mum/mother is probably half and half talking to her
Also to be fair, many of the 'posher' tendencies are from the last couple of years, for assorted reasons
