    A South American grain adopted by hipsters and health freaks. I thinks it's gluten free which would explain why.

    Nothing wrong with being either of the above of course.
    Thanks. Is it worth trying?

    1) how is weed immoral? And on average I'd say they do less actually
    2) on average they are, but only because they are prepared to spend more money on tutors etc.
    3) correct and very clever. You should petition the government to build a) more housing and b) abolish the free school/grammar schools so all schools are similar.
    4) No, they don't.
    5) I call The Sun and Daily Mail readers racist and xenophobic, it just so happens that that overlaps with said demographic

    3) Racist both newspapers have been complaining about the Stephen Lawrence's case

    Stephen Lawrence The Mail campaigned vigorously for justice over the murder of in 1993. On 14 February 1997, the Mail front page pictured the five men accused of Lawrence's murder with the headline "MURDERERS", stating "if we are wrong, let them sue us".4) most people do not read newspapers

    There are working class people who deserve the utmost respect, i.e. people who are doing their best to get out of it. Most of the dislike is directed towards people who don't seek to improve and those are generally perceived as slobs.
    Interesting point about "getting out" of being working class. There's nothing a priori wrong with being working class. Have you read Owen Jones' "Chav"? It's really interesting, and it talks about how wanting to move out of being working class is a fairly recent phenomena. People used to take pride in being working class, and it wasn't seen as something you had to work your way out of at all.

    Thank you, I may need that luck. Do you mind if I PM you? I'd like to get your thoughts on contracts and by extension, the state of the NHS.
    Sure - fire away. I (along with just about every other doctor) am pretty fatigued with the contract, but I can definitely tell you about the state of services where I'm working at the moment.

    I'm not a massive Owen Jones fan, but I thought it was a very well-written and sensitive book. He doesn't say that there's no point in working classes being aspirational; he says that in the past, there wasn't such a "stigma" (and yes, I think that for some people, it is a stigma to say it) in being working class. Precisely because "we're all middle class now", we're told that there's a certain shame to being from a working class background - to go by the media, the working-class drink, fight and sign on the dole. Whilst there's always been aspiration, it's only in the past thirty odd years that it's a stigma *not* to be aspirational.*

    Reason Why
    1) their amoral e.g smoking weed at university
    2)They believe their children are more intelligent than working class children
    3)They buy houses by the best performing schools so their children will get a place
    4)They look down on people who live in social housing
    5)they call working class white people racist & xenophobic. When the white work class work in low skilled jobs with Eastern Europeans. Also are more likely to have mixed race children.
    I disagree with point 5.

    Firstly, Eastern Europeans are White,

    Secondly, having mixed race children isn't bad, at all. Don't judge someone for having a mixed race child. It's their child, not yours.

    firstly eastern Europeans are every ethnicity just like British people

    Secondly, having mixed race children isn't bad, at all. Don't judge someone for having a mixed race child. It's their child, not s.
    secondly I love the fact that white working class people have more mixed race children than other social classes

    Fair enough.

    How do you define what class each person is in?

    For example; if someone grew up in a council house with sweet fa but now works in a professional(stereotypical middle class) job, owns their own house not via right to buy, travels abroad a lot etc are they now middle class?

    Do you ask for this first then before you decide if you'll like someone?
