    Using this website: http://www.upmystreet.com/enter-loca...ood-profile/l/

    You can find out how your neighbourhood compares to others under the acorn scheme, whic classifies areas based on social and economc standards, from type 1 - 56, using this website to see how you are nationally http://mmedia.glos.ac.uk/modules/mu3...n-brochure.pdf

    Apparently I am type 56, we are all very poor but like buying clothes as a hobby, half of us dont have satelite, we are the bottom 1%, we are the uneducated of the uneducated, religious zealots, unemployment is rife, we all live in overcrowded flats, we are a hub for ethnicminorities and immigrants but we all love politics

    How have you done?

    Avid Daily and Sunday Telegraph readers... it actually makes sense as whenever I go into the shop after lunch none of the Daily Telegraph ones are there but The Sunday Times sells more than the Sunday Telegraph so
