A Working Class Hero Is Something To Be

I took the test which sorts us out between the seven new classes (a talking hat would be more fun) and it told me I'm "traditional working class". My immediate reaction was "piffle" but then I did some thinking...

For the last half of my current existence I've lived in a working class area and done working class jobs. I'm now a "carer" or- as I prefer to think of it- "a housewife".  To round out the picture my politics are- and always have been- robustly Old Labour (meaning, given the chance, I'd nationalize everything that moves).

My first 30 years- my middle class upbringing, elite education and early employment- no longer apply.  I've been born again. I find this a happy thought.
