We're all working class now
Among various tired academicesque cliches ('false consciousness', 'social construct' etc ad nauseam) this no-doubt bearded leftie made the astonishing definition of 'working class' as anyone who worked using their hands or their brains.
Apart from politics and some branches of academia, can anyone suggest a job that is not, by this definition, working class? As far as I can tell, Investment bankers, City lawyers, brick-layers carpenters and surgeons are now all of a class. Maybe it's time for a re-definition. How about working class and non-working class? For those of us who bother to go out to work and those of us who don't.
