It’s an old stereotype that I have come across multiple times while here but are the British obsessed (or are everybody else for thinking it) with class?
from a Simon Hoggart article recently:
“A wise American reporter based in London once told me that every British news story is, deep down, about class. Every American story, he said, is about race. There’s enough truth in that to be worth considering. Look at Madeleine McCann (middle-class parents, so they can’t be at fault), Shannon Matthews (working-class family, dodgy) or David Cameron (a toff – need I say more?).”
Agree or not? Any other stories spring to mind?
