CHERYL GIBBS: I’m scared at how a feeling of fear is now part of life

Have your say

According to a recent 
survey, 60 per cent of us say we are working class even though we in fact have middle class incomes.

I think I know why this is.

Basically, we’re emb-arrassed about admitting that we’re actually middle class.

But in my opinion, the fact we are embarrassed about being middle class just reinforces the 
fact that we are middle class.

That’s because middle class people are exactly 
the sort of people who would be embarrassed by something like that!

I hope that makes sense!
