THIS WEEK IN 2000: Class gap at glorious Goodwood
Despite the ex-prime minister, Tony Blair, believing class divides were a thing of the past, separate enclosures for differing clienteles at the GoodwoodÂ racecourse told a different story.
There were miles of Savile Row suits, cigars the size of loo rolls and Rollers galore lining the carÂ park. These wereÂ the people who spentÂ most of their day in their expensive boxes in the Charlton stand, far away from the more downmarket Gordon enclosure.
Mr Cramb (pictured) wasn't happy. Jabbing a finger towards the upper class enclosure beyond the fence, he questioned: '˜Why are all the benches over there? Don't they think we want to sit down too?'
'˜I've complained about it before but they get the benches because they've got theÂ money.'
