Stuck in the middle with you

27 February, 2009

“we’re middle Englanders, that middle band of people who work really hard and make sure their Bupa’s paid and their school fees are paid and all those sorts of things. We have 102 acres of parkland to look after.” Anthea Turner

So “middle england” is the small subsection of the population that pay to have a fax machine in their hospital room as they queue jump. Who buy their kids the best universities and jobs like their predecessors brought commissions in the army and whose back garden was the subject of the recent publication Gloucestershire – a pictorial guide. That’s not any kind of middle that I recognise.

    Poor ditzy Anthea. Wasn’t she worrying about losing her little home only recently?
