Social Mobility Under Labour

Again, I'm bloody Gobsmacked!

What on earth are they doing? How may I ask are they going to define "working class?" Who is working class? How do you prove you're working class?

Come and get your "I'm a Peasant Stamp" here!

It also just occurred to me that job application forms could now get pretty complicated! Click to enlarge, I hope I didn't leave anything out.


  1. I don't know WHAT class to define myself as. I can't see how you define Middle and Working class any more. I kind of thought that the Middle and the working class were now the same- the class stuck between the Ruling class and the workless class. I guess I'd describe myself as a white collar worker, whatever that means, since I don't own any shirts that are white.

  2. I don't know what I am either. My dad was a mechanic in the army and I run a small business here. I always thought of myself as working class because my family came from the East End of London. I've always had to work hard for a living!

    I think you're right, it should be upper/middle and workshy :)
