Perhaps there is a simpler explanation for Labour’s poor performance in last week’s election: the working classes are no more.
That, at least, appears to be the view of Ipsos-MORI, one of the polling organisations who carried out the devastating exit poll on the day. Take a look:
That’s right. The UK, according to the pollsters, now divides into four. You may be affluent or middle-class (lower or upper). And if you’re not one of them, you’re clearly disadvantaged.
Don’t worry…i know the Office for Natinoal Statistics gave up on the working classes years ago. But still….
With thanks to a certain eclectic chicken for bringing this to my notice
