In quite a perceptive article by Alice Miles in The Times last Wednesday,
November 7th, the usually right-on, trendy journalist has the title
"What's in it for us middle classes, Gordon?"
Ms Miles notes that she comes over middle class again when her child is going
to enter the educational system. The Times' columnist says
"It's definitely something to do with the slightly righteous tones adopted by
Brownite ministers and their acolytes about our duty to the underprivileged."
