Series 2, Episode 1 - Class

According to tonight's contributors the class system is now more complicated than ever: the toffs have run out of money, the middle class runs the country, footballers are royalty, and everyone claims to be working class because it's the only class with street cred.

Further details

Our mission here at Grumpy HQ is to lift the lid on some of the nonsense we have to put up with in life - and this week it is on the subject of class, apart from anything else it's all got so complicated... the toffs have run out of money, the middle class run the country, footballers are royalty, and everyone claims to be working class because it's the only class with street cred.

You don't know where you are anymore with class. Except we all know that napkins are very good and serviettes are bad, loos are acceptable and toilets are unacceptable, lounges are ghastly, but living rooms are spiffing, and saying pardon is an absolute no no. One way or another the class system is alive and well.
