Another thing that annoyed me was the insistence that there were 'only three' of the 'old' classes. Nonsense. There have always been 6 - Upper, Upper-Middle, Lower-Middle, Upper-Working, Lower-working and Lower.

Even Kate Fox acknowledged that!

Absolutely.

Vy shoddy all 'round, really.

You forget middle-middle - the people Jilly Cooper calls the Weybridges.

Indeed. Seven - and rather more useful than the new lot.

I wonder, does 'lorry drivers' include those who have HGV licences to drive horse boxes? 'Cos if so the Princess Royal's friends are going to be surprised to find themselves downgraded.
