Being in the Right Class.

A recent social study in Britain has concluded that the old three-tier class system of working, middle and upper is now outdated. It suggests that a new seven-tier system should be recognised, running from ‘elite’ at the top to ‘precariat’ at the bottom. ‘Precariat’ is a contraction of ‘poor, precarious proletariat,’ apparently.

This is heartening, since it explains why I’m down here at the bottom. It’s because I like alliteration.
