How middle class are you?


Britain still has a gilded stick up its arse about class, doesn’t it? No matter how many times we’re told about social climbers and new money it always comes down to people performatively trying to flaunt their class… although whether they really belong to what they say they do is another matter entirely.

The lines between middle class and posh - properly posh - are constantly blurred as the comfortable middle dress themselves up and the actual aristos like to dress like they’ve just fallen through a charity shop covered in glue.

Here’s a handy quiz for working out exactly who is middle class and who, god help ‘em, is a big old plummy posho.
