From the excellent people who did the ‘Common People’ remix just before the election in 2010, this is also very good.

I watched this yesterday. Ha ha very funny. And I watched the ‘Common People’ one too.

It’s certainly easy to laugh and the posh boys – the Bullingdon Club and all that.
Then I read this article from Spiked today, which really takes a swipe at that easy fun.

‘Too posh for a pasty’ is not a political critique
The excitable attacks on senior Tories for their privileged backgrounds shows up the poverty of political debate.

Maybe that’s just more of their ”contrarianism”.
I know some people who used to wear ”Cole not Dole” badges who will not be impressed.

The irony, of course, is that those currently posing as prolier-than-thou lack the faintest idea of class politics proper. After all, working-class struggle was characterised by a desire to transcend one’s existence as the oppressed class. But as identity politics, ‘class war’ amounts to little more than reveling in proliness while seeking to expose poshness. Which is no politics at all.

Well I thought it was interesting anyway.
