Are we allowed if we can't stand the Guardian and prefer the Independent?

Moi

NO NO NO Betty

Is this a new quiche?

Hullygully Tue 07-May-13 16:14:54

Do two a quiche make?

Perhaps not yet.

I'm middle class and (basically) a leftie but can't bear the Guardian. So no.

DeepRedBetty Tue 07-May-13 16:21:54

Yoo-hoo Quesadilla I'm doing tea and cakes in the next room along the corridor. <pointedly ignores Hully>

I read the guardian (online) and consider myself a leftie but I am not middle class and never will be.

Do I count?

That describes me!

Whats wrong with the guardian?

AnythingNotEverything Tue 07-May-13 16:23:31

Me too.

You can be middle class AND a former teenage parent, right?

gindrinker Tue 07-May-13 16:24:21

Yup. Waves.

Me! Love the Guardian and consider myself to be MC despite being slightly too poor to really count blush. Definitely a leftie.

I hate its smug tone and in-with-the-north-Londom gang assumptions, that's what's wrong with it. I also object to taking lectures about social democracy from people who are 80 per cent plus Oxbridge and wealthy.

Me! Me! Pick me!

quesadilla Tue 07-May-13 16:26:40

And yes to tea and cakes please Betty

EauRouge Tue 07-May-13 16:29:07

Yes to all three.

BitBewildered Tue 07-May-13 16:30:42

I'm a Guardian reading leftie, but way too skint to be considered MC. I'll just loiter ...

Arkady Tue 07-May-13 16:30:43

Guardianista Pride March? I'm in.

FrancesFarmer Tue 07-May-13 16:30:58

Count me in.

It's a good newspaper. Always something interesting to read. And I'm happy with the leftie slant as the internet seems to be dominated by angry right-wingers.

But quesadilla its heart is in the right place. So can I sign on please?

Middle class is a state of mind bewildered. And by the way there are several middle classes. A Telegraph reader and a Guardian reader are both (probably) middle class but worlds apart.

I am but only by default. Guardian is so twee and annoying but DH buys it daily because he loves being the only Red in our resolutely Daily Mail village. Leftie and MC, oh yes.
