Unfortunately dtds and their friends have snaffled most of the decent cakes. Only some cornflake chocolate crispies left, and they're looking a bit tired.

Amrapaali not sure that's true. It thinks its in the right place. But there is something fundamentally dishonest about all those super privileged people (and trust me, they are), presuming to speak for the underprivileged. Not saying wealthy and privileged people can't have a social conscience and do good, but there's something particularly condescending about the Guardian currently IMHO.

That's me! And I am middle aged too.

Well, I'm a reader of the Guardian (we can't afford the newspapers/need the money for stuff like food or heating, but my work has tons of newspapers and asks for all to be taken home to save binning, so I happily oblige as far as the Guardian goes) and I'm a leftie and I'm not sure about MC. I am skint as hell, so I will stand on the sidelines as a 2/3er.

I prefer Do-gooding middle-class lefties, more accurate imo.

Kveta Tue 07-May-13 16:41:04

I'm one.

You called?

I read the Guardian on Saturday and the next day the Sunday Times. Yes, I know.

I am confused.

Amrapaali Tue 07-May-13 16:49:56

Hmmm quesadilla, I do remember some articles with a patronising tone. But I assumed it was just some chip on my shoulder on a particular issue.

Should I switch to the I? smile

UnChartered Tue 07-May-13 16:51:33

Herring care to join me on the 'not sure' bench?

AnnaFiveTowns Tue 07-May-13 16:52:17

Me! Saturday Guardian only. Takes me all week to read it. Like The Independent too though.

LadyClariceCannockMonty Tue 07-May-13 16:53:28

Me! Hello. The increasingly poncy food/cooking stuff at the weekend is starting to get my weasel though, and the truly dreadful 'fashion'.

But I loves it.

Dawndonna Tue 07-May-13 16:53:50

Here I am. Guardian Reading Leftie that doesn't like muesli and isn't currently wearing sandals.

As a dedicated cryptic crossword nut, I have to say that, in my opinion, the Guardian's offerings have the most variety, wit and style.

Exhaustipated Tue 07-May-13 16:55:52

Yup, that's me champagne socialist
I get it (Guardian not champagne) delivered to my kindle and everything. Just not the same as the proper paper version on Saturdays though...

Machli Tue 07-May-13 16:55:53

Yes not particularly middle class here either, well it's kind of confused, I am an army child what does that make me?

I am here anyway.
