MIDDLE CLASS people will spend the summer protesting about things to prove they are not typically middle class.
Marching while wearing hats with ear-flaps and singing Joan Baez songs has replaced attending music festivals, after middle class people realised the events had been overrun by the middle-classes.
Janet Fisher, a ceramicist from Stroud, said: “I’ve stopped going on about the time I went to Latitude and almost took some magic mushrooms and instead have unfurled a banner outside the library that says ‘Right Wing Newspapers Are Just Awful’.”
Roy Hobbs, a solicitor from Goldalming, said: “It can get a bit rowdy at these things, especially when the socially disadvantaged get involved, so we’ve organised a special section for ourselves – a bit like the Wild Copse at Bestival.”
He added: “At the recent refugee protest we all brought flasks of ‘builder’s tea’ and home-made pecan flapjacks.
“Typical middle class people wouldn’t have liked it at all.”
