Protesting is latest fad for middle class people who want to be different

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.”
