to mention my working class background, or to not mention my working class background. this is the Q?

So. It has been a while since I last posted a blog post moaning about the working class struggle. I guess I didn’t want to bore you all silly. I’m still as equally, if not more, bitter about my position in society as i was a year or 2 ago. With the conservative government in,Continue reading “to mention my working class background, or to not mention my working class background. this is the Q?”
