Halls of residence have been fucking shag palaces for the last year. Ask any university estates staff, the bins are full of cans and condoms. I'd have given my right arm for that sort of first year.

Well, I'm with him on the rent. But fees? University teachers have been busting their arses doing it online.
What do they expect for doing their jobs, payment? Not if Jez has his way.

"The biggest danger in Britain today is Starmer and middle class young professionals, but hopefully their desire to upgrade their properties and go to Glastonbury again will overcome their hatred of working class pubs and desire to work from home forever"

The anarcho-crank in my group chat goes full Dave Spart Corbynista.

That’s telling Keith. I don’t know who this shunned candidate is but I assume she’s a swivel eyed loon that’ll make Labour look like twats.
She's a councillor in Liverpool shew's been made into a martyr becasue Labour suspended the process and she and two other candidates weren't invited to re apply naturally left twitter has reacted with it's usual degree of outrage convinced it's a plot to stop socialist candidates from being selected.

With the fallout from the Joe Anderson business still landing, the Corbyn club are accusing anyone even vaguely associated with him of being complicit in his actions. Turns out that surprisingly, that means most of the local party.

Anyone who looks at the rise of WFH and doesn't see the potential for ending brain- and population drain from working class areas, the stabilisation and equalisation of property prices, the opening of a greater variety of jobs and education for those outside a few golden postcodes, pollution and traffic reduction and the resultant health and wellbeing effects, and so on, isn't a socialist, they're cosplaying some grim stereotype.

I expect that's pretty obvious, though.

If Momentum, Spiked, Simon Danczuk, the Tories, and George fucking Galloway have taught us anything, it's that any old bollocks can be dressed up and sold as "what the real working class want". And anything a bit complicated as metropolitan liberal pipe dreams.

I've been reading some of the British Election Study's data on the 2017 election recently. As you might expect, it goes into the Brexit referendum as part of the context, and the figures seem to play out in a way that suggests that age was the deciding factor (with a secondary focus on education), as opposed to class.

But, as you say, that doesn't suit the narrative.
