Middle class and no car? You're having me on!
- I've just been glancing at a "life style" survey in the Birmingham Post (win
Christmas vouchers worth £250 etc). I got to question 2 or 3 which was on
cars and there was no room in the forced choice question to indicate that
one did not have a car. OK I do still have one and am still going through
detox but I thought that the question was indicative of a mentality that
assumes that when querying a middle class sample you cannot imagine
including a category for people without cars. I realise incidentally that
this would also leave the current Lord mayor of Birmingham and her consort
in a quandary!
