Stay classy

Australia is talking about class. (Well, the nation's broadcaster is.)

A couple of years ago I wrote 'Instructive lesson on class', for the Sydney Morning Herald. My point was simple: to remind readers that we are by no means a 'classless' country.

Prompted by new English research dividing the United Kingdom into seven classes, I was recently contacted by the ABC to talk more about class in Australia.

Yesterday I spoke to the typically sharp and effervescent Libbi Gorr on ABC radio Melbourne.

Today I was on Triple J's 'Hack' program, talking to Alex Mann.
