37. Maternal authenticity? She comes across as an inadequate parent, and far from working class
Edited on Wed Apr-21-10 02:20 PM by LeftishBrit
Rich thicko. Someone once said that the Conservative Party is 'the cream of Britain because it is rich, thick and full of clots'! She would fit in well, except that she would be too stupid and nutty even for most Tories. She's uneducated out of choice and perhaps inability, rather than lack of opportunity - and she seems to have absolutely no ability to *think*!

Frankly, I think it's pretty insulting to working class people to equate them with someone like her.
