Britain's middle classes may no longer be able to provide sustenance for lazy politicians, with sources of generalisations running dangerously low.
Soon, Labour peers, columnists and police chiefs alike may struggle to find a safe outlet for their impotent rage.
Now anger is being focused on those who squandered all the meatiest generalisations when supplies were plentiful. In one article alone, Labour MP Eric Joyce used up a whole arsenal of middle class labels, by calling them drunks, hypocrites, liars, con artists and paedofiles. Some critics complain he wasted these generalisations by using them all at once. Joyce, however, may have been on a deadline, because shortly afterwards he had an appointment with Her Majesty's Police force, after crashing his car while under the influence of drink.
Janet Street Porter called for the rationing of lazy attacks on the middle class, calling for a sustainable supply of easy generalisations.
