The Government has, this morning, announced that it is to introduce a new social league to define social class and to let the various classes know their place. The old three-tier system is out with the introduction of a new seven-tier structure.
"From "The Premiership" at the top, the system will reinforce the one nationality status of a modern Britain" proclaimed a beaming Prime Minister, his head and upper body reflected in the wide, polished surface of the antique oak desk, dominating his office in No.10. "As your Prime Minister, and as the name implies, it is only natural that I should take the lead of The Premiership and this is part of what I am announcing today. However, as an incentive to the rest of society, I'm also announcing that all the lower divisions will be open to sponsorship from the private sector - and we've already made a start with one - and I shall be announcing more big name sponsors later today."
Asked how he felt about being a member of the 7th Division "Blue Square Precariat", Alf Mottershead, a former wheel tapper, now retired, from Darlington said "It's great in't it. I've never been recognised as a blue anything before so this is great, yeh, it's great. You never know, if me grandsons live long enough they could get promotion t't Ryman Northern Class. Long live t'Tories, yeah. Heh heh! Whats a Preariat?
