Unless you're one of those who pick recyclable cardboard and plastic from my rubbish bin--and I take my hat off to them--I'm willing to bet (a small amount... according to my means) you're middle class like the rest of El Reg commentards. Which suggests you're somewhat naive when your reading steers you to see the members of the modern pseudo-nobility as one of 'us'.
And 'white' isn't a race. Englishmen are saxon mongrels--the lot of us (I could equally call myself a Nordic mongrel).
