What is middle class?

You can tell a middle-class person by how they speak mostly. I know straight off that a person who responds to something by saying 'a' is lower- or working class.

I don't believe it!

That people are still working full-time, or need to be, to be able to live comfortably.

We were meant to rely on robots by now, and be able to concentrate on enjoying our interests and hobbies.

The question I want to ask is: what is Ed going to do with his election pledges Stone?

Is his garden big enough for it?

Yeah. It seems more of the same and then some.

Isn't the 'austerity plan' only half way through their cuts?

Not a good time to be old, ill, young or poor!

I think that a government does have a major role in promoting people's health.

Adequate financing of the NHS, for a start! Mental health as well as physical.

There could be more sports and leisure centres and facilities that actually cater for everyone regardless of wealth. That would need probably state backing.

Good government is necessary to ensure people's needs are met, and no-one is living below the poverty line.

Regardless of the political party, we have a long way to go!

There is a major difference between Labour and Conservative.

Conservatives say that people's money is 'their own', and should not have to pay so much tax. Labour say that they need the money from people's taxes to spend on their behalf.

I think that a good government would spend money more wisely than individuals. Collective spending versus individual spending on yourself. But the more rich you are, the more likely you are to want to spend just on yourself.

Socialism does work, up to a certain amount. We are social creatures, therefore need to cooperate and help each other.

Well done. John. I knew you were going to do it, and in a fair time as well. You were pretty determined to raise funds for the charity that helped your son. And that is quite inspiring.

So are you going to keep running? How are the knees? Maybe choose another challenge so that it keeps people interested?
