The Metropolitan Elite

I am a Conservative Activist, living in Hackney. I am not your stereo typical Conservative and I am definitely not part of metropolitan elite. I teach dysfunctional kids drama, but I love it. I have a northern accent and I am not, as I recently discovered as well informed about politics as perhaps I should be. On Friday night I appeared on Vox Politix which is a programme aired from 18 Doughty Street, the show was hosted by Andre Walker. Sat either side of me in a studio that resembled the Richard and Judy show, were two very eloquently spoken, well informed, articulate, sophisticated and pushy women. By the end of the evening I was absolutely exhausted I just could not compete with them intellectually and I felt as though I was drowning in a sea of sophisticated language and terminology. I realise that from now on I need to read a lot more Broadsheets. The tabloids are for the chop! It's the Daily Telegraph from now on! The reality is I'll never be a classy Tory bird I mean I shop at Prime Mark for Gods sake.

Well, you wouldn't have been invited if they didn't think you had something to say and an interesting way of saying it. (I missed it myself.) Keep bloging. See you in Primark! x

I passed Prime Mark on the way to the internet Cafe. I decided not to go in, it was a difficult choice to make.
