Oh sorry, I'm working class so I need to doff my cap and bow down to these billionaire born-to-rule class war landlords to reflect these 'traditional' working class values I keep getting told about.

If the Queen is the beating heart of 'our' nation, does that make Andrew the arse?

A quick glance at this Twitter account shows BBC Social isn't News. It's a platform for different voices, identities and backgrounds. I'm glad this national broadcaster uses it's space to reflect diversity in the UK.

Barring some examples, the vast majority of band's best albums are their early work. So Spotify should list oldest-to-newest so I don't have to scroll down for ages to find the best albums.

Eugenics: The fascist ideology you can 'breed' out disability and that one race is superior to another. 'Woke': A term used to divisively dismiss progressive ideas. Anonymous Tory MP in the Guardian: "These are the same thing."

This idea that Labour must stand up for a 'traditional' working class suggests LGBTQ+ people are some sort of recent development, or only hetcis people are w/c. It's erasing the LGBTQ+ community from both working class history and contemporary social issues.

The working class of the UK also include LGBTQ+ people. Why this constant broad brushstroke to paint the working class are all heterosexual and cisgender?

Working class people can be LBGTQ+. Trans rights are a priority for working class Trans people and their families. Why assume Labour's "working class grassroots" doesn't include Trans people?
