    The Middle Class Awards 2012

    We all remember 2012 as a year of big events (London 2012, The Diamond Jubilee need we say more?), big societal changes (President Obama’s re-election), natural disasters (Hurricane Sandy) and media catastrophes (The BBC). But the other publications have covered the big stuff in style, and here at the MCH, as you know, we like to zoom in on the tiny yet significant details of everyday life. The brands, the names, the habits and hairstyles that somehow reflect, or influence, our cultural mood, or at least our dinner party conversations; so for the next few days we’ll be celebrating our middle class moments of 2012. 

    From the ‘Middle Class Matter to feel Indignant about in 2012’, to the Award for the ‘Lingustic Monstrosity of the Year’, we’ll be bringing you the Nice, Interesting and Sort of Symbolic Things of the Year – MC Style. We hope you enjoy them and wish you a very Happy New Year.
