There is a famous 1966 comedy sketch from The Frost Report that you’ve no doubt seen.
The one where Ronnie Corbett (4ft 11in), Ronnie Barker (5ft 8in) and John Cleese (6ft 5in) highlight the rising levels of superiority (symbolised by increasing height) between the lower, middle and upper classes in Britain.
If the sketch was re-made today only two comedians would be needed: Ricky Gervais’s mates Warwick Davis (3ft 6in) and Stephen Merchant (6ft 7in).
Because the way wealth is being polarised in this country there will soon be only two classes of people: the Haves and the Have Nots.
Or rather, the “I have so much money I spend all my time worrying what to do with it” and the rest.
And, as between Merchant and Davis, the gap between the two groups is phenomenal.
