Digital Divide

It seems anything that refreshes and deepens class-division is as welcome as a drink in a desert.

Estate Agents have started offering a chav locator apparently. A 'here be draggones' for housebuyers everywhere. The way it effects the housing market is creating a series of self-fulfilling prophecies. I expect it draws on ONS statistics that are paid for by the taxpayer?

And Nottingham has been on the receiving end of the journalistic equivalent of this recently.

Who's next I wonder?

(Anyone planning to single out Liverpool had better get their apologies ready in advance....)
