Guardian Online Travel Section Radically Underestimates Readers' Hatred Of Skins, Nepotism, Skinny Jeans, Self.
They seem to have closed the comments section now.
UPDATE: the best comment, as far as I can see, is from 'oniongravy':
"The real issue here, as others have pointed out, is with the travel eds. I don't think it honestly occurs to you - and when I say 'you', I mean London based journos on the nationals - just how often, how incessantly and how forcefully we are fed the stories of the lives of a small subsection of London society, how we can't open a paper or magazine without hearing their bleating, self-important voices complaining about their nannies, discussing whether it's OK to wear a mini skirt round the Portobello Road if you're over 40, and yes, just what their kids did on their gap years. It's so dispiriting and depressing to find that there is LESS of a cross section of a society represented in the acres of newsprint that there were 30 years ago. Like university education, the clock is turning back from the brave years of working class kids taking a step up. Unis are more middle class than ever and so are newspapers."
