This is a question Posh

My dad's family are posh - there's at least one knight and an ex-lord mayor of london. My mum's family come from Staines.

How posh are you? Who's the poshest person you've met? Be proud and tell us your poshest moments.

Hughes PhD OBE, set up and commanded the field hospital for the Allies at D-Day, and was awarded the George Cross and the Conspicuous Gallantry award, and afterards basically invented neuroscience. One of his books, Clinical Electroencephalography, and many of his papers are still used as core-texts by students around the world, and remain bibles to that exact science. His son and my uncle, Dr. S. H. C. Hughes, developed a method of producing CT-scanning devices more cheaply and making them available to the rest of the world.

We are also direct descendants of Daniel Defoe, the author of Robinson Crusoe.

We are upper-middle class and public-school educated, so we are not afflicted with accents and are therefore “posh” to the rest of you useless plebs. We also make your anti-work way of life financially possible because the government inexplicably hates us. Damn socialists. What-ho.
