I don't blame Tesco for banning customers in night attire, just as I don't blame primary heads who have had to send letters home asking that mothers leaving and collecting their offspring not do so pyjama-clad. I blame those who are now claiming that this practice, completely unheard of 15 years ago, is somehow part of "working-class culture". What, not getting dressed? Since when? The very opposite used to be the case. But then, in those days, there really was a working-class culture. Since, in those days, there really was work.
