Middle classes 'very stretched' says Mary Ann Sieghart

Journalist Mary Ann Sieghart said middle class people are feeling "very very stretched" as prices are rising faster than inflation and life is "very difficult for them".

Former MP George Galloway explained he considered himself working class - and it had nothing to do with money, as he earns far more than the supposed middle-class earnings of £20,000 a year.

They spoke after a film looking at life for middle class people was aired.
