IN AN INTERVIEW with Vincent Browne on Wednesday evening, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar was asked if he represented the middle class in Ireland, and claimed that they were in a large majority.

He said: “Over 70% of people describe themselves as middle class.”

Browne shot back: “Where did you come across that?”

Varadkar said: “It’s a standard statistic, if you ask people.”

So where did this figure come from? A US survey in 2015 showed that 70% of Americans do indeed consider themselves as middle class, but is Ireland the same?

Today, we’re asking you: Do you consider yourself middle class?
