More of a Prosecco Girl Myself

For those denigrating me as a "champagne socialist", I have to say I'm more of a prosecco girl, myself. I was born in a working-class family who have for generations been active in political protest. I was nine years old when I was first taken to a demonstration by my mother, who at the time was working as a housing officer for Cardiff council.
