Newsletter editorial, Jan '12: Upstairs, downstairs

Postby Dave » Tue 31 Jan 2012 09:20 GMT

In this month's newsletter editorial we looked at household service. Although it's declined as an economic and social institution in the UK, it still persists in other parts of the world - especially in developing countries - and many expats will have experience of household help.

Do you find it a boon or an occasional curse to have domestic staff? Or is the whole idea of servants altogether too feudal for your liking? We'd love to hear your thoughts!
