Sy het verduidelik: ‘The new snobbery in my book is eco snobbery. So people who are saving the environment, none of them drink milk no more, they drink oat milk, pea milk, and of course they all make kimchi, that smelly cabbage stuff.
‘Eco snobbery is the way to go, they are out eco-ing you,’ the broadcaster added.

The society bible said open marriages and BYOB (bring your own booze) parties shouldn’t raise eyebrows either, but fake-flower decor, prosecco and self-help books are still de trop.
