e.g., Behave like a yob, Alec, and you can be sure Santa will check his list twice. | "Cleese also spoke about the shift in British attitudes away from a “middle-class culture” and the emergence of a 'yob culture.'    "He said: 'There were disadvantages to the old culture, it was a bit stuffy and it was more sexist and more racist. But it was an educated and middle-class culture. Now it’s a yob culture. The values are so strange.'"
