JACOB Rothschild, the 4th Baron Rothschild, tells a TV interviewer that despite his family's hereditary title and long standing in British society, he is not an aristocrat. "Why? Because we haven't been here long enough ... We're a nouveau riche family, you know ... We may have become part of the British Establishment to a certain extent but that's a rather different thing." Sho nuff. Alluding to the difference between the aristocracy and the Establishment in the course of a self-effacing remark, mind you, is a pretty good sign that you're a member of one or the other.
