In Edinburgh, there's a sort of posh part.


Hi guys,

I'm watching 100% Hotter. Jordan says he's got mixed reactions from other people. He says "In Edinburgh, there's a sort of posh part. I like going out in the posh part.
You get some people, like, "Oh, why are you wearing that?" But I like going out like this, 'cause then you can sort of feel like, "Who cares?".

I'd like to know what a "posh part" is. Is it a part of the town where posh people hang out?

    The posh part of the city is where the posher people live, and the property prices are generally higher. If there are shops, they will be more high-end shops rather than discount shops like Poundstretcher.

    In Edinburgh, we might be thinking about Bruntsfield or Morningside with its leafy neighbourhoods.

    It is more to do with wealth than whether the people are posh (usually something of a pejorative term when used for people). The posh part of town is the smart, wealthy area.
