Interesting Fact - The Class System

Varndean College, a sixth-form college in Brighton, offered sociology students a trip to watch a football match at Millwall Football Club.

(Sounds fine so far, but the field trip was for them to "observe working-class culture".
A poster for the trip promised participants would be able to see “gender performance” in action, including types such as “the new lad” on show, and the chance to observe “issues around sexuality, race and ethnicity,” “women challenging gender norms” and to “even talk to football fans”.  Wow!

So, if anyone tells you the class system in the UK is dead, redirect them here.)
