Interesting Fact - Class in the UK

According to a survey conducted by, 7 out of 10 Brits say they are middle-class, with a strong belief that middle-class people are more likely to be successful.

(Only 53% think their parents were white-collar workers, and 6 out of 10 say their grandparents were working class.

Fewer than a third of those who called themselves middle class were in a profession — such as lawyer or doctor, even though 3/4 of people believe being a professional is the top reason for being middle-class.

The poll also showed that less than a 1/3of us believe our parents’ class or family wealth determines our status, which is just as well in my case, I'd have to go back down t' mine.)
