    I love how 80 people think they're royalty
    They probably think owning a used car makes them royalty, or their parents owning a garden shed.

    LOL or maybe they just think being called a proper princess or a royal pain is enough.

    I'm not really sure what to answer on this question, I have a very interesting situation... My mother is definitely working class (maybe even underclass) whilst my fathar and his side of the family would count to upper middle or upper (my parents don't live together)... But this is brilliant, I experience both sides of the society!

    That's an interesting article. It's by Michael Wood, he's a lovely, clever man and he has a new series on the development of Britain on the BBC on Friday evenings running at the moment, really worth watching.

    It is pride. Much like saying you are 'proud to be British'. You don't admire the fact that your British do you?
    Of course I do, I was just proving a point to someone, and formed a scenario.

    my parents would be upper middle or upper, but like me hate the idea of classes.

    Would rather be working class and happy, over some money hungry upper class.

    If i was to have my own class system it would be how much each person would contribute to society

    People like doctors, mechanics, posties, cleaners and such would all be together on top
    And then people only care about money and putting themselves higher than overs would be on bottom
    bit contradicting :')
    If you put them all together "on top", who would be lower down so that there would be a "top"?

    Middle class parentage, but a disastrous education and work life is pushing me rapidly towards the underclass.

    Im working class.

    My mother is also working class but likes to think shes middle class
    LOL, how? Why does she think shes middle class? :rolleyes:

    My parents and I, we are all "working class at heart". We went to uni and they have several degrees and professional qualifications.

    I don't mind looking "cheap". Would only shop when it is on sale; spend ages negotiating phone contract to make them put a discount on it. Quite a few people at uni who are from the "underclass" actually spend more than me. Quite a few people who their parents are on benefit would spend over 50quid a month on phone, getting expansive haircut from RUSH, buying pretty clothes and eating out a lot.

    What a surprise - most people are middle-class. The people who said they are royalty probably thought it would be funny (God knows why) to click that option. Plus upper/lower/whatever - the wealthy side of things is all middle-class unless you're a banker or the son or daughter of one, when it's obviously upper. So why are so many university students pretend socialists? They later go on to get very well-paid jobs in sales or something, usually.

    I have genuine sympathy for the genuine poor, because in this day and age most people are out for themselves, rather than helping the downtrodden. There's no real Labour Party anymore to give opportunities to people, especially in the public sector. And nowadays, people tend to vote for the politician who will help them as individuals the most, rather than the ones who will create a better society-at-large. Politicians just don't give us the opportunity to do anything else, these days. It's all self-interest, since Blair.

    I am middle-class, and not ashamed of it. But I am the first and only person in all of my proud British lineage to have been through university - more than I can say for most of my old uni chums who claimed to be working-class. Good luck to everyone studying hard at uni at the moment - you can do it, even if you have to take loads more exams after graduation just to get anything that vaguely resembles a graduate job and salary.

    Upper-middle, not upper. Cash can't make you upper class..

    I know one or two and they are kind of upper - having all that money growing up, going to the top schools and mixing only with the upper sort can kind of make you become a little upper. Or at least, the upper part of upper-middle.

    And being upper-class does not automatically imply having a title. Richard Branson doesn't have a title (not a hereditary one, anyway) - would you say he is middle-class? Can we please get past this silly belief that the owning class only consists of titled people!

    Yes, I would. I would say Richard Branson is Upper Middle. It is not a silly belief, it is quite accepted.

    What class I am has always confused me. I come from a very working class background; for example, my Grandmother comes from a single parent family from the slums of 'Little Ireland' in Edinburgh. However now, due to the hard work of my dad, I live in a detached house in the Oxfordshire countryside. What class am I? I still consider myself working class; due to my family and background.
