    why should our society have basic rights and responsibilities, question it every time you have an answer. There is no reason
    Well that's the way humans have structured themseleves. It's what makes us different from others. We all accept that we have to live togather and rely on each other.

    Would you have rather opted out lol .

    well if you would be a brave but foolish person not to believe in the right to habeas corpus, fair trial, right to freedom of speech ect in our society. unless you want to suddenly go to prison because someone doesnt like you.

    Well I think it is a bit ridiculous really. Everyone can have their own oppinions. I swear this Tory supporting thing is becoming like a club which instantly gives its members the impression that they are sophisticated and intelligent. But this isn't the case.
    how would you know?

    Well the way I see it the only reason why the Conservative party (and now Labour at times) can get away with some of their ridiculous policies is because they focus their efforts on middle class voters who (mostly) don't understand or care about discrimination or opportunities for the less fortunate.
    the working class still hold a large key to an election. the fact that they automatically herd vote left wing, leaves the middle classes as the swing vote. it is precisely because they listen and are interested in policy that politics is aimed at them..

    i love the way middle class and working class is such a massive divide for you.

    The number of children living in poverty has fallen by half a million since 1997; a reversal in the trend of annually increasing child poverty which started under the Tories in the 80s causing Britain to have one of the highest child poverty rates in the western world!
    child poverty is not the issue.

    Do you believe that we can change social classes (as in the model where Social Class 1 are professionals, and Social Class 5 are unemployed...) or do you think that once we are all "born" into a class, we must stick to it?

    May be a generalisation, but aren't the conservative party awful! Not that the Labour party are much better. They're so smarmy, particularly Nigel Evans, who looks like a hamster.

    it is predominantly the latter but the former may change the circumstance slightly. the point is, the big divide between the two classes is not as wide or hostile as ppl make out.

    Hence the creation of "upper working class" and "lower middle class". This blurs the boundaries somewhat.

    If you're born into a working class family, they win the lottery and send you to a public school. You then become a successful barrister and live in a nice luxury penthouse in mayfair, are well spoken and successful in every sense. You can still be considered working class as in your parents are working class, but you are in Social Class 1. It depends on whether you believe in the aristocratic class division, or the more modern divisions of society.

    But it is an issue of huge importance and a very good indicator of where the country is going and how it is progressing.

    If by definition social class is based on job type, then most people would stick to it for life as they rarely deviate from that type of work. An individual may, however, change considerably in their finanicial situation throughout life such as childhood, parenthood, retired etc...
