I don't know. But I once actually went inside a council house and soon became overpowered by the smell of sprouts.

There is an element of snobbery in every individual and in every aspect of life. Discuss.
I do not feel that there is snobbery very much, just a sense of superiority over those less forntunate than yourself. Snobbery is exercised by those who were born into a fortunate position and so seem to lord it over everyone.

Not entirely. Snobbery seems to appear amongst some peope who strive to be the centre of attention, and in trying to remain so attempt to have others perceive them to be superior.

teenage girls, for example, can follow the route of self beautification to make themselves feel more superior, as they feel they are more noticeable and therefore better than other girls who do not.

yeah, thats one description of what I'm saying. Also a group of women in say a parents committee for a school. There always seems to be one who tries to be the centre of attention and when the attention is focused on them, they appear rather snobbish. Same with men in the same situation, though stereotypically women

Although the word snob is usually misused to describe those who are well spoken and well off, some of the worst offenders can be the lower class.

From my experience theres a greater contempt/distrust/general dislike for the middle class from the working class than vice versa.

Perhaps that's just because the working class is bigger.
