    I am quite poor and I make around 20K a year.
    I been to university but came out even poorer! Still going to continue studying too
    I'm very open-minded and multiculturalism is part of my life, people are all different with interesting backgrounds.
    Music, well I listen to anything that sounds good to be honest. Sometimes I would go on youtube and just explore. I might even play Japanese song or Indian. You never know, I don't limit myself to one thing
    Politics, I would say am quite liberal but also proud British too.
    I don't think I belong to any class lol

    Class is a mix of culture, education and money.

    However the crude way it is measured is money.

    Nope, class is based on income, education, culture, where you live and a number of factors

    Class is not solely financial.

    I think the class system is breaking down now, it's difficult to tell for most people.

    Class is a relic of an outdated system. The country has developed beyond an archaic class system, and will entirely transcend it within the next sixty years.

    Actually the way the economy is going class divides are going to be more pronounced in future, with home ownership being one of the key markers that distinguishes the middle & upper classes from the working class.

    There is a U.K. Class Calulator

    I'm not vouching for its reliability, just saying it's there.


    I do think the idea that class is defined by income is more prevalent in the states than it is in the U.K.

    Yeah but it's odd in a way because a lot of my self proclaimed working class peers have home owning parents despite being 'low income', where was my more average income parents aren't home owners.

    A lot of them make little money but own homes because it was much cheaper in the past.

    My parents have their own homes and my dad has business and properties but the thing is none of those are actually mine and I have never ask money to my parents maybe at age 16 I used to.

    I struggle like anyone else and I don't like borrowing money I would rather stay hungry and eat bread and drink water if I don't have enough money to budget.
