    Most indigenous working class culture is, to be frank, crap. Nobody wants greasy spoon cafes, darts, betting, snooker or jellied eels. Nobody wants to go back to the days of not being able to get a coffee after 4pm.

    Well not all working class people are the same. I assume this is true of all middle class people. I'm from an underclass background, beneath working class. I've never smoked in my life, I don't drink heavily. I don't have loads of children (I don't even have one) and I've never been on Jeremy Kyle. Also I despise football.

    Maybe you could argue that I've rejected my under/working class culture to some extent, but I don't know that you can outright reject something you never identified with in the first place. My social class hasn't correlated with any form of culture.
