Class is inversely proportional to the amount you care about it.

If you are upper class you are loaded, that's about it.................

I think middle tends to be if your household earning potential puts you in the higher tax bracket, and things like having degrees etc.

Maybe wrong!




Ohh I will then he can get me a free ticket up north for next month:w00t: Ta LLM.

I don't think you automatically enter into the upper classes by getting rich and acting upper class.

In a developed capitalist society there are only two classes. The capitalist and the Proletarian class.
The capitalist (the rich, owners of vast amounts of wealth and land), who are also called the bourgeoisie, are the owners of the means of social production and employers of wage labour.
The proletariat (working class) are said to be "the class of modern wage-labourers who, having no means of production of their own, are reduced to selling their labour-power in order to live.
The construct of a "middle class" is purely a means by which the capitalist manages wage labour. They promote certain members of the proletariat into management positions. They then believe they have a vested interest in capital making more profits so therefore become useful at keeping wage labor working at it's maximum efficiency. Consequently when trouble occurs in the system it is these promoted proletarians that are often hit first and hardest.

Yea I reckon if you marry royalty you count as upper class, mind you do real upper class people marry outside their class?

Exactly. Upper class is Eton/Harrow and then the better colleges at Oxbridge (i.e. those that don't take too many undergrads from outside the public schools).

If your parents were working class then, no matter how much money you have, you won't be regarded as upper class by the upper classes.

But you do get the complimentary 'chip' to be worn on either shoulder and shown off at any opportune (or inopportune) moment.

yes they do. their parents aren't happy about it though. getting into the right circles is the hardest part. i've been to some amazing places/parties but then more often i end up going to house parties in dumps! :lol:

I'm sorry, but this made me laugh. I presume you went to the 25th best one then? Because if you had gone to the 20th best, then you would have said "i went to one of the best 20 universities ..." and so on. Lol.
