Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
I think that shows that class is meaningless in the UK at least in the way it is used. Apart from the very rich, the Rees Moggs of the world, we are almost all pretty much the same. So I am social class E now, having moved from probably AB before I retired. Despite very little drop in my disposable income. What is not true though is that making this about educational achievement is meaningless. Degree level education was only available to a minority in my day, so in this sense there will be a correlation with age. But don't look at that, look at O levels and GCSEs, which were/are available to all. Those with 5 or more O levels, or GCSEs grade A-C, are much more likely to have voted remain.
