As the title says.
I consider myself a middle class fallen into the working class. Parents moved in opposite class directions but ended up solid middle class. Most of my family stayed middle class. I went to a red brick uni but got out and now work with my hands. I am the black sheep.
Interesting vid on English class system
Maybe we need a poll
Edit by spunko: I have added a poll, definitions here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_class_in_the_United_Kingdom
By One percent
A failed Algerian asylum seeker who used five fake identities to fraudulently claim £370,000 in benefits has been jailed for five years.
Saif Boudemagh, 41, used a forged French identity card to illegally enter the UK in March, 2000 but his asylum appeal failed.
Boudemagh continued to appeal and eventually obtained residency in 2004, two years after marrying UK citizen Paula Boudemagh.
The article continues with a catalog of bogus claims and his brother was also doing similar.

My elderly mother has, again, given out bank card details to an Indian call centre who have taken £99 from her account for some non-existent 'call blocking' service.
She's not gaga but finds it hard to say no to these people 'they just talked me into it' etc. She's been like this for years, the first time it happened was ten years ago so I don't think it's dementia or anything like that. No matter how many times I warn her about it, she still does it. The only way I knew was because I check her accounts weekly online for just this sort of thing.
We've stopped the card but my questions for the dosbodders is, once a scammer has your card details, security number etc can they just empty your bank account? If so why didn't they take all the money in the account, not just £99? What is the actual process/equipment required for companies or individuals to take money (POS payment) from a bank account?
