Most British people identify as working class

Although politicians tell us we’re all middle class now, most British people still prefer to call themselves working class. Surveys by pollsters Ipsos MORI shows that over half of all British people consider themselves to be working class. The major two reasons they give are similar to those offered by the people whose stories are showcased on this site – that they have to work for a living and that they feel themselves to be ‘ordinary’.

For more details see the latest Ipsos MORI survey here.
