Is Culture Replacing Class At The Heart Of British Society?

Television broadcaster Melvyn Bragg: “Class has not slunk away from these islands. It never will. Too many people have an investment in it. But … I would argue that we are now a nation of cultures rather than a nation of classes. If we look at the passion with which people describe what they do in their leisure time, you have a truer picture of our society today.”
