Class in Britain

Just thought I would share what I believe is just about the best popular media article on the effect of Class in contemporary British society that I have ever read; Jenni Russell in The Times today.

In particular because of one line that sums up a very persuasive argument about why neither the Tories or Labour adequately confront the issue:
Labour doesn’t want to look too closely at behaviour and character. The Tories, on the other hand, don’t want to confront the realities of structural privilege.

I think it neatly gets at why neither party's approach has been successful for slowing the growth of social divisions in Britain.
