Ok, a little bit of fun! Apparantly we no longer have a 3 class system, we have a 7 class system!!

 

To keep this anonymous I have made it a poll.

 

Have a go. I wasn't surprised at mine.

I'll give you a hint Buddsy

I'm technical middle class, but I live in Australia so what does that mean?

I put in my old English salary and surrounds and came up as Technical Middle Class.  I then retried with my Australian salary and surrounds and got promoted to Bib's level.

It says I'm a New Affluent Worker. Hmmm. I might have been, were I 25 and working.....being 67 and retired I reckon that's balderdash. The thing takes no notice of age or status...I get marked down for not owning some expensive pile of bricks. I used to, but sold it to fund the continuing madness....

New affluent worker.....

Affluent!

Does that mean I should be able to afford my mortgage payments?

Just done it again and this time it's saying Established Middle Class.....

I most definitely should be able to afford my mortgage now! It lies!

Interestingly it doesn't ask what your mortgage debt is just market value of property. Think that's where it all falls down for me!

Cleese: (In bowler hat, black jacket and pinstriped trousers) I look down on him (Indicates Barker) because I am upper-class. 

Barker: (Pork-pie hat and raincoat) I look up to him (Cleese) because he is upper-class; but I look down on him (Corbett) because he is lower-class. I am middle-class 

Corbett: (Cloth cap and muffler) I know my place. I look up to them both. But I don't look up to him (Barker) as much as I look up to him (Cleese), because he has got innate breeding. 

Cleese: I have got innate breeding, but I have not got any money. So sometimes I look up (bends knees, does so) to him (Barker). 

Barker: I still look up to him (Cleese) because although I have money, I am vulgar. But I am not as vulgar as him (Corbett) so I still look down on him (Corbett). 

Corbett: I know my place. I look up to them both; but while I am poor, I am honest, industrious and trustworthy. Had I the inclination, I could look down on them. But I don't. 

Barker: We all know our place, but what do we get out of it? 

Cleese: I get a feeling of superiority over them. 

Barker: I get a feeling of inferiority from him, (Cleese), but a feeling of superiority over him (Corbett). 

Corbett: I get a pain in the back of my neck.

Class went out the window over 100 years ago, when the merchants built themselves estates; and those whose families were given estates after the Norman conquest were quitting them as they could not afford to maintain the piles.

I work, so working class, there is a massive "Jeremy Kyle" class who do not work and a tiny elite class who watch daytime tv using their own money rather than taxpayer money.

 

It could be that the whole system is "on its head", and we now pay our feudal obligation (taxes) so that the workshy can parade around their "Manor"

I managed to move up from technical middle class to established simply by clicking that i knew a few more people. Didnt matter what they did just needed to know a few more. Note to self, must get out of garage a bit more!!

I've played with it quite a bit (the questionnaire) and I can't get Precariat at all. Still it is a bit of fun.

 

Loving some of the comments, made me chuckle Chris and Dan.
