Geoffrey Evans and Jonathan Mellon's report finds that most British people regard themselves as working class

Geoffrey Evans and Jonathan Mellon (Nuffield College) have published a report for Britain’s largest independent social research agency, NatCen.

One of the many findings in this study of British social attitudes is that 60% of the country identifes as being working class - the same number as in 1983.  This number includes many who work in jobs that are usually considered to be indicators of being middle class.
