Kate is related to them, distant cousin. lol
So has every American president been, including the current one.

I am an emergent service worker by British standards or perhaps that can be translated into washed up rock god wannabe.  Yeah, sold my soul for rock and roll and now paying the price. :innocent:

There's no evidence of that, I'm afraid.

(While I was checking that though, I discovered that Kate's great-grandfather Charlie Goldsmith, served in the same regiment (Royal Fusiliers) as my grandfather during WWI. Since my forebear was a Lieutenant, and Charlie described as a 'mechanic' and therefore most likely serving in the ranks, it amuses me to think that perhaps gramps might have ordered the ancestor of a Queen of England to get a haircut!)


Oh my bad then, thought there was.

Haha, yeah that would be funny.

I did the survey but don't want to post the result, only because I don't want to be stereotyped. I don't care what class people come from, so long as you are good folk :P

this report only gives out what the people who created it want to know. It doesn't ask if you own a brand new £22000 car, or go to footy matches, or get a pension.or drink beer hee hee.

I'm the lowest of the pile according to this,
I tend to answer questions like this negatively like friend careers...and interests I see them as friends so career isnt a prerequisit or issue,
I actually know Judges, Lawyers, Doctors and Cleaners so I fail to see how they determine class...so you know the Queen and like blue collar fraud...you must be in the elite section.
Its kind of ridiculous how we are still pigeon holed into class and then all opinions made about you based around it. its the very essence of inequality when the circumstances of birth determined your social standing. its actually on a par with racism imo

I once bumped into Robbie Coltraine and Donald Dewar (former First Minister of Scotland) in my local shopping centre and asked them why the EEC wasn't handing out free bottles of wine instead of lumps of cheese and was nearly arrested!  lol  Them was the days.

  I once shook hands with Gorbachev,when he was Pres of Russia,and asked him why the Russians hadnt gone to the Moon,he replied "Because we have greater things in mind".  ?. thats always puzzled me.

Nothing sinister. Mars was always more important than Moon, and then another solar system. There's been a pause, but what Tsiolkovsky started will continue.....

they're all related to each other in some remote way or other. Like all Presidents are distantly related.

regarding this Class Calculator thing, I see it assesses people purely on the basis of how much Money they have, as with everything in modern society, and so I refuse to participitate.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Was rather bored earlier, so was playing around on it, and the biggest factor determining your 'class' appears to be whether you own your own house and it's value. I.e., I spent far too long answering it in different combinations, and if you changed nothing other than who you socialise with or what activities you do, it changed less. Also changed less based on income.
