Posh, Poor and Middleclass Brits - UK

Britain has certainly become more multi-cultural and diverse, but does its traditional class system still stand? It seems the divide between the rich and the poor is growing ever-more prominent.

Whilst well-off Richard Bailey's hobby is sailing gondolas, Adam Bloor is a young homeless man simply trying to build a life for himself. "When you're homeless everybody looks down on you" he shrugs. As the divide between Upper Middle Class and Lower Middle Class, "which borders on being poor", becomes more defined, the gap between rich and poor only seems to be getting bigger.
