Why do British people seem to hate their middle class? -

This is something I've been wondering for a bit and felt this would be as good as any place to ask my brothers from the island of Mutton.

I've noticed in a lot of British political videos, and comment sections especially, that a lot of groups hold the middle class in contempt, often calling them rich, privileged wankers and worse. This is completely foreign to me as an American, where we idolize being middle class to a fault.

Is there a cultural divide, or am I watching videos that are inherently made and watched by people who are biased against them?

The middle class has to be destroyed everywhere. They are the ladder between lowerclass and upperclass and if you destroy it, the children of the upperclass are ensured to have a better position in the world in the future.

Countries that are farther ahead in this propaganda like the UK will have more people echo-ing this propaganda.

And yes, the english have a long tradition of huge cultural divide between upper and lowerclass.

The thing is i've seen a lot of lowerclass people hate the middleclass. I understand the landed nobility hating them, but why do the poor not like them either?

Lowerclass always think that middleclass are tossers, though not always quite to that degree. Landed nobility as you call it, capitalizes on it by making sure there is sufficient propaganda/leaders to focus lowerclass on the middleclass, so that they'll pull them back down, instead of uniting against the upperclass. Falling for the divide and conquer basicly.

Jealousy and learned dependancy. The middle class are rayciss wypipo and uncle toms, but celebrity/rich niggaz still "act black" when theyr're putting the mask on for their social inferiors so they're "real" and "relatable". Back to the lower classes, they don't have to better themselves or anything when they're on section 8 and they go out and swipe dat EBT

Because they're globalist champaign socialists who hate their own nation. Underclass/Working class and Upper class tend to be quite proud of their country and get on in this regard.

In the lowerclasses it manifests as football culture, lad culture, and disdain for foreigners. (eg CAM ON 'INGERLUND! don't like em 'simple as) in the upper classes, it's the idyllic British view of the rolling green hills, a man in tweed smoking a pipe and a nostalgia for the days of colonialism when we were top dog.

The Middle classes are cultureless self-hating perennial losers

Hasn't the British elite always hated their own native lower classes?

I mean, British cuisine is hardly as horrifying as some make it to be. Rough-hewn in comparison to France, perhaps, but not inedible (especially compared to some other countries on its latitude).

It's not the middle class, it's that the middle class are inevitably the spearhead of the woke PC bollocks that infests everywhere. The working class doesn't care for that nonsense, and the upperclass are already self-confident enough not to buy into it.

It's nothing to do with wealth itself; wealth doesn't really change your class - it's more about upbringing and education Bob the plumber can be making more than some university graduate, but it wouldn't change his class.

underclass hates middle class because envy, and because they remind them of their own shortcomings and failures.
ruling class hates middle class because they don't like commoners getting uppity.

The upper middle class (whom make it roughly into the top 20% of the UK's population) are disdained by many for the simple fact that they (more than top 1%) are those that are keeping things as they are. They 'check their privilege', but would never relinquish it. They secure the good education and future for their children (the truth is it’s a zero-sum game; there are only so many good jobs, spots in elite colleges and tony area codes to go around) at the expense of the remaining 80%. And with the increasing segmentation of the UK's society among class lines, this upper middle class is the more visible subject of derision, rather than a very small-numbered ultra-rich. The fact that they're snobbish pricks that excuse away their status with meritocracy (when push comes to shove) only adds fuel to the fire. TL;DR the upper middle class in the UK are viewed as hypocritical cunts that "support" yet belittle those beneath them to feel good about themselves.

I'm not British but the "middle class" people I've run into have more of a tendency to be "fake boujie" and wrap up a lot of their income in rented luxuries like cars and nice neighborhoods. They also seem to be overly concerned with other people's business, so if the British equivalent is anything like that then I absolutely understand why they're hated.

With the passage of time we have seen a split in both the middle class and working class, You have the lower "working" class (unemployed council house etc), The working class, the lower middle class, the upper middle class and Lodsa money class.

The stereotypical Middle class is from the Upper Middle class the working class has shrank quite a bit merging with the lower middle class and the "working" class the reason for this is the increase in house ownership in previous generations and general spreading of spending power downwards and the fact a lot of Working class manual Labour jobs just don't exist anymore.

Anyway the Middle class that is the stereotype is the smug prick driving around in a fast car and sending their children off to private schools while lecturing the lower and working class on how Brexit is racist etc.

A lot of culture around the middle class all being wanker yobs stems from the 70s and 80s where the big manual labour industries were in their death-throws it kind of just persists to this day because people grew up with it especially in da Norf.

The Majority of British people who hate the middle/upper class are council house dwelling degenerates who live on pastry, vandalism and Football. Thankfully those people aren't capable of achieving anything and that's why they will always be the lower class.
Every day I wake up and thank God that, if I had to be raised in the UK, at least it was in an area where there were still Grammar schools.

There's no way my parents could have provided a meaningful education for us otherwise
