Once they were portrayed as the salt of the earth, the white working class is now demonised. In the wake of the Stephen Lawrence inquiry, they were cast as wholesale racist cattle by the liberal press; the rightwing press mock their tastes and attitudes; they take to the streets when paedophiles and asylum seekers are in their midst; they expose their lives in TV documentaries; they love Gucci and hate the Euro; the broadsheets cast them as xenophobes and exhibitionists and mock their tastes and attitudes. Who are the white working class and what have they done to deserve this portrayal? Michael Collins was brought up in Elephant and Castle, where his family had lived for generations. Here he looks back at the intertwined history of Walworth and his family, from his great great great gran...

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj Grayson Perry, one of Britain's leading artists and winner of the Turner Prize, has always been fascinated by taste - why people buy the things they do, wear the things they wear and what they are trying to say about themselves when they make those choices. In this three-part series, Perry goes on safari through the taste tribes of Britain, not just to observe our taste, but to tell us in an artwork what it means. The work he'll be creating is a series of six imposing tapestries called 'The Vanity of Small Differences' - his personal but panoramic take on 21st century taste. In each episode, he'll embed himself with people from across our social spectrum - the working classes of Sunderland, the middle classes of Tunbridge Wells and the upper ...

What is WORKING CLASS CULTURE? What does WORKING CLASS CULTURE mean? WORKING CLASS CULTURE meaning - WORKING CLASS CULTURE definition - WORKING CLASS CULTURE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Working class culture is a range of cultures created by or popular among working class people.

We talk to writer, commentator and activist Owen Jones about the 2016 edition of his landmark book 'Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class' published by Verso. Reflecting on the changes in society and the representation of the British working class since 'Chavs' first hit the shelves in 2011, Jones describes a new political landscape -- but one in which 'Chavs', repackaged and with a new introduction is still, for the author, all too relevant.
