Hey i was reading some stuff from uni and came across this - "In the wolrd we now live in, divisions into class are meaningless. We are all working people now." - Margaret Thatcher, 1988.
I find this quite bemusing. Even now, in the new millenium, there are still so much division and Differentiation between 'classes'. Althought they might not be as obvious or perhaps categorically apparent, class is still a big part in everyday life. I think its more ignored and because of a sense of arrogance from society, we try not to embrace the fact that as a society on a whole, there are still much to change etc.
What confuses me more is that she said this in 1988, when surely there was a more obscure boundary between the classes in society?? And what does she mean by 'meaningless'?? I cant grasp her concept at all.
Im not sure, i dont have any real knowledge on it to be quite honest, i was only alove for 3 years when she said this, so i cant really compare then to now, but i would like to know what everyone thinks.
