Interesting article.

And to think I'd assumed that Australia was essentially a classless society!As my wife says to assume makes an ass of u and me






It's an impossible concept. Anywhere. Life ain't like that now, last year nor the next. Guess we've all had time to get used to it. Strictly between the two of us, I think that's a pretty damned good thing: makes us all strive to better ourselves. However, still can't sing, however much I try to educate myself on the matter, however many musos I shoot.

Maybe that proves my point, at least to myself. Depressing, innit?

If I reach into my sky¹, and can’t locate a single Oxford²—no sausage³ whatsoever—I pulls out me Scotland⁴, stick it inna the cab’s⁵ *hole in the wall* [couldnt find a rhyme for ATM, as we callem in Oz], wot fun is there havin’ the full phrase there for all to see? No mystery!

Time to go down the rubbidy⁶, sit on me aris⁷ and sink a few Britneys⁸. And maybe have a pony⁹ in the Khazi out the back.

Some Australian rhyming slang.

Is that rhyming slang for *wankers*? [so, merchants then?]  Grin
Q: What is the collective noun for bankers ?
A: "Wunch", when you see a group of bankers you can say: "What a wunch of bankers!".

Have to respond because your comment struck a cord.

My Aussie wife returned to Australia after 15 years absence.  She's 60 years old.  Some lady we met older than my wife asked her, what school (meaning primary/secondary) was she from?  Despite such a dated question and weird concern, she responded with some very exclusive school in Sydney, and so then the lady became friendly and amenable.  Yea, so class distinction is alive and well here.

You really believe that it can ever not exist? That in one form or another, from the old standard of birth to its contemporary alternatives such as business success, people will look at one another without making any judgements (silent or otherwise) of their own based on whichever criterion turns them on?

In most cases the questions aren't even required: one can tell a lot from simply keeping the ears in tune and the eyes open. There is an upside (a word that would have had you barred from polite society): surprises can be sweet if infrequent.

Agreed.  We all make judgements.

Just what struck us as weird that this seemed to be the defining characteristic for her assessment of the quality, viability, whatever of a person so that for instance, if my wife had answered a public school, it wouldn't have been a surprise if the woman stopped talking to us altogether.

So it seems the key is to at least recognize one's in-built and inevitable judgements, prejudices so to be aware of them when interacting with people and how those judgements/prejudices may unnecessarily and wrongly influence one's opinion of someone.

But, would she have known that in England, a public school is anything but that, and that few have the funds to send their kids to what are, perversely, really very private schools? In some areas, being a public schoolboy might get you killed - best not wear that blazer and tie, Nigel!

Funny language, English...

"Public school" is my terminology ... see I'm a septic tank (I think that's the correct rhyming slang) and so it's a bit confusing who's English I'm using: American (where I'm from), Australian (where I live), British (company where I work) and Indian (with whom I also work) ... yea lots of variants out there.
