Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You are assuming facts not in evidence. a) a good part of the working class doesn't think it is wealthy If they don't seem to care about economic issues it is because they have resigned. And b) the divide in so called social issues is a young/old divide. Not a class divide.

 While I don't have proof at my fingertips either, at least I do have an example: the pirates in Germany get a very considerable share of working-class votes. And diffuse as they are, social conservatives they are not.
