If you accept that all the other EU27 countries are also, at least to a large extent, class societies, then what makes the UK so different?

You're playing devil's advocate here :)  Of course, all EU countries have a ruling class with inherited wealth having an inordinate political power. But by that metric, Britain (or more to the point: England) is really in a league of its own. The only country I know of in the Western hemisphere with an unelected legislative body, FFS.
