The elite of Britain
The British public believe MPs, CEOs and bankers to be members of the ruling class, but not journalists.
Who are “the elite”? A new YouGov study has looked at whether people in various occupations are members of “the ruling class in Britain”.
Topping the list are MPs, with 69% of Britons saying they are part of the elite. Just 13% say they’re not.
A majority of Britons also see CEOs as members of the ruling class (56%), while 52% say the same of bankers.
