Far from being classless, Britain is inceasingly ruled by oligarchies of professional egalitarians. By exploiting popular sentiment and taste, the privileged and opportunistic can earn fortunes and occupy positions of authority, while all the time protesting that they are only giving the public what they want. In this text, Gerge Walden unmasks the new elites, a class whose ambitions for social control rival their aristocratic forbears and whose populum is in its own way as damaging to democracy.
