With a caste of millions

Upstairs, downstairs and several levels in between, the English can't bear someone might be un-Class-ified;

People in the UK now fit into seven social classes, a major survey conducted by the BBC suggests.....
Class has traditionally been defined by occupation, wealth and education. But this research argues that this is too simplistic, suggesting that class has three dimensions - economic, social and cultural.
The BBC Lab UK study measured economic capital - income, savings, house value - and social capital - the number and status of people someone knows.
The study also measured cultural capital, defined as the extent and nature of cultural interests and activities.
Like whether or not they listen to the BBC?
