I was lucky in the fact that when I went to University it was free and I got a grant. Most of my contemporaries were from similar backgrounds to me, comprehensive school educated, some with the main breadwinner long-term unemployed, so money was very tight at home for them, but they were bright, well-grounded and grateful for the opportunity to study in higher education. There were a few very posh kids, but they tended to stick to their own social groups. If anyone dared take the piss out of anyone for their social class, accent, or lack of money, they would have been told in no uncertain terms some home truths, and if they'd been particularly obnoxious then they would've been thumped. Mind you, accents and social graces can be very deceptive. One bloke I knew, who I got to know pretty well later on, a quiet, modest chap who was very well spoken, some would say he had a quite a posh accent. Turned out he was from a single parent family in Moss Side, Manchester, his Dad having bu33ered off before he was born. Looks and accents can be quite deceptive.
