Peoplehave the right to identify however they want.
But imagine the power of uniting the working class across the country — we would counter the huge power and wealth that sits at the top of society. More than that, working-class solidarity was the basis of huge strides in British history, including the establishment of a modern caring state. With a shared class identity, we would rewire social justice. This is also about the story we tell ourselves about who we are.
