middle class

A country-dependent term of art broadly defined as the socioeconomic stratum between the working class and upper class. The middle class in the UK includes those who own a home and often another elsewhere (e.g., in Spain, Florida or France), go on regular holidays, have a good education and are firmly ensconced in well-paid, secure managerial or professional posts (e.g., medical doctors with the National Health Service). The upper class in the UK is comprised of aristocrats, landed gentry, and titled individuals.
