(on the class system in English society)
Richard: The class system is one of the great sources of comedy and tragedy in English life. It's unimaginable for it to be taken away. It's so ingrained in everything. Oh, the borders have blurred, hugely, as there are so many dot-com billionaires running around all over the place. But essentially it's so deep in the English psyche that I can't see that ever disappearing.
