Term used to seperate the working class from the "does not work, will not work and has never worked" classes

The underclass usually occupy perfectly good council houses and then proceed to litter their gardens with fridges, dog turds, fast food boxes and other assorted items. The underclass enjoy decorating the inside of their houses in much the same manner and despite the apparent poverty in most other aspects of their lives they will still manage to afford a very large plasma t.v. (which is to be left on at all times)

The occupants of these buildings will almost certainly be claiming the following benefits

Child benefits- for their numerous offspring
Disability benefits- see "nerves", "depression" "ADHD" etc
Job Seeker Allowence- For not looking for a job
Housing benefit-

Please note that despite all of this the undeclasses still feel victimised particularly when their drunken domestic incidents are broken up by the police at 2am.

It should be noted that under no circumstances should a member of the middle class attempt to blame the underclass' woeful existence actually on the underclass, as the underclass will immediately find blame anywhere else. Because surely their total lack of motivation and morals is the fault of society.
working class- I need benefits to help look after my child

underclass- I need a child to help me get benefits

A derogoratory and unproven concept deriving from middle class snobishness/anxiety and used to describe the most vulnerable groups in western industrialised societies.

People who populate the more impoverished sections of the working class and who are collectively blamed for a host of social ills. People who due to their financial circumstances are unable to participate in mainsream society.

People perceived to be of no good to society and so those parents who do work hard in such adverse circumstances are stigmatised as wrong and deviant due to assumptions based on the actions of a minority. Their children do not receive the support they need to help them advance away from poverty.

Instead of being called deserving, hard working, or if unemployed are helped to gain meaningful work, security and education, ALL poor people are somehow deemed to be scroungers and layabouts.
The elderly

Mentally ill

Single parents


Asylum seekers

Manual workers................

The latest album by the very successful band Sum 41.

It is their first album since guitarist David "Brownsound" Baksh left.

They did, however, incorporate another guitarist for recording and touring, Thomas "Brown Tom" Thacker, but will not include him in band photos or the crew list.

The new album includes hits such as Underclass Hero, Walking Disaster, and March of the Dogs. The other songs are Speak of the Devil, Dear Father, Count your last blessings, Ma Poubelle, The Jester, With me, Pull the curtain, King of Contradiction, Best of me, Confusion and Frustration in modern times, and So Long Goodbye.

I recommend this album to any fan of the band. Actually, I recommend it to anybody.
Just picked up Underclass Hero. It's amazing, dude.

Even without Brownsound?

The unlucky few now, that cannot afford to have a cosmetic surgery. What am I talking about?

You! You must have done some kind of a change to some part of your anatomy. But, the rich and famous are upping the ante on the underclass that they go now to pre-paid 'surgery safaris' to stay untill the wounds completely heal somewhere in South Africa! These 'surgiholics' often deny the visible fact that they actually had say, a boob augementation op (the bustalization of plastits or Frankenboobs!) and are called the 'plastic closet' (or, in this very case 'Double-D-nials'!), or attend their own Botox Party (called 'BotoseXuals') and if they have no time for having a 'Botie', then they can have a 'lunchtime' lipo (a.k.a. microsuction: chemicals injected in desired areas to dissolve cellulite, like Lipostabil or 'flab jab'), or resolve to the latest UAL (Ultra-sound assisted liposuction), E-UAL (External ultrasound-assisted liposuction), VAL (Vaser® Assisted Liposuction), PAL (power-assisted liposuction: a 5000-rpm cannula headed SAL 'suction-assisted liposuction')... the list is long.
Body fascism is all the rage now... the dead also get their share of the cosmetic market: 'necro-cosmetics' is cosmetic surgery for the injured and defaced dead!
The 'cosmetic underclass' would be outrageous knowing that they can't have what those who will be buried six-feet in the sand have!
