Sir: Both John Prescott and Clare Short seem to have misunderstood one of the fundamentals of the class system in Britain (report, 15 April). It is not like a theatre - one does not just buy the right ticket and take a seat. It is a club, and no matter how much you earn you must wait to be invited to become a member. Some people will never be invited, however wealthy they become.
