I've been living here for 8 years, and still don't get it. Why are people so bothered by class?

Which bits of their culture have they left behind? Are we talking about culture as in books, music, art etc or culture as in way of domestic life?

I'm MC and unchuffed at the hint my life is devoid of culture when in fact, it's very rich.

I mean domestic life

Every place I have ever lived in - USA, Australia, France and UK - had cleat groups of people looking up or down at other people, judging each other on their clothes, educational attainments, what their grandparents did etc, etc, etc. I really don't understand why you single out this country. Sadly it seems to be a universal human need to organise societies in this way.
