Managerialism—the imposition of market “values,” 46 K E V I N FA R N S W O R T H such as entrepreneurialism, risk taking, and customer-oriented focus, into public services—constituted an important part of the Conservative’s programmes (Clarke and Newman, 1997; Cutler and Waine, 1998). Towards the end, successive Conservative governments sought to remove locally elected representatives from the public services and replace them with business people (Peck, 1995). Senior business people were guaranteed a majority presence within various quango bodies, including the Training and Enterprise Councils (TECs), and key roles on the boards of local education authorities (LEAs), grant-maintained schools, city technology colleges (CTCs), Further Education colleges, and the post-1992 universities.

Ultimately, for those at the very top, who Marxists refer to as the upper or ruling class, this type of cultural capital is supported by levels of wealth, property, and financial capital that are unavailable to others lower down the occupational hierarchy. Below the elite are what could previously have been defined as the “established middle class” that some sociologists call “the service class” of senior managers and higher professionals (the “governing caste,” as Marx called the political establishment of his day).
