Ironically this is a sign that the UK is doing well.
Studying valuable technology subjects is a sign of poverty.
If you are the first of group X to get the chance to go to college - you study science/medicine/engineering, because that is your only chance to escape the poor life your parents/grandparents had.
If you are at public school and you know daddy will get you a job at the bank then you can safely study art-history.
It's well documented across the world, first generation immigrants/women/working class do STEM, their kids do arts.
