That Brexit has impacted on our politics is hardly a profound insight. Nor is the notion that it has generated increased interest in the so-called ‘values’ division in our country. In this study, we aim to dig into these divisions in a little more detail.
Using a host of data, including a survey of the Labour and Tory grassroots carried out just after the 2019 election and a survey of MPs carried out at the beginning of 2020, we take a deep dive into the often contrasting attitudes of members of parliament, party members and voters.
The views expressed in this research paper are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the UK in a Changing Europe initiative.
