Mind the values gap

29 June 2020

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.
