Summary "Every year since 1983, British Social Attitudes has given the public a voice so as to shed light on how British society looks and feels ... The findings described in this report are based on interviews carried out a few months after the 2010 election that ended 13 years of Labour government and resulted in a Conservative-Liberal Democrat administration. And so this year's report sits on a cusp: reflecting people's experiences of Britain under Labour, but also informed by their hopes, fears and expectations of life under the Coalition. No one was predicting riots at the time of the survey, but the findings still provide valuable clues as to some of the key questions now confronting our society. How do people respond to prolonged economic uncertainty? Do people think we're generally cohesive and optimistic? Or are we beset by the kind of fragmentation and pessimistic inclinations that the Prime Minister has memorably decried as 'can't-do sogginess'?"--P. xvi.
