Abstract

The annual British Social Attitudes survey is carried out by Britain's largest independent social research organisation, the National Centre for Social Research. It provides an indispensable guide to political and social issues in contemporary Britain, summarising and interpreting data from the most recent nationwide survey, as well as drawing invaluable comparisons with the findings of previous years to provide a richer picture and deeper understanding of changing British social values. The 27th Report focuses on the national mood after three terms of a Labour government. It includes analysis of the reaction to Labour's policies in health and education and explores people's perceptions of social mobility and inequality. It also examines the extent to which the banking crisis and MP's expenses scandal have shaped public attitudes and values
