“The British people are simultaneously sceptical of government and largely ignorant about it”, says Robert Colvile, Director of the Centre for Policy Studies.
Robert is quoted in the Sunday Express, 22 July 2018, in respone to CPS polling that showed only 9% of Britons had significant faith in elected officials, while only 71% of those surveyed knew MPs made laws that affected them.
The polling comes ahead of the launch of ‘Who Governs Britain?’, a new report from Matt Warman MP which examines the gulf between the public and politicians and puts forward proposals to try and bridge the gap.
‘Who Governs Britain?’ is published by the Centre for Policy Studies and available to download here.
