We’re a deeply divided nation, too – and nearly three-quarters of us expect that to get worse in the year ahead. We’re torn apart by social class, by geography, and by how we vote – especially on Brexit. The starkest divide, though, is age: 52% of over-65s feel optimistic about the future of the UK, contrasting with just 23% of under-34s. Our focus groups, regardless of how they voted, felt the scales fall from their eyes as they watched “them” grapple with Brexit. Voters long for a leader to map a clear route through.
