More than four years on from Britain's decision to leave the EU, Sir John Curtice, Ian Montagu, and Claire Elliott look at whether the divides that emerged between Remain and Leave voters following the 2016 referendum remain in tact. They also examine public attitudes towards a no-deal Brexit, and discuss the current relationship between Brexit vote and party preference.
Sir John Curtice and Ian Montagu are joined by Professors Maria Sobolewska and Rob Ford, authors of 'Brexitland: Identity, Diversity and the Reshaping of British Politics', who take us through the long-term social and demographic developments that have gradually reshaped British society and contributed to the UK's vote to leave the EU.
Sir John Curtice, Ian Montagu, and Alex Scholes discuss two chapters in the latest British Social Attitudes report which cover the political consequences of the Brexit process for levels of trust in government and interest in politics, and how people feel the UK government should approach specific areas of public policy post-Brexit.
