    A new look at Brexit and who it is going to effect.

    Post by zathrus on Thu 10 Aug 2017, 12:01 pm

    The Joseph Rowntree foundation and how it looks at Brexit.
    Brexit vote explained: poverty, low skills and lack of opportunities.

    This report provides unprecedented insight into the dynamics of the 2016 vote to leave the EU, showing how a lack of opportunity across the country led to Brexit.

    Devoting specific attention to data on the roles of poverty, place and individual characteristics driving the leave vote, this report shows how Britain was divided along economic, educational and social lines.

    In the aftermath of the vote few studies have considered both individual and area-level drivers of the vote to leave the EU. This report reviews existing research, examines new data and considers implications for the wider debate.


    Read the whole, ( very long ) report on Brexit from the JRTHERE if you want to.

    Sorry if this is a bit too long but I think we get the jist of it very early on.

    Thanks for that Zathrus; although it was a bit long, I read the Joseph Rowntree reports regularly.

    Most people will know that this foundation is very left wing, but few will know about many of the other interests it has when it reports to the people.

    If anyone wants to know more about the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and its fight against poverty you can find itHERE

    I didn't know that this body existed until you told me Zathrus. Thanks very much for that.

    I wonder why our "Papa" did not tell us about this before ?

    Thanks one and all about your good responses to my posting about the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

    I suspect Paps, that you just took it for granted that we all knew about this great body.

    Yes, sadly I did "take it for granted" that you all knew about the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

    I still want to thank you for reminding me of that fact.
