Racial prejudice in British society

Press/Media: Research

Release date: 7/5/2019

Description

As Sobolewska and Ford explain, “demographic change is slow, and large sections of the electorate are uncomfortable with identity change and rising diversity.” An angry, older voting bloc frustrated at what they see as a country changing too fast, could be strong enough to win one election, particularly in an atmosphere poisoned by a Brexit debate that Sobolewska and Ford warn “could further politicise and polarise those identity politics divisions,” sparking a culture war.
