Brexit divides no longer define British voters
Polling for More in Common conducted at the end of last year showed that the predictive power of viewing politics through a binary Brexit lens is well on the way to breaking down.

My community’s broad support for renewables, even in our backyards, is indicative of what More in Common finds in communities across the UK.
