Tougher on immigration and welfare, softer on spending

Today the National Centre for Social Research publishes the 2012 edition of British Social Attitudes, an annual survey which asks around 3000 people how they feel about their lives and how the country is run.

This year’s edition is titled ‘Anxiety Britain’.   The BBC’s coverage focuses on hardening attitudes to welfare and immigration, and a greater openness to higher public spending.

Always interesting as background – but does the British Social Attitudes survey really have its finger on the pulse of public opinion?
