Survey - What Is The Best Thing About Britain

By Connor Ibbetson writing for YouGov

From the article,

At the top of the list, 62% say the NHS is among the best things about the country. The NHS is the most popular answer across generations, with at least half in each age group picking the health service but especially those aged 65+ (71%). Britain’s countryside is the only other aspect to garner more than half of the public’s vote (61%). Another 37% say that our history and shared national pride are among the best things about Britain today. There is a substantial disagreement among the generations, however, with 51% of those 65 and over citing British history versus 20% of 18 to 24-year-olds. Despite the upcoming Platinum Jubilee, only 34% say the monarchy and royal family are among the greatest things about Great Britain. The royal family is the answer most likely to divide the generations. Half of those aged 65 and over (51%) say it is among the best things about Britain - but only 9% of those aged 18 to 24 say the same.

When it comes to what is best about Britain, there is generational disagreement over the royal family, which might not bode well for its future.
