Luke Tryl, UK director of More in Common, said “In our conversations with Britons from across the country, they spoke passionately about the need to do more to tackle racism both on and offline and there was strong support for the message Black Lives Matter. That doesn’t make Briton’s Marxists or mean that they support all of BLM’s tactics."

Luke Tryl, UK Director, More in Common says "Red wall seat voters – and the whole country – desperately want to see results not rhetoric. Three years of a Government led ‘war on woke’ would be either a sign of recklessness or failure".

'Pursuing a ‘war on woke’ is bad leadership. Britain’s choice is not between a flag-waving jingoism or throwing its history into the river, and political leaders fail us when they frame debates in those terms.'

"The really striking think about much of the culture wars issues is that they frankly don't engage that many people....Politics needs to provide us a way forward that isn't always about trying to create false debate or false division"

"Britain’s culture wars are nowhere near as bad as those in the U.S. Let’s keep it that way... A recent opinion poll by the More in Common think tank shows 55% of U.K. voters believe their views are centrist, while only 33% of Americans identify as politically 'moderate'.”

"Nearly three-quarters of the UK public (74%) believe that ‘working together to protect the environment could build a society that’s based on sharing not selfishness, community not division’. The evidence suggests that Britons, like other peoples, are weary of political division and want to get past the polarisation that has characterised the past five years. They want to grasp the opportunities of the future and the accompanying benefits of a cleaner economy."

"As we rebuild the economy, build back better, post Covid, there's got to be a story that brings climate, economy, place-based development, local communities, tackling inequality. It feels like if we could bring those pieces together.. you would also be able to rebuild some of the trust in the system that has been lost in recent years."
