This chapter looks at public attitudes to inequality, poverty, and redistribution, using quantitative and qualitative sources to ask whether public opinion has become more or less progressive since 1997 and whether New Labour’s attempts to redefine the party have influenced the way people think about these issues. There is a growing body of opinion that more radical measures will be needed to make further progress in reducing poverty and that this in turn will require much stronger public support. This chapter attempts to pull together the evidence on attitudes to social justice and the beliefs and values that underpin them.
