Theresa May’s plan to put workers in boardrooms is extraordinary!
The next prime minister didn’t merely attack grotesque levels of pay in FTSE 100 boardrooms, a refrain heard in vague terms from most of the runners in the Tory leadership race.

Our poll indicated that the British public would vote to leave the EU; official polls predicted that the UK would voted by a tiny margin to remain. How did we do it with a zero budget?
Our poll was different; we asked voters using social media to say how they would vote, in, or out, and we also asked them to choose as many matters which they were interested in, from the economy, to their favourite sport!

In the snap poll we conducted on social media in the past week, we found statistical correlations that show some interesting trends.
Choose a subject or sport that voters said they were interested in or concerned about to see how that relates to their voting.
