The idea of smart homes is a hot one.Many companies have developed products that combine smart home sensors with smart home controls to provide a wide range of home security features.But there's still a lot to be said for simplicity.You don't need to buy expensive hardware to get a smart device.You can get a little bit of everything, which is good if you're in a hurry.But when you're done tinkerin...
By Tom BradyFamily values are at the heart of the British people, and it’s not hard to see why.
As the British government struggles to reconcile its relationship with the growing right-wing movement, and the Conservatives continue to win back support from traditional supporters, the family value agenda has emerged as the driving force behind the Government’s efforts to appeal to a new and growing audience.
The family values agenda is at the core of what the Government wants to do with respect to immigration, and has been at the centre of the debate over the future of Britain’s membership of the European Union.
According to the British Social Attitudes Survey (BSAS), a key indicator of public opinion, two-thirds of Britons think immigration is bad for the country and a quarter believe it is “very bad”.
The findings show that British people have very different views on immigration.
More than a third of those surveyed by the survey (36%) say immigration is good for the economy, compared to just over one in five (20%) who say it is bad.
Only one in ten (9%) think immigration has no positive impact on the economy.
There is, however, an equally strong support for Britain’s position in the European community (60% say we should remain in the EU), but even with that support, one in three (33%) say they feel more at home in a European country than they do in Britain.
The BSA survey was conducted in October and November 2016.
The latest data for the BSA was released on Thursday.
The results are based on 1,000 interviews conducted in a sample of 2,200 adults aged 18 and over.
The full BSA results are available here.
