There’s an increasing acceptance that Britain is a country that is not working and, in popular parlance is ‘broken’. Intriguingly, this is a view that’s shared across the political spectrum.

Telegraph columnist Charles Moore (2023) points out that though the expression ‘Broken Britain’ was used by Conservative opposition leader David Cameron to criticise Labour whilst Gordon Brown was still PM, it’s now being applied to the Conservatives who’ve been in power since May 2010.
