Importantly, the trend is also overwhelmingly negative, with every age group having worsened since the start of the year. That takes quite some doing, but betrayal, dishonesty, breaking every promise and trying to cover your moral and political vacuum and police-state/pro-privatisation fetishes with tweets about football clearly are not playing well.
