In this report, we asked you about your financial situation now versus your situation in June 2015; whether you feel better or worse off, who you hold responsible for changes to your financial wellbeing, which political party – and party leader - you trust to improve your situation, and the concerns you have as the UK prepares to withdraw from the European Union.
The results indicate that, as a nation, we have a strong feeling of disillusionment and mistrust – towards the Government, its policies, and the ability of political parties and politicians to genuinely understand and positively influence the finances of everyday people – something you attribute to political failure.
The key findings of our study of 6,000 UK adults show that your top three personal finance priorities for the next Government are:
- A freeze in energy price hikes (22%)
- An increase in the personal tax allowance (18%)
- More state aid in meeting elderly care costs (14%)
