The annual BBC World Service Country Rating Poll showed the countries who have the most positive views of the UK are the US (80%), Australia (79%) and Canada (69%). In total, positive views of the UK have risen from 53% in 2010 to 58% in 2011. Canada came third in the survey in terms of positive influence, followed by Japan, France, Brazil, the US, China, South Africa and India. Those surveyed gave the most negative rating to Iran at 59%, then North Korea at 55% and Pakistan at third last with 56%. A spokesperson for Globescan, the research company who carried out the poll, commented: 'We (the UK) are high profile as a successful, democratic, stable, developed country with relatively little baggage... In terms of lifestyle and its high-quality products, Germany has a successful image and doesn't have the baggage that countries like the US and China have, which can be seen as culturally controversial.' http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/lobal-Poll-Sees-UK-Rated-Second-Most-Influential-Nation-After-Germany-00033 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/lobal-Poll-Sees-UK-Rated-Second-Most-Influential-Nation-After-Germany-00033 Poll Shows Public Support for UK Voting Reform on the Decline Public support is moving away from the suggested historic reform to the voting system, according to a Populus Poll for The Times newspaper released today.

However, encouragingly, the report highlighted that 21% of firms surveyed do employ apprentices - 32% of which say that the apprenticeship training schemes were effective in addressing shortages of technical skills. In addition, 7% of business leaders from companies employing apprentices, found it an easy task to find suitable young people for the roles. The report, to some extent, highlighted young people's lack of basic skills.

Whilst polls have repeatedly found the pro-Union argument to be leading, the extent of that lead has varied wildly. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Market-Research-Sends-Mix-Messages-About-Scottish-Independence-01644 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Market-Research-Sends-Mix-Messages-About-Scottish-Independence-01644 Voters Express Difficulty in Finding Referendum Information, Survey Shows With the Scottish referendum around the corner, an Ipsos MORI poll has revealed that many voters have expressed difficulty when it comes to accessing the information they require to make an informed decision about which way to vote. The survey, which questioned 1,006 respondents aged 16+, discovered that just one fifth (20%) of its participants found it easy to unearth trustworthy information - around one sixth (16%) said 'fairly easy' and 4% said 'very easy.' In contrast, the majority (61%) said they found it hard to find trustworthy data - almost one third (32%) said 'fairly difficult' and around three in 10 (29%) said 'very difficult.'

Slightly more (44%), however, said they found it either 'fairly difficult' (28%) or 'very difficult' (16%) to locate useful guidance.

In contrast, almost three fifths (56%) conveyed difficulty when it came to unearthing factual documents on the referendum - one third (33%) said they found it 'fairly difficult' and around one quarter (23%) said 'very difficult.' http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Voters-Express-Difficulty-in-Finding-Referendum-Information-Survey-Shows-01660 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Voters-Express-Difficulty-in-Finding-Referendum-Information-Survey-Shows-01660 Identity Should Remain Anonymous in Sexual Abuse Trials Unless Guilty, Brits Say According to a recent survey, the majority of Britons believe people who are accused of sexual abuse crimes should only have their identity revealed if they are found to be guilty. Of the 1,704 British adults questioned, six in 10 (61%) agreed with the above statement - age and gender appeared to have little effect on people's views. Around one quarter (26%) said people who are accused of sexual abuse crimes should have their identity revealed only if they are charged - 18 to 24-year-olds (18%) were least likely to agree with this, and 60+ year-olds (31%) were most likely to concur. Furthermore, less than one in 10 (7%) thought people who are accused of sexual abuse crimes should have their identity revealed once they are accused - UKIP voters (10%) and 60+ year-olds (11%) were most likely to hold this view. One in 20 (5%) responded by saying they 'don't know,' and 1% said people who are accused of sexual abuse crimes should never have their identity revealed - Liberal Democrat voters (3%) and Scottish residents (3%) were slightly more inclined to agree with this statement. When questioned about the BBC's recent coverage of police officers searching Cliff Richard's home following sexual abuse allegations made against him, more than seven in 10 (72%) of the survey's respondents said they were wrong to broadcast this coverage. Around one sixth (15%) said the BBC were right to air the coverage and 13% said they did not know. The research in this insight was conducted by YouGov. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Identity-Should-Remain-Anonymous-in-Sexual-Abuse-Trials-Unless-Guilty-Brits-Say-01674 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Identity-Should-Remain-Anonymous-in-Sexual-Abuse-Trials-Unless-Guilty-Brits-Say-01674 Majority of Brits Support Labour’s New Policies, Poll Shows A recently conducted survey has uncovered the public's opinion on several of the Labour party's new policies.

In contrast, one third said they either 'tend to oppose' (21%) or 'strongly oppose' (12%). When asked about the Labour Party's policy idea to means-test the winter fuel payment for pensioners so it no longer goes to the richest 5% of pensioners, three quarters (75%) of the survey's respondents said they were in favour of this, compared to less than one fifth (18%) who were against it. Furthermore, around seven in 10 (72%) said they backed Labour's plans to introduce a new tax on properties worth over £2million - more than two fifths (42%) 'strongly supported' this, and three in 10 (30%) said they 'tend to support' it. At the other end of the spectrum, just under one fifth (18%) said they disapproved of this proposed policy - just over one in 10 (11%) stated they 'tend to oppose' and 7% 'strongly opposed.' And, finally, when questioned about the Labour Party's strategy to increase the top rates of income tax to 50p for income over £150,000, almost two thirds (65%) said they supported the proposed action - almost two fifths (38%) said they 'strongly support' the plan, and more than one quarter (27%) said they 'tend to support it.' Conversely, just under one quarter (23%) said they opposed the idea - around one sixth (15%) said they 'tend to oppose' and less than one in 10 (8%) 'strongly opposed.'
