Proud to be British? Almost 2,000 respond

Earlier today I asked our supporters what the last few days had meant for them. I asked whether they felt more British as a result of the Queen's Jubilee or whether they turned off their television and did something else instead.

We have had an amazing response. 1,924 people have so far filled in our survey. The results so far are really fascinating. 825 people do not feel any more British after this weekend, 648 do feel more British and 441 are not sure.

When asked if a national identity is important, 1,203 said yes while 647 people said no. The remainder were undecided.

We also asked people if they thought "it is the job of HOPE not hate to help foster togetherness and positive shared identities in local communities?" An overwhelming majority (1,668) said yes, while 188 said no.

Over thousand people have also send in their own thoughts about what the last few days have meant for them. I will be looking through these tomorrow and putting some of the most interesting up on this blog.

In the meantime, please let me know if you the last few days have made you feel proud to be British

(Another 32 people have filled in the survey since I started writing this blog taking the total to over 1,950)
