YouGov: Young White British Men are Most Derided Group in UK, Survey Says

Published

on

Young white British men are the most derided group in Britain, according to a survey that highlights drinking and  drug-taking as their most negative traits.

The YouGov poll found that people expect white British men in their twenties to be the laziest, rudest and the most promiscuous group in the country. It also found that people believe they are the most likely to get drunk and, along with black Caribbean men in their twenties, to take drugs.

Researchers explored people’s attitudes to 48 different groups of men and women in three different age groups and asked pollsters to score them on a set of positive and negative criteria.

White British men were the worst ethnic, gender or age group on five negative traits and the second worst on five positive traits. Their worst trait was seen to be their perceived desire to “get drunk frequently”.

YouGov’s Peter Kellner said: “The people we regard as the laziest, rudest, most promiscuous, drunken drug-takers are white men in their twenties.”  The survey, carried out by YouGov for Prospect, used data from 48 separate surveys. It found that white women in their sixties were the most popular demographic, followed by white men in their sixties.

The pensioner appeared extremely distressed throughout the video and could not speak clearly.

One angry male passer-by accused the caretaker: ‘How would you feel if your daughter treated you like this?’

He criticised the caretaker and said she should bring the pensioner with her.

The caretaker replied: ‘[If I had] pushed her back, she would tell [on me].’

Another female bystander pointed out that the pensioner neck had turned red because of the rough treatment.

After being lambasted by eyewitnesses, the caretaker untied the pensioner and pushed her away.
