Is UK becoming more compassionate?

Is UK becoming more compassionate?

The percentage of Britons believing that "benefits for unemployed people are too high and discourage work" seeing its biggest fall in thirty years! This good news comes from the annual British Social Attitudes survey, which shows the biggest softening in attitudes so far. Does this mean that the UK is becoming a more caring, compassionate and tolerant place? Jesus promted us to love our neighbours. We therefore need to empathise with people in need in our communities, not blame them! One day it could be us in that situation, so we also need to practically help people and empower them and others in the community to help themselves!
