This statistic shows the level of perceived political influence of the public in Great Britain (GB) from 1986 to 2012. In 2012, 59 percent of respondents agreed that they had no say in government decisions. This is however a decrease of 12 percent from 1986, indicating a rising feeling of political power amongst the Great British public.

People like me have no say in what the government does. Do you agree with this statement?*
