I would not take the view that the General Public are illiterate, but they do appear to be unconcerned, not aware of what is actually occurring, or just complacent in certain areas.
It could be that these are areas in which they have no knowledge or have currently not come across or have access to.
A prime example is the varying knowledge with Social Care and Health Care, for most of us have accessed health care to some degree, but not necessarily social care. In this they are aware of the crisis in health care, which generally receives good press coverage and is seen as an essential service, while social care generally receives a bad press and is not seen as an essential service. This is shown by the degree of funding and the lack of it over the years. I have been involved in Social Care for over 40 years and a shortfall of funding as always been there,
Austerity is but the latest excuse, but this has had a much bigger impact on increasing the crisis over the last 10 years.

He is successfully using the Trump playbook, because rightly or wrongly, lots of people couldn’t care less. He’s a politician, of course he lies. Although he seems to do it a lot more than most.
