We held the Ipsos MORI End of Year Review and Christmas drinks on 12 December 2013, where we looked back over the year in politics, business and society.

It included the first release of key findings from our major new international study comparing Britain with 19 other countries, on everything from trust in government, our changing relationship with brands, social media use, to the colour of our eyes!

We were delighted to be joined on our panel by Dr Stella Creasy MP, Shadow Minister for Business, Innovation and Skills, and Matthew Parris and David Aaronovitch, of The Times.
