This chapter investigates the influence of age, gender, class, education, income, religion, town size and rurality, parenthood, and occupational sector on attitudes towards rights and liberties. British attitudes towards the principle of liberty followed patterns broadly similar to those described by Sullivan, Pierson, and Marcus for practical tolerance. However, attitudes to the principle of equality — which Sullivan and his colleagues did not research even at the level of practice — followed quite different patterns.
