Abstract

The information an individual possesses will to a great extent determine the decisions he makes. If the channels through which one group of individuals receives information are characteristically different from those of some other group, then the two groups are likely to possess different perspectives and differing amounts of information over the same decision areas. In the present study, we have already found that Glasgow councillors, partyworkers and electors possess different perspectives and different amounts of information on a variety of current issues. In this chapter we will try to determine whether the manner in which Glasgow’s three political strata receive information can explain these differences.
