How much do people in the UK take a vested interest and have faith in politics and politicians?

The Today programme's Justin Webb investigated how people in Manchester feel about the democracy that people in the UK live in.

He heard from politicians and some people who have felt disengaged by politics.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 8 April 2013.
