This page compares the sentiment for UK subreddits and compares it to the FTSE100.

What does sentiment mean?
It checks if the feeling/opinion of a piece of text is positive, negative or neutral (using machine learning)
Where are you getting the data for Sentiment for?
I'm reading/scraping 3 subreddits-- AskUk, UnitedKingdom and UkPolitics.
I chose these because they are the biggest in the UK, having roughly 3.5 million subscribers (in total)
while still having a balance of positive/negative views.
