How difficult depends as much on your own aptitude.

It's as useful as any other degree, which is to say, either very or not at all, depending on what you do with it. The degree in itself isn't going to manifest a comfortable, well paying 9-5 job the second you graduate, although it will hopefully provide you with skills to help you find and apply successfully to such a position (or another one, if that is preferable).
As above, "difficulty" is subjective and shouldn't be a consideration when deciding what to study. If you are interested in and enjoy the subject, and reading around related areas (which can range from academic to current affairs) then it's suitable. If not, it's not. However as above you will need reasonable maths skills - if you haven't done AS/A-level Maths, you should definitely review your GCSE Maths. If you really disliked studying Maths then I'd suggest considering another course (perhaps Politics or Geography if you're interested in the current affairs aspect of it, or History or Philosophy if the academic style of the subject suits you more).
