Political Survey

In this survey, you are asked to give your opinion of a set of statements characterising political views. Please rate each statement on the scale given, which runs from "strongly disagree" to "strongly agree".

For statistical purposes, please tell us where you live:

The following are a set of propositions. Tell us whether you agree with them, as they would apply to the country where you live.

It doesn't matter whether the mix of minorities in public institutions reflects their numbers in the general population.

Class distinctions should exist.

There is no such thing as an immoral sexual act between consenting adults.

It's more important to decrease the gap between rich and poor than to make the poor richer.

Our armed forces shouldn't intervene in other countries, even to stop genocide.

Religious faith should be based on the literal word of God.

Sometimes it's necessary to sack people who go on strike.

It's not worth raising interest rates to reduce inflation if this would result in the loss of large numbers of jobs.

Officials like public prosecutors should be directly elected rather than chosen by the government.

The people of this country have a very different character to those of our neighbours.

Drivers shouldn't have to pay taxes to cover damage to the environment caused by motor transport, since that would price some people off the roads.

Everyone should have access to the Internet.

Services like health care, education and social security should be provided by the government, not by private enterprise.

Dealing with nuisance crimes like petty vandalism makes serious crime less likely.

Overall, economic migrants bring benefits to our country.
