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.

National law should always override international agreements.

Some medical research would require so many animal experiments that it should not be done, whatever the benefits.

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

Officials like public prosecutors should be chosen by the government, not directly elected.

Shared religious beliefs should be an important part of our society.

Anybody who wants top-quality health care should expect to have to pay for it.

Overall, economic migrants are a drain on our country.

It is only acceptable to use proportionate force to defend your property from criminals.

Our nation has a glorious history.

In the right circumstances, cutting taxes can increase government revenue.

It's more important to punish criminals than to rehabilitate them.

Everyone should have the right to trial by jury.

Workers in the public sector should be paid as much as those doing similar jobs in private industry.

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.
