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.

Our nation has a glorious history.

A common language is not necessary for a cohesive society.

Sometimes international agreements should override national law.

Our society needs more lawyers.

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

Children should always obey their parents.

Nobody bears a moral responsibility for actions of their government if they don't support them.

It's more important that we elect parties in exact proportion to their support than that we each have individual local representatives.

Economic globalisation will decrease inequality.

Small businesses are more important to the economy than large corporations.

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

The government should act to stop companies paying executives excessive salaries.

New roads and railways should be built by private companies, not the government.

Everyone should have access to the Internet.

Nobody should go hungry, even if they refuse to work.
