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.

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.

A person's social status shouldn't depend on who their parents are.

Sometimes the only way to make a legitimate point of view heard is to break the law.

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

Art shouldn't receive government funding.

Companies should be free to pay their executives any salary, however large.

Scientists bear a moral responsibility for how their discoveries are used.

Everyone should stand up for the National Anthem.

The wealthy shouldn't pay a larger proportion of their income in tax than the poor.

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

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

Schools should do much more than just training people for the workforce.

Nobody should be sacked for going on strike.

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

Members of society needn't be familiar with the history and traditions of our culture.
