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.

Nobody should be sacked for going on strike.

Correct grammar doesn't matter.

We should make use of any technology, if it benefits us.

There's no need to subsidise farmers if we can buy food more cheaply from abroad, even if that meant they went out of business.

Some overseas aid projects should be funded by the taxpayer, and can't be left to charities.

Aggressive foreign policies can put a stop to international terrorism.

Sometimes schools should teach children things which contradict their parents' religious faith.

Religious faith needn't be based on the literal word of God.

We should offer sanctuary to anybody fleeing persecution.

Fundamentally, the people of this country have the same character as those of our neighbours.

Governments will always be more powerful than large corporations.

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

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

There is no place for organised religion in government.

Breaking the law is not always immoral.
