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.

Overall, economic migrants bring benefits to our country.

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

Legal protection for free expression creates more trouble than it's worth.

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

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.

For society to be cohesive, it is important that everyone shares a common language.

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

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

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

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

Drug abuse is a problem primarily because of its effects on society, not its effects on drug users alone.

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

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

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.
