"FFS I'm sick and tired of having to see a bloke bend over to pick something up or lean over and see their arse crack. For christ's sake pull your pants up or buy some underpants you bogan because nobody want's to see it. And this is a boat building shed (well one of them) not a porn studio."
A few statements from the test were pretty interesting:
1) Government should increase taxes so that it can do more for its citizens (big lefty answer to strongly agree, which I did, but it'd be interesting to see how everybody answered that one)
2) Governments should do more to help struggling artists, writers and poets (I agree that culture should be an important priority of government, but wasn't in enthusiastic agreement that we weren't doing enough)
3) A high rate of inflation is a more serious economic problem than a high rate of unemployment (I'm actually quite interested in how people answered this).
4) High schools should provide students with condom vending machines and syringe disposal points (not both, IMO)
"Protecting the environment is more important than providing social welfare services to people in need" - thoughts on this one?
It's abit of a stupid question really, if you address inflation you're addressing unemployment at the same time anyways.

I agreed with that one, but not strongly IIRC. Actually tempted to redo the test at this point.Originally Posted by Slow Love™
These sorts of questions are hard to answer. I'm not sure that there's actually a need to do more for the arts, but I do believe the government should provide funding for art. I think I treated it as a question of philosophy and strongly agreed, but otherwise I'd probably have moderately agreed.2) Governments should do more to help struggling artists, writers and poets (I agree that culture should be an important priority of government, but wasn't in enthusiastic agreement that we weren't doing enough)
Strongly disagreed. Pretty silly, really.3) A high rate of inflation is a more serious economic problem than a high rate of unemployment (I'm actually quite interested in how people answered this).
As my -100% traditional values score might indicate, I strongly agreed with this one.4) High schools should provide students with condom vending machines and syringe disposal points (not both, IMO)

This one had me more stumped then Andrew Flintoff was at Adelaide in the ODI against New Zealand: "The lack of personal responsibility is a more important cause of crime than poverty and alienation" ?
I voted that I disagree, but I had really had no answer.
This one: "Indigenous Australians should not receive any special assistance — they should be treated exactly the same as other Australians in similar circumstances" We're all equal as far as I'm concerned.
Political Outlook: 17.8% (Centre Right)
Economic Policy:35.2%. (Centre Right)
Social Policy: -1.4%. (Centre)
Traditional Values: 18.7%. (Centre)
Greens - 40.8%
Democrats - 65.5%
Labor Party - 69.6%
Family First - 72.2%
Liberal Party - 71%
National Party - 70.7%
One Nation - 51%
Seems pretty accurate for me.
Disagreed to this one as wellOriginally Posted by Slow Love
Strongly Disagreed, a low Unemployment rate 90% of the time coincides with a low Inflation rate.Originally Posted by Slow Love
Disagreed, to both. IMO shouldn't be selling the idea of either activity at school, somehting it would be doing afaic despite the best intentions of the idea.Originally Posted by Slow Love
I'd be interested to see how the following questions were answered..
1)The lack of personal responsibility is a more important cause of crime than poverty and alienation
2)Australia should stop the export of live animals for human consumption
3)The government should set quotas and fine large companies that do not employ a sufficient proportion of people with a disability or women in senior management positions
4)All genetically modified foodstuffs should be banned
