Take this online quiz first, then come back to read the rest of this post. It won’t take long, honest.
All done? Don’t be too disheartened if you got a low score. If you scored more than zero, then you’re doing better than most people, apparently.
Yesterday, Ipsos-MORI published the results of a recent survey on public perceptions of common social policy issues. The results seem to show that the British public doesn’t really have a clue about anything.
I made this quiz based on the top 10 misperceptions identified by this survey. To be honest, I don’t think I’d have scored particularly well in this quiz before I read about the survey results.
How can people possibly vote sensibly if their perceptions are so distorted? Something needs to be done, really.
