Quote: Those questions looked loaded for a specific purpose, or outcome.
this is more or less standard procedure these days surely?

I gave up half way through.
Quote: It is a badly designed set of questions that assumes if you are resident in England you are English and the choices were over emotional so I think the results for people like me will come out wrong. How can I say I am proud to be English if I am not English.... BBC Please go and devise a sensible well structured set of questions.
I think if you click Scotland, Wales etc at the bottom you get questions relating to those countries. Or at least they change the word English to say Scottish.
Quote: Just my point because in here you're really quite a happy chap
I am????......That's news to me, I've been trying to be an all round nasty bas**** for years, I must try harder!
As my wife tells me, I'm grumpy but funny?......No I dunno what she's talking about either?
Bloody Hell reading you guys responses has pi$$ed me right off, up until reading that I was an Optomist! (8o)
Sorry, I got to page 11 and decided it was a piece of ****. very badly designed. obviously has a hidden agenda.
Like any set of stats or study results ... You get the response you generally either want or expect if you ask the right questions. Honestly you could probably make someone sound a polar opposite if you ask a set of questions in two different ways. A similar thing may apply in interviewing suspects of crime, or sales techniques, etc etc
Did anyone strongly agree with "People should support their country even if their country is wrong"? Sounds completely mental to me.
I'm an optometrist !!!
that's another way of looking at the situation
Quote: Based on your answers, you are an optimist.
On balance, the future looks bright to you. The prospect of change doesn't scare you too much and you find much to be proud about. Challenging times – but, despite some minor wobbles, you remain hopeful overall.
Generally true, but I don't find anything to be proud about, and that's how I answered - didn't say I was proud about anything.
I'm not really an optimist, but I'm probably less pessimistic than most Brits.
How can you all get up in the morning and be so pi$$ed off and negative - it must make bloody long day for you all...............
Get up in the morning ?
So that's the problem, early morning grumps.
I had my optimism before going to bed in the morning
Quote: Get up in the morning
Now there's a fecking novel idea!......That's assuming I've been able to get up the stairs and I had any sleep the night before and the night before that and the week before that and the month before that. Why? Well there's the spinal pain I suffer from an accident I had years ago, then there's obstructive sleep apnea. That's before we even get to the mental illness due to head injuries from the same accident and then all the worries I have about how I'm going to pay all the friggin' bills and the bas**** tax man, the morgage.........Blah de blah de blah.
Pretty much like everyone else I guess in this current climate....
I feel almost guilty now.
In the last couple of weeks, I had my voluntary redundancy approved, had my application for free bus pass approved, and paid off my mortgage.
And met my nephew's new wife
I can see the people in my department who can't afford to take VR may have a tough time coping with a reduced workforce and new methods, but at the same time I think some vacancies will open up so some younger people will be able to shift from short low paid contracts to real jobs, and get a start in life.
Hence I can feel "uneasy" about the economic and political situation, but still feel "hopeful".
And whereas I'm not going to have much money myself, I am going to have a lot more freedom, so there is the same sort of trade off.
