This might seem familiar to some you - can't beat a nice bit of repression -

Article: Most people would like to believe they’d have stood up against the homophobia of 1980s Britain – yet, by 1987, only 11% of the British public believed same-sex relations to be “not wrong at all”.

Same sex relations in England between over 21s became legal in 1967. Climate polls in UK show somewhere round 70% of the electorate see climate change as a serious threat and somewhere around 20% see climate change as an emergency situation. What are the figures for New Zealand?

IMHO it just shows you can't change peoples views through legislation. Views change through discussion, consideration of various views, thought.

 

No idea idea about figures, hopefully high, but I guess a lot come under the usual 'yes, of course the future is important, yes we do need to change, just so long as its not inconvenient for me.'

 

And a lot politicians are in big business pocket anyway...
