Not as bad as the previous question

       Hot spots : Does Australia need to focus more strongly on racial

Dammit, Yes we are not intolerant enough and we should focus on increasing our intolerance. :-)

But then again, this is a newspaper and they just want to muddy the waters and stir up as much trouble and controversy as possible.

With a further 300 votes from when Peter checked the vote is still 58% in

However, as a friend pointed out to me, voting could be clouded by....
"The thing is, it's not asking whether you're in favour of duck hunting, but
whether you're in favour of a duck hunting SEASON, i.e., some people might
think the question is asking whether, if there is duck hunting, it should be
limited to only part of the year (so this is my position: there should be no
duck hunting, but if there is duck hunting, yes, it should be limited to a
season). It's a badly thought out question, but I trust the results of the
poll aren't going to influence policy."
