On plastic bags and wheelie bins

  1. After applying to a British university, I recently got a wonderful green form that asked, in essence,
    a) Are you a pedophile? and (here the form gave the impression of narrowing its eyes)
    b) Ever so slightly more importantly, do you think you're going to benefit from a red cent of our taxpayers' money?
    It reminded me of Alice's Restaurant ('Kid- we only got one question..') and made me wonder if our Australian, currently debated, Cultural Values boil down to one (or not quite two) in the same way.
