Hi all,

This is an eye-opener and no mistake!

You'll be surprised at the outcome...I was!

You're obviously not a fan of the Euro, and at weekends like to dress up in red and chase small mammals about a field...?!

Oh, and you'd like to see a level set on immigration!

Shame on you!!

I came out as a Liberal, and a strong one at that.  What'll my former shop steward dad think...?!?

Quite and particularly when there are Magistrates, District Judges and Law Lords about for you to ‘pick on’ instead.

My political bias could be described as 'marginally more right wing than Attila the hun', So, I was surprised to see that I came out as extreemly pro labour! icon_eek.gif

I fear that my recent interactions with the law, may have influenced my normal 'honesty and forthrightness' And, perhaps, my chances of a pearage have increased in proportion to my new found capability to be 'duplicitous'. icon_redface.gif

I guess the answer's in the commentary;
The Green Party, which is of course strong on environmental issues, takes a strong position on welfare issues, but was firmly against the war in Iraq. Other key concerns are cannabis, where the party takes a liberal line, and foxhunting, which unsurprisingly the Greens are firmly against.
I did agree with them on Iraq and foxhunting.
I wouldn't have though that that should have created such an overwhelming result in their favour, particularly as there were no environmental questions.

I think I have to agree with Matt;

Well it's good for a laugh.
my score was:
labour-37
con-9
Lib 44
UKIP 2
Green 47

Bizare since I'm favour of the euro and would relegalise foxhunting - not because I want to do it  but because I  think parlaiment could have spent its time better. How many extra speed cameras are required to finance policing foxhunting?

How do you become green when you don't have to answer an environemntal question?

Well mine certainly doesn't come as too much of a surprise...I certainly dislike the loony social democrats, and the russkiy Labour bliar....#

Maybe my dislike of the libs & labour is my dislike of the EU constitution & the euro....  :?

Blimey. I got:     -13   Lab

                      +76   Lib Dem
                        - 1   UKIP
                      + 72  Green

I guess that's proof positive of what I've been suspecting.... Tony and his boys are closet Tory To$$ers!! It's alarming to find that Liberal Demotw*ts are (for my reasoning) more left/socalist/freedom oriented than Labour.
Don't like Green. Black's more my colour....

I've heard that one before, but I don't think there's any way a government would get that through.  Look at the public's dis-taste for identity cards; and that's only carrying a card!  

The current government scaremongering about nullifying the terrorist threat by introducing these cards is laughable.  How many times are we going to hear 9/11 mentioned for things that have bugger-all to do with it.  I heard a Tory front bencher use 9/11 as a reason for a nuclear deterrent for God's sake...

1. Identity cards.
2. RFID tagged number plates (see 3. below).
3. WI-FI network in street furniture (lamp posts, traffic lights).
4. Vehicle black boxes (for 'toll fees' and/or pay as you go insurance).

Safety Camera's are on the way out with this little lot...  :evil:

I too wonder how independent this poll is...

Or perhaps I should rephrase that as:

Either the survey is biased towards UKIP, or learned members of this site are slightly to the right of Dubya Bush.  :shock:

Oddly enough I came out predominately UKIP as well (which is odd because I never really considered myself a UKIP voter)

I think it's probably fair, comparing your answers against each party's stated aims.  I, like many voters, are so put off by UKIP's main policies that I've never investigated further - the rest of them may be quite reasonable.

Still not voting for them though - nice to have that confirmed by the quiz!

Interesting result nonetheless as I used to be a card-carrying Tory boy, but it does probably fairly reflect my current political leanings.

What it doesn't take into account is electability - sure, I like quite a few of the Green's policies, but would I ever seriously want that lot in power?  What a shambles that would be.
