Default Who do you side with politically?

A little quiz that distills your responses and tells you how aligned you are to various UK political parties. In perhaps a little more detail than the average internet quiz.

In the interests of transparency, I can tell you that I am 88% Lib Dem (no change in 20 years) and 82% Labour, followed, rather curiously, by 80% SNP and 77% Conservative.

Which goes to show that there's bugger-all difference between the major parties (sorry, included Lib Dem's in that). Either that, or Meow's 3 times the woman she used to be...

It shows that the parties say many of the same things and have them in their manifestos, but whether they follow through or just say what they think they should is another issue. I suspect that there are bigger ideological differences at play too.

I was thinking the exact same thing. There should have been a question about how likely you think each party is to follow up on its promises.

27% Plaid Cymru
26% SNP


Funny. I have no intention of voting UKIP and I thought some of my selections were pretty liberal. I wanted to abolish university fees completely but only for UK residents.

By the way, some of you may not realise but the "choose another stance" brings up a bunch of alternative options which can help refine your decisions.

Edit: I took the quiz again as I noticed there were additional hidden questions and I also weighed each response. New results:

83% UKIP
83% Conservative
60% LibDem
43% Labour
