I actually answered the questions honestly. I've done this before and used to be a bit further towards the red bit. But these days I really couldn't care less if people have a bit of weed in their house, the police have better things to worry about. Economically, I've been in the same place for years.
I redid it last night, ended up bang centre of the left liber box. I'm about as socially liberal as I used to be but I seem to have moved back left economically.

I've voted no. I agree this is a workable idea, but it's the wrong time for Europe to implement this. It signals to markets that they're not taking the Eurozone crisis seriously, and it'd be hard for businesses to take another cut in their profits right now.
I'd support this measure in a boom time though, when businesses can adjust to it in more favourable circumstances.
The Carbon Tax would only come into effect in almost two years time (with some delays for Central and Eastern European nations), by which time the Eurozone crisis should be over (and there is an EU Treaty being planned to solve the crisis)
