    Nono, it's my first time here.

    I'm not an anarchist.

    Nah, I'm for the complete legalization of drugs, porn and prostitution..
    I also fully support the latter two and while I'm somewhat authoritative on the use of drugs, I've seen some pretty convincing evidence to the contrary so I'm currently undecided. We have multiple libertarians in the Conservative & Unionist party so if you ever get fed up with those ‘closet-communist-green-hippies’ as you so precisely put it, I'm sure we'll be able to accommodate you. :yy: (Or perhaps it would be even better to purge the Liberal party of those commies. )

    Actually, it's quite difficult to judge someone on TSR from their party affiliation since these parties seem to be five points farther in the left than the real UK parties. Even TSR UKIP is quite mild.

    Have you not called yourself an anarchist in the past.

    Which do you value more, your economic or social policy.



    Didn't you lead the center party once or am I thinking of an older member with a similar name.

    If so, that's some shift.
    Not that I remember, although I'm interested in some of the ideas and literature around it and it isn't far from what I believe, just a little too extreme. For instance I do support the existence of a justice and penal system although it would be very, very different to what we currently have.

    For me they go hand in hand. I believe in the freedom of people to the greatest extent possible while protecting the liberty of others, but unlike the traditional liberal viewpoint I don't believe you can be free whilst in poverty or subject to corporate hierarchy - I believe there's been too much emphasis on freedom from the state, as important as that is, at the expense of other areas. If I had to put a label on my politics it'd be libertarian socialism, but based around the collective liberty of peoples and workers rather than state dictats.

    I think it's mostly due to the fact that we're a different generation – young people born into a different society with different moral values and easy access to all public information. If we're making all kinds of concessions to LGBT, I don't see what's the problem with porn and prostitution… If the legalisation of drugs leads to a decrease of drug-related crime and brings in some tax money while not turning the population into The Walking Junkies with no jobs and heavy use of NHS resources to treat the consequences of their addictions, I don't see anything wrong with that either.

    TSR UKIP actually have a proper lefty amongst them. :mmm:

    Main difference is social I think, only Labour and Ukip have different economic memberships to RL I think (Labour less Blairites here, Ukip less ultra right wingers).

    I'm all for prostitution and porn both morally and economically however we have a nation with a large number of obese people and around a fifth who smoke, I don't consider people capable of entirely rational decisions when it comes to health and with some drugs having negative effects (heroin addiction) I consider it plain immoral for the state to allow its citizens to harm themselves.

    Nice to see there are plenty of lovely lefties
    I would let my tests speak for themselves but I'll just go ahead and say it - I agree with a good few Trotskyist policies.

    True Classical Liberal here, not like the other closet-communist-green-hippies in my own party.
    You're further to the right than I am. Are you sure the Liberal party is right for you?

    If you depose Jarred and install me as Leader, we may be able to negotiate.

    There is no gag on UKIP members doing these tests but members have not been encouraged to take the test; I do not enjoy answering 50 questions in a test which uses arbitrary weightings based on an answer to a question which is dependent on interpretation.

    I don't think he'd be too happy with that
