    Aph - seriously, if you wanted to make the OP more grammatically correct, names correct etc...:

    If you don't want to use the corrections, then fine, but if you're asking for this to go out in the update and everything, I seriously believe that it should have correct names in.

    (Original post by Aph)
    The House

    As can be seen by this graph the House is according to Political Compass, centre left and mildly liberal. This is to be expected on a student website.

    Furthermore the ellipses represent deviation from the mean in both directions. As can be seen this suggests that there are 3 outliers on the left-liberal side:
    • Aph
    • TheDefiniteArticle
    • Saoirse:3
    and 3 on the right-authoritarian side:
    • Jammy Duel
    • Unown Uzer
    • Nigel Farage MEP
    The Liberals

    The Liberals are aptly named as they have no liberal members. Their former Chair itsdancross is almost on the Party's centre so in this measure at least he would be a good leader for them. However Jarred is the closest active member to their political centre so is still, at least in PC terms a good leader.
    The liberals have 2 outliers:
    • Green_Pink
    • Josb
    They are a fairly broad party spanning about 11 squares on the economic scale.
    Labour

    Labour is a moderately liberal left wing party. Their leader RayApparently is very close to their political center so that is a testament to his ability to lead.
    Labour seem to be split into 3 factions being: The Socialists, The Social Democrats and anon. This could lead to tensions in the party as each group wants different things but time will only tell how this dynamic plays out.
    Anon_98 is an extremist within labour.
    UKIP

    UKIP as a party seems to be, at least from the Political Compass results, a ragtag bunch of political misfits brought together by a mutual hatred of the European Union. I can see no distinct groupings to PC results. Their newest member and MP Duncs11 is closest to their political centre and indeed their Leader and DL are the 2 most furthest away from that centre which is an interesting dynamic. They have no outliers.
    The Conservatives

    The Tories are according to their PC result a little bit liberal but by sheer numbers are more authoritarian. Krollo is the only outlier with thehistorybore just within the second circle. Mobbsy91 their DL is closest to their political centre. There is a clear grouping just above the x-axis but other then that most other results are singular.
    The Green Party

    The Greens are the second biggest party economically. They have a strange situation where most of their members are out of their 'moderate zone' They are also the party who's centre has moved the most in the last 6 months becoming much more authoritarian and right-wing. Miser is by far the closest to their political center.
    The Socailists

    The Socialists as is perhaps to be expected are the least economically diverse party. Once again, they only have one member in their 'moderate zone', DaveSmith99 but as they have no leader this doesn't matter much.

    Comparison of party centers

    In the above graphic (0,0) is the House centre and all other averages have been adjusted accordingly.

    We can see a few things from the above, firstly that economically, Labour and the Greens are almost identical to a statistically insignificant amount but the greens are almost a point more liberal then labour. We can also see that compared to the rest of the House the Liberals are a mildly-liberal, centre-left party and that the Socialists are the most extreme part in house terms.
    What the house would look like if we were arranged by our PC results

    And the final part of my analysis is this; what I think the house would look like if we were arranged by our PC results.
    As the above graphic shows, I see 8 uniquely distinct groups in our results along with 2 independents. They are as follows
    The Socialists
    • Aph
    • United1892
    • cBay
    • cranbrook_aspie
    • Saoirse:3
    • TheDefiniteArticle
    • Stiff Little Fingers
    • DaveSmith99
    The Social Democrats
    • miser
    • Andy98
    • barnetlad
    • Snufkin
    • emiloujess
    • XcitingStuart
    • JoeL1994
    • Airmed
    • James Milibanter
    • RayApparently
    • Saracen's Fez
    • McRite
    The Liberals
    • Jarred
    • Krollo
    • Indievertigo
    • Little Toy Gun
    • Green_Pink
    • PetrosAC
    • Imperion
    • XenonSabre
    • Jesusandtequila
    • itsdancross
    The Statists
    • Nebelbon
    • Wellzi
    • anon_98
    The Libertarians
    • thehistorybore
    • cleverasvoltaire
    • ballenced
    • The Financier
    • Josb
    The Conservatives
    • Life_peer
    • Duncs11
    The Progressives (Tory's?)
    • Rakas21
    • mobbsy91
    • Tahret
    • tengentoppa
    • adam9317
    • bun
    • hazzer1998
    The Fascists
    • Unown Uzer
    • Nigel Farage MEP
    The Independents
    • Jammy Duel
    • BMcGovven
    Although I know that this will never happen I do wonder what an election with these grouping would bring.
    bonus
    When looking at the parties, I tried to find shapes. In my suggested Socialists I saw a satellite dish. In the social democrats I see a potted plant. In the liberals I see a person bending down. In the Libers I see a rocket ship & in the progressives I see a snake.


    Birchington could this either be in todays update or merged with the other thread at your leisure. Thank you.

    I think Aph was deciding who should be worthy of being entered into it probably.
    (Original post by nebelbon)

    Nope, we've got a couple of non-MPs in there.

    I used all the posts and most of the results from your graph. I didn't include inactives and banned people.

    Do you think we could get charts which have people's correct usernames on first...?

    That's fair. Irrelevant members would only skew the results.

    If you wait a day or two I had to rush these into an hour which includes writing up the analysis too.

    I'd rather wait a day or two to get any results rather than have a poorly produced set of results today.

    A few misspelt names = lots of misspelt names, on both the analysis and the graphs.

    Only = as well as poor grammar throughout, as well as a succinct lack of full stops.

    Jeez. Get over it. If you don't like it then don't look at it.
