    I'd personally say my Party, the TSR Liberals but it depends how much you lean left socially and how much you lean right economically. Lime-man is right in that you'd also fit the TSR Tories who have some socially liberal members.

    It depends on what you mean though, id defintely say that i lean left socially yet id be a fool to call myself a liberal.

    It depends on what the user decides the role of the state should be and how much of a say the state should have in one's life. Whether the role of the state is more important than economic liberalism and whether freedom is more important than social equality.

    Id say either the tsr tory party or the tsr liberal party.

    It depends on whether social policy is more important to you than economic policy (or vice versa).

    And how extreme the lean is, if it really is a lean by normal standards then certainly the liberals, if it's more towards what a normal person would call fairly libertarian, leans compared to the extremes, then it could go either way.

    Simplest solution to get this refinement: political compass or similar.

    Thank you all for your responses!
    What I mean by 'lean', is that I feel I am of a more centrist persuasion.
    In terms of social stance, I am totally in support of the LGBT+ community, and of feminism as well (NOT misandry). However, I am also deeply religious (I'm Hindu), and also believe 'political correctness' is being taken waaay to far. It is also worth mentioning that conservatism in the UK is far more liberal when compared to the US (most tories would probably be democrats).
    In economic terms, I believe that there is place for the government e.g. in health and environmental regulation, but I also feel that there should as little red-tape in carrying out business as possible, and that the minimum wage needs to be kept at a realistic and affordable level.
    I however don't understand why the centrist 'Liberals' have not fared well for at least the past century, an indication of an increasingly polarised society perhaps?

    Could you please elaborate on the major differences between the 2? Because the tories also have a (sometimes unfair) reputation for being too posh

    Well im a Tory SoS and i grew up in tottenham and now live in dagenham. We do have a few toffs but you'll find them everywhere you go (except Barking).

    The liberals value social freedom more than economic freedom overall. Their belief in a liberal society is their bond. In the tories its economic freedom.

    I'd recommend socialists as they are eurosceptic and labour are more nuteral.
    Also we should remain.

    Since when are the Socialists eurosceptic? We have one eurosceptic member.

    Ah, I wasn't counting Cran. I assume we have more europhiles but tbh it's not something we really talk about.
