    I don't. The Republican Party is far too religious for my liking. The Conservatives are generally secular in terms of policy & only really follow religion via traditionalism.

    The Greens are basically Labour's extra luvvy duvvy wing, or at least they were pre-Corbyn. Most of their stances on things are aligned with Labour.

    Labour and the Tories are basically coalitions, but the latter do a better job of keeping things together compared to the Left with its umpteen splinter groups.

    They've all got at least one fault or another.

    Conservatives-out-of-touch, but I guess the best out of the lot
    UKIP-racist, stuck in the dark ages
    Liberal democrats-not up to much
    Labour- we're not in the 50s anymore so nah
    Plaid Cymru-party for the Welsh, don't really care
    Green-unrealistic policies, meh hippies
    British Nationalists-basically UKIP2, but to a more extreme degree
    And of course Sinn Fein - literally run by a terrorist.

    That's the problem. It compromises political ideology.

    Forgot about them, but would've said that I didn't care.

    Not ideal to put it mildly, but necessary for the sake of the peace deal.

    At least If both sides split up we could probably end up with a Centrist coalition that everybody could put up with.
