    I assure you nobody here is a Tory. (We did have a Liberal Chair though briefly. )

    We cover most of the bases in the RL Labour Party and possibly some to the left of it too.

    On average I'd say we were somewhere in the middle, though no tories here.

    No they aren't blue labour are left wing social conservatives. Progress and Labour First are the closest to the Conservatives although they fall short of that.

    Complete mix, although we're definitely more left-wing than the pre-Corbyn rl Labour Party,

    Some of my views are Blue Labour-y. We don't have anyone that's full-blown Blue Labour though.

    Really? You mostly come across as a straight Green Party type person.

    United is more unconventional.

    That's because I don't often tend to comment on the things where I do have more socially conservative views. For example, I'm increasingly not liking the idea of mass immigration(though not for nationalistic or right-wing reasons) and I'm pro-life.

    I'm undecided on mass immigration, I'm unsure on it currently as I don't think immigration is bad, infact I think it's beneficial for society, but we are seeing braindrains in poorer parts of Europe, and indeed parts of the wider World. I also don't think we have systems set up to protect workers in regards to pay when it comes to mass immigration driving down wages.

    I'm just unsure on the issue, and I don't think any party currently has the answer to the issue.
