    As others have said the left right distinction is generally meaningless.


    I'm an extreme pro EU social liberal and I am fundamentally opposed to religion, particularly abhramic ones . I think there are global universal 'rights' that should be protected regardless of 'sovereignty'.

    Two people who I agree the most with are Yaris Varoufakis and Christopher Hitchens

    I'm not so sure about that.
    Only when encompassing things in terms of pure economics does it carry any real point.

    For instance: David Cameron, Donald Trump and Douglas Carswell can all be labelled right wing - despite having hugely different ideas.

    Where do you draw the limit between the market and the state? Do you want a so called 'night watchmen state' ?

    I'm not entirely sure how sustainable such a state wouldd be, but as close as possible, yes.

    I'm not against all government intervention, it should just be limited as much as possible. The state should offer key services, education, health that anyone may access etc but should allow more room than currently for competition and choice in these areas. I am also in further of further deregulation, I believe governments are generally poor economic mangers and that the market, again generally, suffices in meeting the needs of consumers.

    I also believe the state should scale back it's intervention in people's lives, in our civil liberties. For example, I am firmly against policies such as the Snoopers' Charter and others of that ilk.

    Apologies for that late reply, I unexpectedly became engaged in an education debate, my tiredness may affect the quality and sense of my answer.

    Left-wing, but not Far-Left.

    Nearly everything about the Right repels me; too much hatred and selfishness. There is a superiority complex in most of their ideologies too, and I'm not referring to the Centre-Right (not really a fan of them either though).

    Reasonably Left-Wing about most things, but not an apologist.
    Considering there are many centre left applogists around and pro Islam supporters, it's to be expected of the general left too. Left and Islam are one of the same thing these days.

    And many Right-wingers are apologists for racism, sexism, homophobia and various other forms of bigotry. The Left and Islam are one of the same? LOL it's not like one can ever expect you to provide evidence to support your statements.

    My vote is with Labour, but if I'm being honest, the whole political system is seriously damaged at the moment. I completely disagree with the Conservatives' policies, however I don't like Corbyn's view on some issues (like migration), but I agree on most of his terms like the mansion tax. Left Wing!
