    I'm for multinationals because like it or not they create jobs and put vital money in our economy.

    Whereas I say if there is demand have a small British company or preferably a few of them fill it. No offshoring of jobs or profits, more competition, more innovation, everything can be taxed easily

    Almost exactly on me, (I'm a little more liberal) and right in the green/socialist range. Which is scary.

    Got a little bit more authoritarian but still as left-wing as ever, up the workers!



    I don't understand how anyone can manage to score so far right as this, the questions are written in such a centre-left way. I mean come on, I know the question is horribly biased but surely even right-wingers believe "globalisation should serve humanity rather than multinational corporations"...?!
    I know. I don't under stand either. Last time I took this I got bang right in the middle so obviously this quiz isn't that good at categorising people who are a bit more unconventially compared to the contemporary norm (I.e. many questions assume democracy or state schooling etc.) and it seems to me that the only way you could end up scoring in the top right is if you deliberately go for sociopathic options.

    Your result is probably correct, your not that extreme in your posts on most issues. The SNP thing is probably about the difference between the perception they give for votes (ultra socialist Tory haters) vs their manifesto (no further left than Farron).

    Not exactly relevant to that aspect but I was wondering what you thought about preventing (often larger firms) having 10 different stores in one city center. In one of the Indonesian islands they've limited the number of same company stores to try and protect local firms. I was actually thinking that if you limited it per postal area here it could work and the gap in the market be filled by smaller coffee shops and the like (the large firms would simply have one larger store).

    Thoughts.

    Puts me quite far to the left, and a moderate libertarian.

    To be honest I feel like more a centrist, especially taking into account my views on foreign policy and defence.

    Yep bring it on, sounds good to me

    Of course like all pragmatic measures a bit of a sticking plaster, as I have said before I think we need the whole of tax, company and employment law to distinguish between local businesses and massive, especially foreign, ones and to favour the former. They shouldn't be thought of as both the same type of entity at all

    Yeah ikr. The website is owned by Glenys Kinnock which no doubt provides some of the answer. And many of the questions are totally bizarre like the astrology one

    I'd say communist party, but that's a tad too harsh to just throw it out like this .
    But if I would have to vote for a 'standard' party, it would be lib dems, just for the sake of people, I guess

    "While the former (top left) involves state-imposed arbitrary collectivism in the extreme top left, on the extreme bottom left is voluntary collectivism at regional level, with no state involved. Hundreds of such anarchist communities exisited in Spain during the civil war period."

    The_Mighty_Bush , that's the difference between the Leninist vanguard leading the proles through a dictatorship as apposed to the proles self organizing and doing it themselves. No one likes proles doing things for themselves, on the left and right. The authoritarians of both sides are indistinguishable in how they react to self organizing proles. Stalin (far left), National Socialists like Franco and Pinochet (far right) would all attack any outbreak of syndicalism.
    The self image is of George Orwell during his "Homage to Catalonia" period.

    The reality? A bonkers hippy.

    I am on the line between auth/libtard and two ticks further right than you. And yet, people call me authoritarian and out of touch. What gives?

    That image was gear (I'm +6, +2). But it mainly comes down to perception, how an argument is phrased and that despite being extremely capitalist in principle, I'm a pragmatist who in practice is willing to put forward diluted ideas (no good believing in the abolition of planning objection if I'd be burnt at the stake 5 minutes after doing it). Some people also come across as being blind to any party but their own.

    So you personally I can't answer for but that's some reasons as to why I'm praised for being the acceptable face of the right while others are heralded as gun totting tea party types.

    I don't have an ideology, though. Conservatism isn't an ideology. There's no dogma involved, only strive to make things work and limit government power to increase freedom for all. How these are controversial aims I don't know. People who are supposedly less authoritarian than me (usually far left libertarian) who demand censorship and want to infantalise everybody.

    Also, did you hear they invented a treatment for racism and religion now? The treatment literally gives you brain damage and turns you in to a liberal... I lol'd
