    Economic Left/Right: -9.25
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.05

    The left/right is as I expected but I'm surprised with how high the libertarian/authoritarian axis is. I've done this before like 6 months ago and got -9.5,-9.5, I think since then I've become a little more communisty in terms of level of state control and a little less anarchisty/libertariany.

    Some of the questions are a bit silly in this test though so I think it could be better - like why is whether you think astrology is real relevant to your political views? And that questions that says "A benefit of a one party state is that it avoids all of the arguments of democracy that slow everything down" - Yes, of course that's a benefit. That doesn't mean a one party state is good though, it just has that one benefit.

    Also Aph I seem to have almost the exact same result as you

    It's nice to see that you really are left-wing.

    Without them labour would be empty and would die and without a brand name leftist party the right would dominate.

    But I agree with you.

    Green party has always been left wing though. I consider myself to be Marxist but the results obviously don't reflect my beliefs sadly.

    Consider me a traditional Labour member( I believe in collectivism, state ownership etc)

    TSR Labour territory=/= Labour territory, Labour is only there when it doesn't want electing.

    Electing, he's saying you are unelectable.
