Political Compass Analysis - AphWatch
As can be seen by this graph the house is according to Political compass center left and mildly liberal. this is to be expected on a student website.
furthermore the ellipses represent deviation from the mean in both directions. as can be seen this suggests that there are 3 outliers on the left-liberal side
- Jammy Duel
- Unown Uzer
- Nigel Farrage MEP
The Liberals are aptly named as they have no liberal members. Their former Chair itsdancross is almost on the parties center so in this measure at least he would be a good leader for them. However Jarred is the closest active member to their political center so is still, at least in PC terms a good leader.
the liberals have 2 outliers
Labour is a moderately liberal left wing party. Their leader RayApparently is very close to their political center so that is a testament to his ability to lead.
Labour seem to be split into 3 factions being: The Socialists, The Social Democrats and anon. This could lead to tensions in the party as each group wants different things but time will only tell how this dynamic plays out.
Anon_98 is an extremist within labour.
UKIP as a party seems to be, at least from Political compass results, a ragtag bunch of political misfits brought together by a mutual hatred of the European Union. I can see no distinct groupings to PC results. Their newest member and MP Duncs11 is closest to their political center and indeed their leader and DL are the 2 most furthest away from that center which is an interesting dynamic. They have no outliers
The Tories are according to their PC result a little bit liberal but by shear numbers are more authoritarian. Krollo is the only outlier with thehistorybore just within the second circle. Mobbsy their DL is closest to their political center. there is a clear grouping just above the x-axis but other then that most other results are singular.
The greens are the second biggest party economically. They have a strange situation where most of their members are out of their 'moderate zone' They are also the party who's center has moved the most in the last 6 months becoming much more authoritarian and right-wing. Miser is by far the closest to their political center.
The Socialists as is perhaps to be expected are the least economically diverse party. once again the only have one member in their 'moderate zone', DaveSmith99 but as they have no leader this doesn't matter much.
Comparison of party centers
In the above graphic (0,0) is the house center and all other averages have been adjusted accordingly.
We can see a few things from the above, firstly that economically, Labour and the Greens are almost identical to a statistically insignificant amount but the greens are almost a point more liberal then labour. We can also see that compared to the rest of the house the liberals are a mildly-liberal, center-left party and that the Socialists are the most extreme part in house terms.
and the final part of my analysis is this what I think the house would look like if we were arranged by our PC results.
As the above graphic shows I see 8 uniquely distinct groups in our results along with 2 independents. They are as follows
- Stiff Little Fingers
- James Millibanter
- Saracen's Fez
- Little Toy Gun
- The financier
- Unown Uzer
- Nigel Farage MEP
- Jammy Duel
Birchington could this either be in todays update or merged with the other thread at your leisure. Thank you.
The Libertarian cluster is rather strange. Either those two individuals on the right should be independent or the Conservative and ‘Progressive’ cluster should be the same.
Also I think it's the first time ever I can say: “Thanks, Aph, nice work.”
Not sure being close to the party mean is a reflection of leadership ability though. Leadership is much more about managing people in here than churning out ideas that nobody in your party disagrees with.
The Tory graphics not working for me though.
