    So basically I'd describe myself as a right wing libertarian, (not an anarcho-capitalist mind, that's too extreme for me) I'm an economic liberal who strongly believes in the free market and wanted to remain in the EU because of this. Socially I support some degree of statism with regards to crime and, to a lesser extent, immigration reform , I fully support abortion and euthanasia, believe in the abolition of the House of Lords in favour of an elected senate (but support the monarchy), I think the UK should move to a more federal system of government to preserve the union. In terms of foreign policy I'm mostly a non-interventionist with a few exceptions (I support intervention in Syria for humanitarian reasons) I think trade unions should have their powers reduced and the junior doctor's strike was morally wrong as it plays with people's lives. If you'd like to know anymore of my views just drop a reply! And of course leave a reply with party suggestions.

    Very similar to my views now essentially, although I'd keep the HoL (apart from the bishops). Don't really care about the monarchy,

    Conservatives are your best bet but if your local candidate is against your views (e.g. Peter Bone) don't be afraid to vote differently

    I have considered the tories actually, being a northerner I'd be a rare one! (Although my MP is actually a tory, Jason McCartney for Colne Valley, for those interested)

    The only thing that puts me off is Theresa May seems to have shifted to the right since coming to power, I don't like that the cons have essentially become UKIP lite with lots of social conservatives in the cabinet.

    My favourite mp would be probably be David Davis, I like that he's pro FOI and supports civil liberties, but he's in the minority as a Tory, most of the party are authoritarian fruitcakes.

    Yeah I'm not a May fan either. She's essentially a less charismatic, anti immigration version if Blair.

    Meh. I don't really care if the government spies on me tbh. Much prefer Dan Hannan to Davis but my favourite MP is Ken Clarke

    Well in America it would be easier as it would be a close match to Gary Johnson and the Libertarian Party. None of the UK parties really match though, you seem close to the views of Douglas Carswell.

    Not an alt-righter, but I acknowledge your love of cuckold pornography.

    Right liberal wing of the conservatives or lib dems. I was going to say the anti union/doctor strike but rules out labour but you could probably find friends on the right of the party as well as "we much crush the working class" to achieve power guys.

    Hello David Cameron.. Enjoying retirement.

    Your a Cameroon and given current leadership you can only really vote Tory or spoil the ballot.

    You also don't sound that libertarian.

    Well, if UKIP undergoes Banks' reforms then you might be sort of suitable for it.

    The only difference is that the libertarian UKIPers perceive the EU as a source of protectionism (being a customs union with common external tariffs), with the alternative being a truly free global trade model, while you regard the EU as an internally liberalised market that's better than a protectionist Britain.

    You sound slightly more right than a Liberal-Conservative i.e Theresa May and I think the Conservative and Unionist Party shares your views the most.

    I'd say your views fall mostly in line with the Conservative party. There are some factions within the conservative party like Conservative way forward who are mostly thatcherite (poisonous word to some) who advocate for free markets and social freedom. I'm not certain that they are in favour of reforming the house of lords but the nature of political parties is they have diverse views among them and the conservatives are some of the most if you look at influences like Macmillan who was very much big state despite also being one nation. There is a libertarian party in the UK but they are very young and therefore have no real bearing on politics nationally. Also, as someone who considers themselves a libertarian, I don't fully agree with everything they say but again comes down to diverse views.

    May I ask why you are asking this question? are you considering joining a party or are you "picking a side" or the one I always used is trying to explain your views to people who may not have the most sound political knowledge

    Theresa May is quickly turning the conservatives into UKIP.

    Davis is good as an outsider when he's ranting about stuff but he's rather useless when expected to do a job.
