    Here's some of my viewpoints:

    .Wanted Brexit

    .Increase in tax on Businesses and Wealthy Families

    .Increase in public spending and nationalisation of services

    .Skeptical on immigration- I believe it's fine when the numbers aren't too high

    .The Workers of the country should be paid more and have a voice

    .Anti-Monarch- Cannot stand the Queen

    . Atheist- Religion causes too much trouble

    . Benefits are valuable but we should regulate it to make sure it's going to the correct people (if you can work, work basically)

    .Support Gay marriage

    .I believe that certain drugs should be legalised but placed under heavy regulations for businesses

    .An Australian Points based system could work, with lenient stances on migration for Refugees and Asylum Seekers

    So... I know it's a long list, but those are some of my viewpoints. Where would you place me politically? What party do I link with? I would vote Labour but what would you think?

    As above, more or less. Unfortunately most of its members strongly disagree with s number of your points. Are they in order of importance? If so maybe ukip.

    Also you should put the motive behind your policies- e.g. Dan Hannan was anti EU for different reasons than Peter Skinner.

    Your a populist national socialist.

    In this country you don't really have any of the big parties to go for however in France you'd be looking at the National Front. Perhaps vote BNP if they are still around in your constituency.

    Hmmm... Interesting. I have a few minor concerns with immigration. Maybe not enough to vote BNP ( I'm not racist)

    Who determines the numbers? who's to say how many workers and at what wage should businesses hire? who will make those decisions if not the millions of businesses themselves?

    You'd vote Labour and you're a centrist.

    Let's find out more..

    You said that you want higher taxes on business and the wealthy and also that you want nationalised public services.

    What would your maximum tax rates be on wealthy individuals?
    What would your maximum tax rates be on business?
    Do you want government to directly control public services like the NHS or do you want a model more like Network Rail?

    I have been very vague. Apologies. I feel the government should have more control over services directly. Tax rate should be increased to 50% and after that the percentage should increment gradually. A similar stance for businesses (I don't know the current corporate tax rate). As you can see from my list, I'm quite left wing apart from the concern of unsustainable migration levels, but my main concern is public spending (not enough is being spent).

    Do you believe in property rights or should resources be owned and distributed communally/by the state?
