    Wow UU. That's very...centre
    The last time I did it, a few months ago, I also straddled the left/right border, but was on the libertarian side. Fun fact: I have never gone out of the (±1,±1) area and have never been in the purple area. And when I first joined TSR UKIP, I was in the green area.

    In addition to this why did you join UKIP when you were in the green area?

    I disagree with Labour a lot. If you look at my other post a few pages ago with the iSideWith results, you'll see that Labour is quite far down, and for each country's result I get a right-wing/nationalist party/candidate. iSideWith is much more accurate than political compass.

    Ok fair enough , I don't think this compass is very accurate, it just puts every party in the top right section

    As I have said, the political compass is quite strongly biased and will make you seem more leftist and libertarian than you really are, so if the political compass were accurate, I would be in the blue square. Furthermore, based on policies, I agree with UKIP much more than the other parties.

    I think it is actually trying to get people to vote for leftist parties by making the test takers seem more leftist and libertarian, whilst making the parties seem much more right-wing and authoritarian than they really are. Additionally, a lot of the questions are worded very poorly and attempts to get you to give a response they like.

    I see; I understand the compass is quite biased but it is interesting as nigel and most of the conservatives are still in the blue area.

    Yes but it puts labour in the top right quadrant and the lib dems , its just unrealistic.

    I can't argue with that, but on a TSR basis I'd say it's relatively accurate

    I probably am not as right-wing as them. I consider myself to be neither left nor right, but a patriot, as Marine Le Pen says, but I am nowhere near as left-wing as her. The political compass also does not use a comprehensive enough sample size to determine the libertarian/authoritarian stance, given that on the some of the more common social issues, I lean more liberal (probably because I'm a strong advocate for secularism), but I support things like eugenics, scrapping the Human Rights Act, I am strongly opposed to the extreme political correctness of this country, and am in some regards much more culturally conservative (e.g. being strongly against drugs, including cigarettes and alcohol, as well as deviant sexual behaviour), nationalistic and authoritarian than pretty much everyone in this House.

    Well with a response like that it is no surprise you are leader of TSR UKIP, although as you can tell from my liberal party membership we disagree on a lot

    Out of interest do you hate non-white people?
    Do you think we should only take skilled immigration?

    I don't hate non-white people, I'm non-white myself, I just hate the way they don't integrate, and stick to their own cultures.

    Some of them. Its funny how people complain about the burkini ban but we have to abide by Islam law in Dubai, Saudi Arabia, its hypocritical.
    I also think political correctness has gone too far, you can't say anything against a religion etc. without be labelled racist, homophobic, xenophobic.
    I am also non white but I am secular and hate PC

    I think if you live in this country you should follow the law, adopt the culture, speak the language. If they want to keep their culture, they should do it privately inside their own home.
