    I got 55% Labour and 53% with Greens, probably going to end up begrudgingly voting labour. Although I'd much rather the Greens.

    Guess I should move to Scotland then?!

    I probably will be voting Green as I live in the Caroline Lucas constituency and I think she's pretty awesome.

    Mine was really similar to yours! Didn't expect SNP to come out on top. Sinn Fein second and then Plaid Cymru. Maybe I should move anywhere in the UK aside from England? :laugh:

    I'll be voting Green (Caroline Lucas); I think my Green % was reduced a bit as I'm not anti-nuclear / anti-gm etc.

    I remember doing this about the time of the last election and getting like 96% Green. I wonder what changed? Does the poll only have one possible answer for each party because there's a few answers that are very similar for a lot of the questions? Also I'm pretty sure I'm more left wing in ideology than what the "idology" section claims. The liberal/authoritarian scale is probably fair though.

    It put me near exact centrist, which surprised me.

    Can anyone pick out anything deeper in this, in terms of political ideas, from my results-

    Green, SNP, Sinn Fein - Science

    Virtually all besides the mainstream parties-Transport.

    Lib Dems and Greens on Crime.

    BNP and UKIP on national security.

    For example how can I be ultra left on crime but ultra right on national security?

    What political philosophy would that tie in with?

    I'm hitting high 70%s with regional parties that I can't vote for! Looks like SNP and Plaid to me lol.

    Other than that I'm:

    Greens 70%
    Labour 64%
    Lib Dem 62%

    Everything else is 40% or below.

    The left/right spectrum only refers to your economic stance or how much you think the government should "interfere" in markets. There does happen to be a traditional link between left wing/liberalism and right wing/authoritarian philosophy which can lead to the confusion. It's probably right when it says you're a centrist. Transport policies of the parties don't link into an ideology well. Your science views probably indicate that you think global warming is a problem that the government should be taking more action to combat ect. You're more liberal on crime but think immigration and/or terrorism is a problem thus leading to a more authoritarian approach.
