There seems to be no UK party which represents this sort of politics.

I definitely do, for the most part, I'm not sure supporting marijuana legalisation is socially conservative though

Hmm..
Marijuana legalisation seems to be a liberal idea, however one idea does not change your political affiliation as a whole.
Are you opposed to ideas such as abortion and same sex marriage?

I don't think such authoritarianism is very common. I imagine most people who fit those characteristics would be "third positionists" and perhaps not even support electoral democracy.

For the most part, yes, if only for religious reasons, with maybe abortion in the case of a rape or if the fetus endangers it's mothers life being the only exception

Individuals who're economically left-wing and socially conservative could fit in Labour.

No it's not but conservatives do and have supported drug legalisation - William Buckley being the most renowned conservative to do so -- I'd think.

You are right, but Labour is not inherently a socially conservative party.

Not really. They'd be seen as scum if they so much dared say anything negative about gay marriage or even abortion for example. They'd fit far more in the Conservatives. It's not like they're the free-market party anymore.

I think I'm economically conservative and socially liberal, but I no longer feel that there is any party that represents this view either, politics is becoming so polarised now.

Yep, that's true as well, there is no Libertarian type party in the UK either.

There is, it's just very small. One of my friends is a member of it but the MP candidates who sat in the 2017 GE barely received over 50 votes in their constituencies.

I am the inverse of your socioeconomic and political beliefs. I am fiscally/ economically conservative and socially liberal.

National Socialists are despised by Momentum and the soft left as part of the post-Soviet relativism that allows them to claim 'x was not a real socialist'.

National Socialists don't really have a home in the UK outside the BNP.
