Right-wing. Liberals these days are dumb nutjobs.

Everyone on TSR is right wing.
Incorrect. If we were to run a poll site wise, much like was done throughout the GE, you'll see Labour absolutely miles ahead of everyone else. See here as an example: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4738372 Essentially, you're conflating a very vocal minority of right wingers with a vast silent majority the other way.

As for me, centre-left.

Centralist because being solely left or right is dumb.

Pretty much central. I'm pretty right wing when it comes to immigration, and left wing when it comes to looking after the underprivileged and disabled citizens of Britain.

You were spek'd as a liberal. You support a balance of both economic freedom and restriction alongside light restrictions on cultural freedom. You oppose economic deregulation and any reduction in taxes. Guess it's right since I'm a Lib Dem.

Fake news. There are many, many leftists and supporters of the Socialist: Jeremy Corbyn.
True, but they don't tend to debate that much in Debate and Current Affairs. I could not tell you a single regular Corbynite posting in this sub. For right wing though I'd have a plethora.

it's hard to say.
in many social issues I tend to be quite left wing but in moral issues I'm quite traditional so far more right wing

Wrong - the vast majority of students are mindless left-wing sheep.
Ha the left are a lot more open-minded than 'we believe everything the media tells us to believe' right-wing morons. So definitely not mindless. Nice try though

Because they know they would get torn apart in an actual debate. So they keep their deluded thoughts to themselves.

Centre-right. I'm socially liberal and fiscally conservative, i.e. libertarian. Of sorts. But I dislike the label 'cos to many people it means minarchist (meaning, government's sole purpose is to provide police, army, courts and almost nothing else). I favour a lot of gov. interference so I ain't a minarchist at all but my views are within the broader libertarian camp. Classical liberal is spot on but you can't use it in the UK/US without creating confusion.

I'm sure you're capable of articulating your point without insulting an entire side of the political spectrum in every post. It doesn't add anything to your point in the slightest.

Are you referring to the word 'deluded', which you take as an insult? It's a fitting adjective and if it hurts you so much, act like it's not there. That sentence still makes sense without the word 'deluded in it, so read the rest of it and take it in.

Deluded, dumb nutjobs. Whilst it's not offensive it's rather boring to see.

being socially liberal isn't "left wing" though. you're right wing. you're a libertarian, like me (very right wing). in fact, in my opinion, being socially liberal is appeal to right wing values of individualism/freedom.

Ok fair enough on the dumb nutjobs, but deluded is a fitting adjective, not an insult.

I would consider myself very left on social issues but much more moderate for economic issues. That being said I'd vote Labour without any hesitation

I said centre-right, I don't think I mentioned the word "left-wing" at all 'cos I am very far from being one (thank the Lord).

I place myself in the centre-right rather than in the right-wing 'cos I'm in favour of loose immigration and all sorts of things which would cause multiple strokes to those who identify as right-wing (as it might be obvious from the responses in this thread).
