I’ve got interested in potlitics like last year so I’m still a beginner with still a lot to learn but I’ll share my ideologies and I’d like you tell me where I’d be on the political compass as what should I call myself (e.g. socialist, liberal moderate, libertarian, conservative etc)

I'm pro: Brexit, free speech, intercial marriages, same sex marriages, same sex couples to adopt, gender equality, disability rights, life, gun control, strict borders, putting our own people first

Anti: political correctness, open borders, refugees, Islam, abortions, modern feminism, gender pronouns, antifa, fascism, cutting down disability/pensioner benefits, fox hunting, sharia law, bedroom tax and putting immigrants before their own people

Based on your post it feels like you get most of your politics from American sources cause you focus a lot on american style culture war esque stuff which doesn't really appear much in British politics.

Pretty much the entirety of your positions are based on social issues which in reality have very little to do with actual politics more just click bait American youtube videos obsessed with Islam and "political correctness".

So I don't really know where to put you in the context of British politics since the major divide is on the economy, but based on your general cultural attitude your clearly more aligned with the Conservatives or Ukip (but again that's just a general impression based on your attitude, it's perfectly possible, for example to be pro brexit and anti Islam and be a socialist.)

There's relatively little there on economics. But sounds thereabouts similar to my positions (though I wouldn't call myself entirely anti-Islam), and I place pretty much in the middle of the political spectrum.

I'm fine with Islam provided it doesn't spread into the political system or attempt to dominate other aspects of our culture. Which is a f8*ing tall order it seems. Inevitably where you have constituencies whose majority population is Islamic, they'll opt to elect politicians that represent their beliefs.

I just get frustrated when people define their politics by such stupid things like "opposition to political correctness" or the converse "anti racism" cause it's so meaningless. Saying your in the "middle of the political spectrum" is also a bit of a non starter for me as it depends on what political spectrum your talking about, and the pundit class often use it in a different way to how most people understand it, which means saying your a "centrist" really doesn't mean much.

It could mean how pundits use it which is economically right wing and socially and culturally liberal (e.g David Cameron Emanuel Macron, Nick Clegg, Hillary Clinton) or it could just be someone who defines their politics as being "in the middle" which to me isn't really politics at all.

I don’t understand anything about comics and I’ve tried taking the test but I don’t understand a lot of questions since I’m very new getting into politics. I endorse people like Anne-Maire Walters and Tommy Robinson if that helps. I was never a Tory supports but I used to support Labour

oh i understand. well you don't need to commit yourself to one part of the spectrum (although you're probably just asking out of curiosity?) you're young -- be an independent. if you have a chat with your mates, just tell them your stance, no need to label yourself. although since you're pro-Brexit i think you'd be hard-pressed to find a Liberal who thinks you're on their side. you may/may-not get into a fight about that one.

Do you mind me asking why you used to be a labour supporter? And why you no longer are?
