It's a lot harder to categorise people in political camps just now as a lot of cross-pollination has occurred.
Opposing the EU for example wouldn't prohibit you from hitching your wagon to either the Conservatives or Labour just now.

I think that if the parties were really honest, they would need to admit that at their extreme borders, some MPs ideologies are more easily aligned with opposing parties but for purely political reasons, they happen to be their colleagues and not their adversaries.

most of these things have nothing to do with the way you vote. you won't find political correctness, racism, death penalty, or individualism on any party's manifesto and the other half fall into both sides of the political fence (pedophila?). what do you want out of Brexit? do you agree with plan (if there is one)?

Rather than a classical liberal, you might be more radical than that and be a Libertarian, an American type anyway. It depends on what you see as legitimate roles of government ( Classical liberals tend to not be as pedantic ) and American libertarians tend to want more control over immigration than most Classical liberals I’ve met

Classical liberal is a form libertarianism?

I think you are squarely in the right of the political spectrum.
Probably conservative.

Some of the combinations are a bit unusual.
E.g pro life, support for the death penalty and anti-war.

Well not usual as David Cameron who hates the homeless, poor people and the disabled but he loves refugees, Muslims and wind farms.

As David Cameron said he- was "unionist", a "liberal conservative" and "one nation conservative".
I wonder what Mrs Thatcher really thought of him.

More like a socialist-conservative and he’s very politically correct. David Cameron’s university professor described him as “compassionate and sensible conservative” I wonder what he meant by that?

well you don't usually expect a caring and compassion nature to go along with capitalists who put economic "strength" above its vulnerable people - some would say it's not even possible. and as for the "sensible" part, maybe he means compared to other tory toffs he didnt lark around doing crazy antics..but we know he did - bullingdon, pig story, black prostitutes...

He probably meant he wasn't one of those rabid lunatics who dominated the party in the late 90s (also arguably now as well).
