I’d honestly say I’m bang in the middle. If I had to though, I would lean slightly left

Socially very left wing, although, economically I'd say I'm quite right wing. Guess that makes me center, maybe slightly more left or slightly more right depending on whether you think social policies are more important or economic.

I despise this kind of categorisation. Maybe this ill will is a product birthed from ignorance, or, perhaps, it is the sum of appreciating the differences in life and struggling to improve by rigorously trying different things.

‘Socially left wing’ usually means liberal views on abortion, gay rights etc. Personally, I don’t like the term socially left wing as I consider myself a liberal and right wing and I think that liberal views does in fact coincide with the views of the typical right wing person (freedom to do whatever you like).

Left but I have no prejudices against markets and "bad" words like so many on the left have. I support free speech and I don't think markets are the devil.

I'm as left wing as Ryan Giggs on a miners strike. Socially very liberal and capitalism without socialism is an inherently doomed system, which will eat itself as it prices the consumer base out of purchasing anything.

Ah great answer. Yeah I think its a bad term as well and I think liberal views coincide with the right wing as well.

I think liberal vs conservative means very little in this country nowadays as all the main parties are basically on the same side in this aspect. Equally someone can identify on the 'left' but since the centre leans to the right anyway you can still be on the right even if you are slightly left of centre.

Therefore I only know someone's stance if they identify as right wing, but simply leaning to the left or identifying as liberal tells me very little.

I hate to be that guy (...ah, who am I kidding, I love to be that guy!) but did you know socialism and capitalism are mutually exclusive and diametrically opposite? Your preference for heavily regulated capitalism - the "left wing of capitalism" - is fine, but it cannot be categorised as "with socialism." Social democracy, at most. You can't reconcile capitalism's private ownership of the means of production with socialism's common ownership of the MoP. It's one or t'other, and using the terms inappropriately is what leads to confusion, eg. calling people like Corbyn various shades of "socialist" to "communist" via "Marxist," when he is in fact a neo-Keynesian SocDem.

If you're going to be "that guy", maybe try learning about market socialism, or the difference between the state and workers for that matter, rather than labouring under the misapprehension that socialism = communism :yy:
