How important are political views in your friendships?Watch
Of course, there does have to be some shared values and basic standards of sane behaviour.
I wouldn't be keen on having much to do with anyone that were supporters/members/funders for any prescribed organisations or organised crime gangs.
Nor members or financial backers of: AB, BF, BFP, DYR, EKP, KT, KKK, ONA, PA, WBC.
It all depends on how strong people's views are.
The vast majority of times, people that make a couple have the
same political/life views along with how strong their views are.
You are never going to get an extreme leftist coupling up with an opposite view.
It is only important if it is important to you and if the other person no likey, then
you will no longer be a couple.
Personally, yes. I'm pretty left wing and I absolutely cannot understand how some people are able to argue against raising taxes when we have a 20% child poverty rate in this country - imo your political opinions say a lot about you: i can tell what your priorities are, and from that i can decide whether you are the kind of person i want to spend time with or not
also, someone who is centre right "for the economy" and votes conservative imo is just missing the point, or people who choose not to vote because they "dont like corbyn"... there are far larger things at stake and i think stupid to ignore them
