    I have always believed to be a Conservative supporter, but having re-evaluated my beliefs I find myself extremely right-wing economically, but sway to the left slightly regarding the social scale.

    What party fits best my beliefs?

    Thanks

    edit: how "extreme right" are your economic beliefs?

    Well, I believe totally in Free Markets and as little governmental intervention as possible. I believe in as little bureacracy as is possible, and lower taxes when possible. A flat tax scheme would suit me.

    Think about it; a single mother, two jobs, two kids, paying the same amout of tax as a "fat cat," who, to him, tax is pocket money.

    I don't believe in the 50% tax for over £150k earners. They earnt it, so the G'ment shouldnt be taking half their money, but certainly more then < £15k earners, for example

    If the main parties are your thing, theres a number of 'Progressive' conservatives who do believe in freemarkets, but also government intervention but they're a lot dogmatic and more pragmatic than Labour.

    True, In hindsight my post was rather misguided!

    Where do the Torys differ to Labour regarding Immigration policy?

    I look at the websites, but find them all too much one-sided propaganda! :cool:

    With regards to immigration, i think the Tories will cap non EU immigration probably by 50% or something. That would only cut it by like 25% in total anyway, so they wouldn't cut it that much.

    What exactly do you mean by social standing? I think David Cameron does generally believe in social mobility, he's certainly stated that in a lot of speeches he's given. But i think in terms of social issues the Tories will maintain the status quo in a lot of areas. Perhaps tax breaks for families though or something like that.

    If i iz not b mistaken, labour are a lot more open to immigration, while a conservative viewpoint is to constrict it more.

    Tbh, and I dont wanna kill your interest in politics, they say all this stuff to get votes, when they know its not economically/morally/socially viable. They try and get everyone possible on there side with empty promises with no intention of them being fulfilled, so tbf, it doesnt matter whether its labour, or tory, or anyting else, its all the same!




    Cept BNP...dont vote BNP...

    Yeah I do realise that. I'm simply talking about political philosophy and not practicality.

    Plus, I'd never vote for BNP, but I would definitely vote for them before voting Gordon Brown and his dispicable ''cabinet'', Harriet Harman in particular, back into power! :cool:

    It was really about Conservatives vs Lib Dems.

    But I really have very little knowledge of the Lib Dem's main policies, unless someone would be kind enough to fill me in...
