Lib Dem, Green and Labour in the sixties. SNP in the fifties. Tories, Sinn Fein, Plaid Cymru and UKIP in the forties. BNP in the thirties (are they still a thing? :dread:)

Going to be voting either Lib Dem or Labour.

Great to see the Green party openly willing to work with Labour and Lib Dems to try to limit Conservative seats as much as possible, I've often thought the left/centre-left has been far too divided to get anywhere in this shitty voting system in recent times. Hopefully voters will think tactically too.

91% SNP. It seems I agree with all of their policies except Scottish nationalism. :lol:

https://uk.isidewith.com/political-quiz

I came out as follows:

64% Conservative
62% SNP
58% Lib Dems
all the others and then waaaaaay down at the bottom of the pile with 40% - Labour :lol:

Despite those scores I think I'll be voting Lib Dems.

How are people getting such close scores between the SNP and the Conservatives?

Are they fighting for Scottish Independence whilst also wanting to starve the disabled? ;)

Stealing this from a chum

The fun part about proposals for tactical voting is that this time the conservatives can't run posters with Ed Milliband in Alec Salmond's pocket. If they did one with Corbyn in Nicola Sturgeon's pocket people would probably think "yeah, that's a better idea".

I'm guessing it's based on the SNP record whilst in government which, from what I understand, hasn't been radically different from the Conservatives.

I was 57% SNP and 57% Labour. Left of centre. Strange really as the political compass test had me quite far to the left alongside the greens. On a basic level I tend to agree with the core principles of the Green Party, but there is something so amateurish about the way they are run and so poor with how they decide and present policy that they would never be a consideration for me.

Compared to what we have now, Ed Milliband in Alec Salmond's pocket sounds a better idea.

That site's pretty bobbins IMO. Very narrow questions and answers. Most I've added my own option.

e.g. "Should the U.K. raise taxes on the rich?" My answer is "Yes, on Capital and Assets"
Every answer relates to income. :fp:

61% SNP
60% PC
58% Tory
57% DUP
56% Lab
55% Lib Dem
54% Green
51% SF
50% UKIP :shifty:
40% BNP :dread:

I'm, 1% more BNP than Tory and 1% more UKIP than BNP.

It's fun that I have to go all the way down to my 5th party to find someone who stands a chance in my seat.

I had a good chuckle reading about the fall of the BNP last night. It all seemed like it fell apart after Griffin went on Question Time. That was a great decision to put him on in retrospect, it shone a light on just how slimy he was.
