Interesting site. I'm 84% snp, 81% lib democrat. Apparently I'm so closely aligned with Scotland as a whole i should consider running for office 8)

Was wondering which of those to vote for before as well. Think I'll prob lean Ĺib Dem.

70% Lab and 70% Lib Dems.

Probably go with Labour. Nice and safe. Like Kabul.

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:

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.
