My results indicated that "Third Way" was my closest alignment, Karl - should this sector be included in this summary? Or maybe it's included in one of the existing headings?

IIRC all the votes I counted for "Centrism" were "Third Way". I didn't rename it deliberately, I just wrote out some categories in advance so we could get descriptive groupings, and it kind of ended up that way.

If you feel like it's not a fair categorisation then I can rename it?

Hey, Karl, that's all good. I was just conscious that I'd seen "Third Way" cropping up a bit and then I hadn't noticed it in the summary. Personally I'm okay with the term "Centrism" but I just wonder if it may be better to stick with the group names reported in the results rather than re-naming them?

Edit: But now I've noticed that you've grouped a range of results categories together and I can understand why. All cool!

Ugh, Degenerate Neighbour Bloke's being a dick again!

*calls secret police*

Muahahahaha!

I'd tread extremely carefully if I were you. Stool Bloke is the bookies' current favourite to take the reins at the new GRcade political party.


Not if he gets grassed up too.

I'll follow the advice on a poster which said 'become a govt informer, betray your family & friends, fabulous prizes to be won'

Once dobbed in, they'll soon be on the run from the fascist police with a murderer, a mass murderer, and a man in a bright nylon shirt!
