Subverting the meme...


Who Should You Vote For?

Who should I vote for?

Your expected outcome:

Conservative


Your actual outcome:



Labour 0
Conservative 93
Liberal Democrat -126
UK Independence Party 24
Green -84


You should vote: Conservative

The Conservative Party is strongly against joining the Euro and against greater use of taxation to fund public services. The party broadly supported the Iraq war and backs greater policing and ID cards. The Tories are against increasing the minimum wage above the rate of inflation, and have committed to abolishing university tuition fees. They support 'virtual vouchers' for private education.

So that's OK then.

Of course, if I do it the right way round I get this

Who should I vote for?

Your expected outcome:

Liberal Democrat


Your actual outcome:



Labour -16
Conservative -14
Liberal Democrat 42
UK Independence Party 21
Green 28


You should vote: Liberal Democrat

The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places, but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather than ownership.

Odd that I get such high UKIP scores, as I clicked neutral on all the europe questions (due to really not knowing)

*frowns at meme* is it me, or is that meme heavily biased towards the economic left?

I don't know, but ticking "strongly agree" with all the main planks of the Conservative manifesto brought me out as UKIP.

Think it might be in need of a few corrections...

yesyesyes. It read as being written by a Liberal Democrat to me.

And it puts me as ukip (see below) when I cannot stand them, seeing them as little better than the BNP.

Maybe we should have a reverse election - who one would definitely not want to run the country

Why did you get pretty much the same score for UKIP when you reversed your politics completely?

Weird.

Because the scoring system has a lot of blanks for UKIP, where they have no published policy on the matter. So if you tick neutral to the right questions you become 100% in line with their policy, as perceived by the test makers. :)

Neutral on everthing scores zero on everyone for me.

'The right questions'!= 'all the questions'. They do believe in something.

Sorry. Erm. I meant "I did the test, and answered every question neutral. I got a score of 0 for each party."

All my comprehensibility is being saved for the thesis, you see...

Does checking the neutral button bias you towards one party or another do you think?

The questionnaire was biased. Some of the questions were really rather loaded, you know.

I'd comment that we're seeing a lot of Liberal Democrat, except that we seem to be a lot of Liberal Democrats, if you see what I mean ;-).
