    Well it's all good to be in the company of Nelson Mandela and the Dali Lama - isn't it?

    Although I did feel some of the questions were a little misleading, and agree with Dos_box that their should be a "neutral" answer to each of them, my results surprised me completely.

    The website FAQ states their reasoning for not having a "none" options:

    This makes it too easy for people to duck difficult issues. By forcing people to take a positive or negative stance, the propositions make people really evaluate their feelings. Often people find they wanted to select 'don't know' mainly because they'd never really thought about the idea.

    I ended up in that corner of the graph too.

    I actually think a hung parliament could be a good thing for the country at the moment. But as a floating voter, I've emailed the three main parties' candidates in my constituency asking for their thoughts on a particular local issue and hinting that a commitment to resolving the issue might help to secure my X in their box on polling day. I worded it as "would you be prepared to make an election commitment to facilitate a dialogue between [various organisations]", so I'm not asking them to commit to anything too heavy, just to raise the issue and get people talking.

    I sent that on Saturday, only had a reply from the Labour candidate so far, promising to look into it and get back to me.

    Gordon Brown - as in the Labour Party - are further right than I'd expected. Is he a Tory in descise?

    Disguise? If so its a thinly veiled one, Gordon is practically a Thatcherite!

    Well I am not surprised at this


    But as I don't feel any party reflects my views I am really not sure who to vote for this time.

    Oh and I also feel that I am getting more disenchanted with whole political system as I get older...perhaps we need a new system where we all vote directly on political matters...

    Ant n Dec hosting a live Saturday night referendum show anybody?

    Which is why it's so funny when people are so desperate to get rid of him and bring in a Conservative government - there's really not much difference between many of this government's policies and those which the Tories want (although, of course, as politicians they can't say that because they have to pretend that they are totally different!)
