I wonder if it's something to do with the technical mind that we're mostly on the left? I've always known I'd have been a hippy if I were around in the 60's

Seems about right, apart from kids/staff who damage laptops ......... I'd be top right if there were questions about them!!!

You seem a little authoritarian for our liking around these here parts, but you're still on the left there. 'Tis true - no right wing, neo-nazi, uber-conservative techies....

a hung parliament to me, actually means more of the same and more indecision. so i don't see how it's supposedly good for the country. unless you like what you see.....

Certainly the first to own up that you can't read a graph :-)

Maybe we are just all deluding ourselves and the site is actually rigged not to show anything on the "other" side to the left.

The thing is, our political views may not actually match up with our voting records... When you've got a choice between 2 right wing parties and 1 left wing but (what some say is) hopeless party, you don't really have much choice!

Just to quash that theory, quickly going through and answering questions completely opposite to my actual beliefs gives this result (quite close to Hitler on the example graph):

True, but how do we know the left wing party will be hopeless unless we give them a chance? Seriously they can't do much worse than the two right wing parties have done over the last 30 years? Can they? Maybe a hung parlament will give them a chance to shine through. Either that or we're all doomed and I'll finely give up my nieve believe in the political system once and for all.

Oh, I know, I will be voting for Lib Dem as always. I don't buy into the 'wasted vote' nonsense - I was just pointing out what the general view seems to be.
