    I've just done the survey doofer, and it's a 4 way tie between the Conservatives, UKIP, The Liberal Democrats and The British National Party .

    I think it this survey showed off two things really well. 1) No political party has got all the right answers. Each seem to have one or two credible ideas. 2) The mainstream partys are almost too similar on the authoritarian right.

    Just hardens my believe that we are in desperate need of a hung parliment to shake the system up a bit.

    Your Personal Survey Results - Vote for Policies - Vote for policies, not personalities!

    50/50 CON/UKIP

    Crime (CON), Economy (UKIP), Europe (CON), Immigration (UKIP)

    Sounds perfect, both parties would have my support if I could.

    I personally go for option 2 there - a vote for a lesser party with good policies won't get that party elected, but it will show the growing level of support for policies such as theirs, especially applicable if you're a tree-hugger, as a growing Green vote shows Lab and Cons that environmental matters are important, so hopefully they might adjust their own policies slightly to reflect this.

    How about every party would submit a different candidate and we go at the vote again? I believe the South African elections had this option included...

    whats the point of voting? They ALL promise the world, then when they get into power they never deliver, and they don't incur any penalties for non-delivery.

    They're a bit like teachers, never lived and not living in the real world.

    I'm finding the green party - in'tree'ging (). I used to think of them as tree huggers. But they actually have a lot of well rounded social/liberal policies in other areas - Economy, Europe, Crime, etc. I came out at around 50% Green and I think that was all on non environement related policies. With a better, fairer, voting system parties like Green (and for others UKIP, BNP, etc) might actually be worth voting for.

    75% Green Party and 25% Lib Dem - however, the 25% part is the one area I see as most important, so would confirm my existing choice to vote Lib Dem.

    This makes me think that the system someone described to me a while back should be implemented - namely 'Fluid Democracy'. Where we nominate someone on a list of issues, and then they nominate people on a list of issues, until it gets to a point where one person has a majority of the votes in a particular area. Sure, this is logistically difficult, but there's no reason why it couldn't be implemented somehow. It'd mean people who know about the issues get into power.
