Am I a green eurosceptic Tory?

Doctor Vee isn't surprised to find out that he supports the LibDems.

I took the test with this result:

Who Should You Vote For?

Who should I vote for?

Labour -22
Conservative 47
Liberal Democrat -50
UK Independence Party 46
Green 31

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.

Take the test at Who Should You Vote For

I imagine the strong showing for the Greens is the result of my supporting road pricing, being against ID cards and in favour of drug liberalisation. The high UKIP score is self-explanatory and the Conservative percentage is presumably driven by EU and tax considerations. The test confirms that the "Liberal" Democrats are not exactly liberal: no surprise there. Stuart will be unhappy at the absence of an SNP option but support for independence is compatible with all combinations of the policy options offered.

I got 3 on Green over 50 Tory and quite high for 20.

Mais non!

My preferred political party is missing from the possible options, but I took the test anyway.

Allegedly, if the SNP were not standing, I should vote Green. Bleugh... !

Thank heavens...

I got poor results for all parties, which illustrates just how illiberal the modern parties are (Tory 27 was my highest).

I'm a 59 Tory 3 Green so does that mean I should really be thinking to the right of Atilla the Hun? Hmm.

-"in Edinburgh South, the Liberals claim to be in second place to Nigel Griffiths, Labour"

From all the data and info I've received, that is true.

Both Baxter and Denver et al judge the LD's to be a clear 2nd place to Labour.

My test results are torn between UKIP and Tory. However in Edinburgh South, the Liberals claim to be in second place to Nigel Griffiths, Labour. If true, then I may even vote Liberal.
