I just tried this For Policies Not Personalities to help me make my mind up who to vote for...i am leaning towards Liberal- but am not sure they are really ready to govern...as in would they themselves be a bit shocked if they won....
however...that is my only worry about voting Liberal....
I So i did this test! And i was shocked.... Yes, it confirmed my thoughts about voting Liberal...so thats good....but it also indicated GREEN and BNP as my alternatives!!!
But i am horrified that it suggested BNP... as i would have said i was their worst fan.
Anyone else had a shock???
On some other thread there was a site where one could see which policies (and thus which parties) one agreed with. Like you, I was a bit shocked that one of my choices was a statement from UKIP.
However, listening on FiveLive today they had a piece where the BNP manifesto was unveiled and where some parties have suggested savings of 15 billion, the BNP claimed they had found 30 billion, so I'll leave it to some economists to highlight whether it is possible or just pipe-dreams.
I got green also,& liberal but just wish people would be brave enough to actually vote for the policies they believe in rather than say its a wasted vote, then things may actually get better?
Your link takes me to the 2015 survey. They are offering to send me an email when the 2017 one is ready.
Can you link to the other thread, WebDude?
