You would not have voted Labour in 1983, given your views.

Probably would have stayed at home given the choices you got in 1983. A pro-privatisation conservative party or a hard left socialist party.

Sort of important to remember that you vote for a candidate in your constituency, not for a party, as such - which can make things complicated. There were quite a few Labour candidates in 1983 who Ben would (presumably) have no problem voting for, while others...

No. He supports limiting the timespan for abortions, as Thatcher did in the late 1980s (lowering it from 28 weeks to 24 weeks) but no, he isn't pro-life. Very few UK politicians are, except those in fringe theocratic or far-right parties.

That doesn't really make sense, as UKIP doesn't run candidates in Northern Ireland and SF doesn't run candidates in Britain. The Conservatives did run candidates in Northern Ireland, but they were unionist and anti-nationalist.
