It would probably put you to the right of the BNP. Tongue

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

The Political Compass is a total joke. Read the text below the various charts. They're basically awful Chomskyite leftists who think Dennis Kucinich is a Great Man and that the world is run by Je-- --international bankers.

The world is becoming globalized, but cosmopolitanism is being hijacked by the Davos Man. What choice is left besides nationalism? The thought is terrifying, to be honest.

I just hope Trump doesn't turn into some kind of Berlusconi-esque Teflon man.

It gets interesting when you compare their EU chart with their 2012 U.S. presidential election chart.

Look very closely, and you'll notice that the Cameron government in Britain is actually more right-wing than Mitt Romney. Tongue

It's almost as realiable as Zogby polling.

I know right. Mitt should be closer to Victor Orban.

How do they get these numbers?  If they're actually going through the questions and trying to answer them as they think the people in question would, then they must be giving some strange answers to get some of those scores.

(I once did this myself with Tony Blair, and got a much more centrist score than they were showing for him at the time.)

The most telling thing about how not found of Cameron they are is that they put the UK just a point less authoritarian than Hungary.

Gary Johnson's placement on the economic axis might be most amusing though. And I don't know where they're getting Rocky Anderson being so economically right wing from.
