Social Issues

Abortion:I am strongly pro-choice.
Separation of church and state: Religion and Government must not mix. If they do then it creates Fascism. Legalize same-sex marriage and same-sex adoption.
Affirmative action: Support it, and would increase it to prevent discrimination aganist minority groups.
Hate crimes: It helps to tackle racism, homophobia, sexism, etc. Support it.
Gun control: I would ban them all, guns are not needed, there are other ways to protect yourself. Only the police and the military should be allowed to own guns.
Death penalty: Abolish it, totally cruel and unneeded. There's something call prisons where criminals should go.
Flag burning: Everyone has the right to free speech.
Euthanasia: The government should have no say in when people can or can not die. I support the legalization of it.
Prostitution:I find it quite disgusting, but everyone should have a right to ruin thier lives or enjoy thier lives or whatever.
Immigration: I would make immigration easier, and would grant amnesty to illegal immigrants.

Economic Issues

Taxes: Raise taxes on the rich and upper middle class, decrease them slightly for everyone else.
Trade: Support protectionism to prevent jobs from moving from country to country.
Spending: Decrease defense spending, increase spending on the needed social programs.
Welfare: Welfare keeps society more fair, and i support increasing funding for Social Security.
Education: The public school system needs more funding, and i support increasing teacher's wages.
Regulations: Increase regulations to prevent abuse of workers.

Foreign Policy

Military Involvement: We should bring all our troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan as soon as possible.
United Nations: Support it, it helps create more peace in the world.
Israel: Don't support it.
Foreign aid: Increase it for the countries that need it most.

Economic Issues:

Budget: We need to cut wasteful spending on, for example, the military and defence, and increase on things like the NHS, education and pensions.

Income Tax: Cut taxes for the poor and working class. Increase on the rich.

Green Taxes: I support them.

Privatisation: Against. We should re-nationalize everything that Labour and the Tories have privatised since 1979.

Domestic Issues:

Education: Abolish student top-up fees. Increase teacher's pay and abolish unneeded testing. Reduce class sizes. 
 
Labour Unions: I support them. Give them more power.

Law and Order: I strongly oppose the death penalty. I think that law and order is an area where spending can be reduced.

Public transport: Re-nationalize British Rail.

Immigration: End all restrictions. Grant amnesty to illegal immigrants.
 
Social Issues:

Gay Rights: Strongly support same-sex marriage and adoption.

Euthanasia: There should be a legal option for you to end your life in any situation.
 
Abortion: Strongly pro-choice.   

Drinking Age: Abolish drinking age limit.

Foregin Issues:

European Union: Has it's good points and bad points. I support staying in.
Iraq and Afghanistan: Withdraw from both countries as soon as possible.

Constituional Issues:

Voting Reform: I support either a PR, AV or IRV system to replace FPTP. I also support a registered voting system like the USA have, and i also support Primaries, like in the USA.

Monarchy: I support abolishing the Monarchy. After that, we should put in place Presidential Elections every four years, on a fixed date. We should keep the House of Commons (but use one of the alternative voting systems that i mentioned above), and the Leader of the biggest party should be the Prime Minister. We should make the House of Lords into an elected Senate (again, using one of the alternative voting systems that i mentioned above).

@ Free the Weed: Why do you hate fundies so much? Most of the founders were fundies.

It's interesting that you use the term "fundies" without scare quotes or quotation marks.
