The election : 2016 easily

The year: 2006 pretty easily


The whole 2000s are probably the most Conservative Decade we have had since the 1920s

The 1980s too were so conservative with the Reagan Revolution, Theresa May in the United Kingdom and Brian Mulroney in Canada, notably.

I consider the Bush hears more conservative than the Reagan ones at least here in the US

Theresa May wasn't even an MP in the 1980s.

Agree.
And I interpreted the question as the election, so voted 2016.

2016 was more fiscally conservative, 2006 was more socially conservative.

In 2016 the left was further left, but the right was further right. Overall a slight advantage to the left. But the marginalization of the far right in 2006, which was not marginalized in 2016, and the far more aggressive posture of the Right in 2016, should not be underestimated.

I don't agree at all. Drumpf campaigned well on the left of Bush.

2006 was more socially conservative, keeping with the modern trend of every succeeding year being more socially liberal than the former; but 2016 was more prosperous for the right worldwide, with the resurgence of seemingly dead former nationalist and populist figures and movements.

On some issues, sure. But Bush never called for a Muslim ban, for instance.

2006 was more Neocon/warhawk, 2016 was more free speech/anti-PC mantle taken up by the right and anti-immigration

Actually, the 1700's and early 1800's were the most socially conservative.

But out of the two, easily 2016, and I predict right will continue to become more socially conservative.

Did you accidentally stumble upon mixing up white female Tory MP's?
