Election fun

Lots of fun politcal websites have appeared following the announcement of the general election next month. These came from a friend.

The Political Compass website has a test that measures where you lie on a 2-dimensional political scale. The 2-d scale combines the usual right / left distinction with an authoritarian / libertarian scale. I came out as a libertarian lefty with roughly the same political stance as Nelson Mandela.

The Who Should You Vote For website asks you questions about various issues (healthcare, European union etc.) and then compares your answer with the manifestos of the five main UK political parties (Labour, Conservatives, Liberal Democrats, UK Independence Party and the Green party). I should vote for the Lib Dems, apparently.
