UK Election 2005

SaneScientist drew my attention to this voting survey. The results below are based on my answers to the questionaire. I'm a little surprised at the conclusion as I used to be staunch supporter of Old Labour. So either I've drifted to the Right in my old age (doubtless, influenced by your environment, I hear you say)or the LibDems have become the Left Wing party. Heaven knows where that puts Tony et al. I sense that he's lost the plot. Please note that (i) these results do NOT represent my endorsement of the LibDem party and (ii) in any case I'm a political eunuch as I'm not an American citizen and can't vote in the US, -neither can I vote in th UK as I'm not registered there. More comments on the election will follow in due course.

The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places, but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather than ownership.
