Oh Yes We Are A Pinko

Via one of our associates, and of marginal interest to half of you, a sort of vote predictor for the UK's election on May 2005. We heartily suggest that you follow events on the 5th of May from about 6pm on CSPAN, if they decide to carry it. Excellent drinking fun. All you have to do is take a sip whenever a Tory loses, and down the lot if a member of the Shadow Cabinet loses. The list can be found here. Know your enemy. We will unfortunately be Houston, not known as a hotbed of parliamentary enthusiasm. Unless the chaps at the Flying Saucer remember how charming we were last February. Anyway, follows where the vote predictor has us:

Who Should You Vote For?

Who should I vote for?

Your expected outcome:


Your actual outcome:

Labour 20
Conservative -41
Liberal Democrat 34
UK Independence Party -29
Green -2

You should vote: Liberal Democrat

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.

Cutesome Companion is a Liberal Democrat, too!

Cutesome is, of course, delightfully left-leaning. The fun bit would be to find a "moderate democrat" to take the test, and see if they would come out as a Tory. It is emminently possible.
