This may surprise you....don't be afraid to click on 'other stances' if you need more options.

Take the Quiz

Not sure if there's an SNP option through or Plaid Cymru.

Anya Mon 29-May-17 16:04:58

Bum! You're not your ....and in a heading too.

hangs head in shame ???

ninathenana Mon 29-May-17 16:42:00

Hmm interesting. Thanks Anya
I thought I would vote a certain way but wasn't sure. The quiz says I should vote that way.

Nandalot Mon 29-May-17 17:06:33

I think there are flaws inmthus. Surely, the railways question is badly worded. The analysis of the results shows that Conservatives are against the privatisation of the railways. Similarly the stance on healthcare. That can't be right.

Nandalot Mon 29-May-17 17:07:06

Flaws in this.

Megram Mon 29-May-17 17:11:21

Interesting! Made me focus a little more on one or two issues. The outcome confirmed the party that I was veering towards.

Chewbacca Mon 29-May-17 17:11:50

Pretty accurate results for me.

NanaandGrampy Mon 29-May-17 17:35:43

Accurate results for me, but I did have to give some of the questions a bit of thought as a straight yes or no.

I would say this quiz was pretty accurate.

M0nica Tue 30-May-17 11:34:18

Fine, for listing the party whose positive views you share, but doesn't take into account any reason you have for not voting for that party no matter what.

Anniebach Tue 30-May-17 12:10:25

mmmmm, interesting ,pleased to see Plaid Cymru listed

f77ms Tue 30-May-17 12:10:29

Accurate for me

rosesarered Tue 30-May-17 14:35:28

Well!! turns out I'm a Green! ( not really ) grin

Ana Tue 30-May-17 16:28:07

I thought that too, Nandalot. They seem to have re-hashed an old survey for this GE and some of the questions aren't really appropriate.

Yes, Annie, I noticed Plaid was there. No idea about SNP!

Hate it when the computer is right

Lazigirl Tue 30-May-17 20:23:06

I did a different survey few weeks ago which showed me left wing. This one shows me as slightly left and Lib Dem, but quite close to Labour and Green. I am definitely Labour. Good thing am a long way from Tories or UKIP. I do share quite a few of the Lib Dem and Greens ideals, no Party has all the answers surely?

Deedaa Tue 30-May-17 21:49:55

Shows I am Labour with Lib Dem as a runner up and Greens not far behind. About right I think.

hildajenniJ Tue 30-May-17 23:57:59

Shows me as siding with the Conservatives with leaning GS to the Greens and whispers UKip.

M0nica Wed 31-May-17 17:53:47

Well, as a member of the Lib Dems I was relieved to see they were the clear winner, even though I do not support the decriminalising of cannabis, or any other drugs, with Labour then Conservatives a little way behind.

annodomini Wed 31-May-17 22:33:11

Green, Labour and Lib Dem in that order. I have already voted by post but this would not have changed my mind. Tactical voting this time to try to oust the Tory MP.

M0nica Thu 01-Jun-17 09:51:24

I have never lived in a constituency where tactical voting would have any effect at all. So I stick to my principles. Anyway, tactical voting means being counted as one of the voters who voted for a party whose policies and ideaologies stick in ones craw and I could never get over the shame of having voted for them.

Anniebach Thu 01-Jun-17 09:57:27

Green, Plaid Cymru, Labour for me.

Lazigirl Thu 01-Jun-17 11:42:36

I think in our undemocratic FPTP system tactical voting can be useful as many feel unrepresented by their comfortably sitting MP, who may have more votes against than support them. It is certainly the case in my constituency.

Happygran1964 Thu 01-Jun-17 22:12:44

Bang on for me. UKIP with Conservative a close second.
