It has become de rigueur for every election to have at least one online quiz that tells you how you should vote. The 2011 Scottish Parliament electon has Scottish Vote Compass.
I have not exactly found myself becoming hooked on the Scottish Parliament election campaign. To be honest, I care much more about the alternative vote referendum. Nevertheless, I thought I would give it a go and see what it said.
On this chart, I am represented by the star icon towards the bottom-right.
It is perhaps no real surprise to learn that the Liberal Democrats are my closest match. The Greens are second apparently, although it doesn’t really look like it from the graph to me.
While I was at it, I decided to once again take the daddy of all political quizzes, the original Political Compass.
This time my score was:
Economic Left/Right: 0.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.51
So I have moved a bit to the left, and have become slightly less libertarian, since the last time I took it in 2009 — a reversal of the trend.
