Not in any way a surprise here, but crucially this year they appear to have takn on board criticism made last time (well, the guy who coded it read my post) and the issues appear to me to be a fair spread of party policies.

However, last time it biased in favour of the Lib Dems, and I got Lib Dem, which, y'know, I should; anyone from different parties wanting to critique it are welcome to post in the comments if they don'[t want to blog it themselves.

I came out at Green 67, Lib Dem 63, Labour 8, UKIP -8, Tory -28, which seems about right (I expected Green). I'd've expected Labour to be higher and the Lib Dems to be lower, though. And I'd've thought I'd be less likely to vote UKIP than Tory.

I got Green, which I wasn't expecting at all.

I was expecting Green and got Green, though only narrowly from Lib Dem.

The big problem with this sort of thing is that it doesn't factor in "how much do you trust these parties to do what they say they're going to do?" which is one of the most important criteria for me.

I notice that almost everyone on my flist has got Green, apart from you and me, and I ended up with Labour just ahead of Green with LDs last behind the Tories and UKIP! I think we can safely state this is worthless.

I got 77 LD, 76 Green, 2 Lab, 1 UKIP and -18 Tory, though my problem with a lot of these quizzes is that there's always some questions I'd answer with 'it depends'. For instance, I think a 0% council tax raise is a good idea, but the policy they're linking it to is the stupid Tory proposal to impose it centrally which I don't support.

And the Greens always score highly with LDs and LD voters in these sort of quizzes because they never include questions on the crazier parts of Green policies - there's nothing in there about science and technology policies, for instance.

We don't have any party resembling Liberal Democrats here in NZ, but I guessed that's what I'd get going by the questions. And I can't imagine any Green voters being told to vote Green by this poll, since there were only a couple of Greenish questions. So I felt pretty manipulated by it.
