This test will identify which of the major Australian political parties most aligns with your views. It will also tell you where your views lie on the left-right political spectrum.


Click here: (EDIT July 2011 - link doesn't work any more, go to http://www.politicalcompass.org instead for a different test) ozpolitics.info/blog/index.php?page_id=206

Then everyone paste the below aspects of your results in here! And here is me:

Highlander:

Party preference:
Greens 92%
Australian Democrats 87.6%
Labor Party 74%
Family First 35%
Liberal Party 21.6%
National Party 18.6%
One Nation 31.2%

Your broad political orientation score is -52.3%, which equates to a ‘Left’ position

Your economic policy score score is -19.8%. This equates to a ‘Centre Left’ position

Your social policy score is -66%. This equates to a ‘Left’ position

Your traditional values score is -90.9%. This equates to a ‘Far Left’ position

Do and discuss!

What can I say... I'm a Libran (balanced) so of course it figures I'd be Centred :roll:

excuse me a moment while I remove the splinters gained from fence sitting :lol:

Party preference
    Greens 48.1%
    Australian Democrats 44.3%
    Labor Party 53.8%
    Family First 57%
    Liberal Party 54.3%
    National Party 52.1%
    One Nation 52.9%
Because your highest score is less than 66.6%, it suggests you have significant areas of disagreement with each of the parties.
TVAus... more people arguing about TV more often :mrgreen:

@OJ and anyone else slightly miffed by result from the site itself
Caveats

This page was designed for fun. If you are unhappy with the results, do not worry about it too much. The instrument has not been validated scientifically and the results could be misleading.


Anyway they are interesting results but dont take it too seriously :wink:

Party preference

- Greens 84.6%
- Australian Democrats 72.5%
- Labor Party 65.0%
- Family First 29.5%
- Liberal Party 26.3%
- National Party 27.7%
- One Nation 34.6%

Political orientation -43.2 (Centre left)
- economic centre
- social left
- traditional far-left

I get the impression that in general, the economic section of this test is suspect - a friend of mine who is decidedly left got a "right" on economic.

I was left in everything and centre in one thing, it doesn't really mean much to me. I got the Greens as a result.
