    I got:

    Economic Left/Right: -8.88
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -8.41

    I think I'm actually more liberal than -8.41 though.

    So most people on this site are capitalist-hating, surrender-monkies, yet we still have a right wing government with an even more right wing government coming soon.
    Maybe foot.ie is just full of really nice people. Or maybe we all like communism, but are just too brainwashing by political advertising to vote anything other than the 'norm'?
    Have you ever won the treble?

    i've found brendy that the discourse on here is usually a lot more reasoned and thought out than in other places, internet forum or not. sure look at what passes for political debate on citychat. and i thought you would have felt right at home with so many fellow commies.
    i believe in one man, one vote. i should be that one man with that one vote.

    ALWAYS ON TOUR!

    Not too far off Gandhi & Nelson Mandela! Which is kinda apt.

    Room for another small one in that quadrant?!

    Edit: Anyone seen this chart from before the last election? Interesting enough reading, if only to see how out of touch our politicians are with the crucial foot.ie vote!

    Always thought of myself as a 'left-wing' nationalist.
    Though please don't say 'national socialist', which is how some clown once interpreted it.....

    Only had one ball, apparently. Goring had two, but they were small.

    (Sorry, just came into me head.)

    I though so too, but the exit poll shows FG, Greens, Ind, Lab, FF in that order. Maybe there was an earlier poll.

    EDIT: The above was the 1st pref poll. The 1st, 2nd & 3rd poll shows a Labour win.

    There was a much more recent one (as in, last few weeks) on who you would vote for. I think Labour walked that.

    Edit - here we go.

    Puts me closest to the Greens and Labour, who are the two parties I've voted #1 in the last two elections.

    Your political compass
    Economic Left/Right: -5.62

    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.26

    Quelle suprise.

    Interesting questions and I did surprise myself with a few of my answers but mainly due to interpretation. E.g. mothers having careers, of course they should be home makers first and foremost or don't bother having children but equally so for the father.

    Brain shape may dictate your political beliefs...

    NEUROSCIENTISTS ARE examining whether political allegiances are hard-wired into people after finding evidence that the brains of conservatives are a different shape to those of left-wingers.
    Scans of 90 students’ brains at University College London (UCL) uncovered a “strong correlation” between the thickness of two particular areas of grey matter and an individual’s views.
    Self-proclaimed right-wingers had a more pronounced amygdala, a primitive part of the brain associated with emotion, while their political opponents from the opposite end of the spectrum had thicker anterior cingulates.
    The research was carried out by Geraint Rees, director of the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, who said he was “very surprised” by the finding, which is being peer reviewed before publication next year.
    It was commissioned as a light-hearted experiment by actor Colin Firth as part of his guest editing of BBC Radio 4’s
    Today*programme but has now developed into a serious effort to discover whether we are programmed with a particular political view.
    Prof Rees said that although it was not precise enough to be able to predict someone’s stance simply from a scan, there was a strong correlation that reached all our scientific tests of significance.
    “The anterior cingulate is a part of the brain that is on the middle surface of the brain at the front and we found that the thickness of the grey matter, where the nerve cells of neurons are, was thicker the more people described themselves as liberal or left wing and thinner the more they described themselves as conservative or right wing,” he told the programme.
    “The amygdala is a part of the brain which is very old and very ancient and thought to be very primitive and to do with the detection of emotions.
    “The right amygdala was larger in those people who described themselves as conservative. It is very significant because it does suggest there is something about political attitudes... either encoded in our brain structure through our experience or that our brain structure in some way determines or results in our political attitudes.” – (PA)
