So Bertie finally announced an election date for the next Dáil - May 24th. Graeme ran a piece two weeks ago on Political Compasses showing his score and a comparison of UK political party scores, and said that he could find no suitable UK party to match his score. I took the test myself just now, and according to Political.Compass.org’s information on Irish Parties my scores (Economic Left/Right: -0.75, Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.97) predict that I should be voting either for the Green Party or the Labour Party (or even better, for Gandhi if he was standing for election). Perhaps there should be a question in the test asking whether your grandparents were pro- or anti-treaty? ;-) What score did you get on the political compass?
