I am a Lib Dem (or so this website says)

Clicking on this website and answering the questions told me I am a Lib Dem. Interestingly my third choice is apparently "Green". Funny that as I don't support their policy of allowing people to stay out of work and earning a "citizens income" with no compulsion to work, I don't believe in the nationalisation of supermarkets and I don't support green plans to abolish stem cell research.

A rather restricted set of questions I'm afraid. My result was
1 Labour
2 Green
3 Lib Dem

Probably because I don't want the Euro. I think our interest rates would, 99% of the time, be set at a level at odds with what the British economy actually needs.

I too put down that I do not support the Euro.

Still confused how anything I put down placed me as anywhere near to the Green communism that they want whilst hiding it from the electorate.

Yup, Green communism all the way. I think we've got a motion going to Autumn Conference to remove that clause from our Manifesto for a Sustainable Society because after all, everything is infinate right? Resources, people, etc. After all, we are dogmatic us Greens. I wonder when we'll ditch a commitment to free university education? After all, it is a whacky idea.

Natioanalising supermarkets, a citizens income (with no job centres or compulsion to work), no stem cell research (explain that to peple whose family have alzheimers). I could go on, but it appears you don't know your own policies.

How will you pay for all this ? Massive tax rises. Do you explain this to your middle class voters ? Do you hell !

Maybe you're closer to actual Green politics than you think, rather than the straw man Greens you love to misrepresent?

Norfolk Blogger said...

I'll refer you to this.

I'm so sorry, coming out as a Lib Dem is a toughthing for anyone. One day society will be tolerant, one day.....

None of the above said...

No work?

Citizen's income?

Count me in.

Sounds even better than teaching. And yes, I am enjoying the near seven weeks off but 52 is the sort of thing I'm looking for.

An Activist President said...

Yup, just three decent policies our middle-class voters love. Heck, it's why my parents vote Green. They can't wait until they get a Citizens Income; we all pray for the day, I know we do.

So, out of the whole Manifesto for a Sustainable Society you, Nich, can only find three policies you really don't like the look of? Pretty good going I reckon. Well done, Greens.

I see basic literacy is not a prerequisite of being a Green then. Read the link posted and you'll see a whole list.

Then again, the Greens in Norwich are an odious bunch. Everytime I see Rupert Read I want to hear the McFly song "It's all about you" start up as his theme tune.

I note that his new website has as one of the endorsements a stining personal attack on one of Rupert Read's oppoenents for a role in the Green Party.

It seems the Green "clean campaign" pledge does not extend to internal party elections.
