UK elections-who would you vote for?


I just completed the short questionaire on the following website

www.whoyoushouldvotefor.com

Apparently,i should vote for the Greens-which comes as a bit of a surprise considering my penchant for private vehicles (6 large motorcycles and a Merc 126),air travel,fresh fruit and veg flown in from the four corners of the earth,motorsport,barbeques,farmed salmon,carrier bags,disposable nappies(when my kids were small-not as a fetish),chlorine bleach,detergents,leaving my TV and PC on,wearing T+shorts in winter and turning up the cental heating,open windows...etc etc.

Anyway,if anyone has five minutes to kill and feels like being a virtual Brit,do the survey and post your results-i would be interested in a foreign perspective.

Yeah, instead of wasting your vote on the major candidates, get behind a small party with new ideas.

Vote Libertarian!

...are the Greens running a national slate? I'm surprised they haven't emerged as a stronger entity, given New Labour's many missteps in the NeoCon direction.

I took the 3.5 minutes to answer the survey questions and apparently I should vote Green too. This comes as no surprise, since I voted Green in the last two elections. (Don't worry all you Dems---I live in Alabama, a state redder than Laura Bush's face after hearing dear old W say 'internets'---so no chance I helped the current administration into power.)
So, now that I've been a virtual Brit, does that mean I get to say "bloody 'ell" and "wanker" with impunity? [:D]

Jillian, in penance and punishment for not mindlessly following your state's culture, you are sentenced to carry a massive granite boulder with engraved religious symbols across the USA and listen to self-righteous parsons preach about it.

You may not use 'wanker' unless insulting owners of Mazdas with a certain type of engine.
