This thread can cover a whole range of issues involving the politics of social issues, personal responsibility, fiscal issues and ethics etc. so I thought it would be good to simply discuss things here, but remember that no matter how opposing another persons views are, avoid flaming and insults ;).

If you're not to sure about your political orientation you can take a quick test at the link below and you will get some results on whether you're more conservative or liberal on certain issues. You should find the BBC politics (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/default.stm) section a good place to go to for info but as with all forms of media you may encounter some biased opinion from it's columnists etc.

ok, I'm not sure if it is like here in the rest of the world... Here we have left and right wing (we just call it left or right) and tehy different principals. For example comunism is left and conservatism (or whatever) is right. So what side are you on? I'm on left. (I sound like a 10 year kid trying to explain my political visions)

It's the same thing here too, right wing = conservative and left wing = liberal (communism being a far left political party.) As my results say, on some issues I'm more conservative (right) than liberal (left) but on most issues I'm more liberal so you could say I'm centre - left with my views. I think the rest of the world adheres to to the same system.

Not that I have much idea what this all means. IMO politics is something to be avoided if possible. :D
