    Reasonable set of questions. It's worth using the slider for most and least and often looking at the other options.

    Anyway it looks like I won't be voting Tory or UKIP. Not that I was planning on doing so.

    I don't get how the percentages don't add up to 100?

    Each policy is scored and at the end you get a % of how much you agree with the various party policies. Not surprised my UKIP score is low as I believe that immigrants do a lot for our country and I support being in Europe.

    My labour score possibly could have been higher but I'm pretty ambivalent about the Royal Family - queen works hard, they help secure significant business deals abroad and attract a shed loads of tourists. But there was an uprising and we turned into a Republic I wouldn't be in the front line defending their inherited wealth and status.

    As you can see, I don't really care which of the main three get in, but another coalition including the Lib Dems is probably best.

    Doubt that's going to happen though. I think there is going to be a major constitutional crisis following this election.

    They need to give proportional representation a shot.

    I would agree, but the parties that support it traditionally don't do well enough to get it through. The ones that don't support it are, not surprisingly, Labour and the Conservatives, and they would still be large enough together to veto any moves to bring it in. I do think it is time now though to give it a go. I would go for the Single Transferable Vote, which isn't as much a form of PR as a scientific method of reducing the number of wasted votes. It just also tends to be reasonably proportional to the first preference votes cast. It has other benefits though, such as a choice of candidates within parties, the ability to "mix and match" votes over more than one party, and the use of "natural boundaries", i. e. the constituencies would tie in with existing areas such as counties or cities, instead of having to fit the populations exactly. Population differences are merely covered by having different numbers of MPs returned from each area.
