On the political compass…

Quick thanks to Fran for sending me the URL of – a site which aims to estimate your politics not only on a left-right spectrum, but also on a libertarian / authoritarian axis. Based on +/- 10 on both axis, I emerged as Economically -1.22 (centre-left) and Authoritarianly -6.86 (heavy leanings towards libertarian politics). I am therefore relatively close to the politics of Simon Hughes and Charles Kennedy.
