Australian Politics Test

I found an interesting blog called The Oz Politics Blog. On it, it has an “Australian Politics Test“.

As I suspected, I came out as centrist with a slightly left lean (my results are here). In terms of economic and social policy, I leaned further towards the left, but in terms of traditional values, I leaned further towards the right (I like to think of my leanings in this regard as “old fashioned manners”).

I think this reflects my posts very nicely: supportive of indigenous people, homosexual marriage, feminism, cultural and religious diversity, protecting employees from exploitation, but also keen on family, respecting other people and having some kind of moral basis to society.

All a bit of fun, anyway!
