Another political quiz

I've spotted this post on Mustafa Arif's blog about a new political quiz. My results show me as firmly on the centre-right, but curiously "likely to be fairly free-market and pro-war" when I opposed the war, albeit not on the same grounds as many on the left did, and am not fully convinced of the benefits of the free market (and even willing to contemplate protectionist tariffs to help the British economy). I'm also described as "slightly punitive and isolationist" when I'm really internationalist, but I suspect the quiz wasn't designed to distinguish between those with a true international outlook and those who seem to think everything revolves around the European Union.

Also the Daily Telegraph may be pleased to hear that I have the views of many of their readers. Now if only they would make it cheap enough I may buy it regularly. And I'm a natural Conservative voter. I wonder what gave that away?!

I came out as only slightly right-wing on the main axis and extremely right-wing on the lesser axis: My results

It does seem a rather odd set of axes to plot - there is no reason that support for war etc would be related to belief in the market in any way. Both socialism and a war of liberation both involve strong state intervention, yet are on different ends of the spectrum here. The Left-Righ, Libertarian-Authoritarian seems more accurate here.
