British election

Soon we'll have an election too here in New Zealand, but this is what one of those quizzes tells me I should vote for if I was in Britain:
Who Should You Vote For?

Labour 4
Conservative -39

Liberal Democrat 44
UK Independence Party -34

Green 2

You should vote: Liberal Democrat

The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places, but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather than ownership.

Take the test at Who Should You Vote For

Maybe a rather predictable outcome, but I lean more to the Scottish Socialist and Scottish National Parties (more small countries, please) but they were not an option in the survey.
Luckily, in New Zealand, we can split our vote, which makes he electoral dynamic rather different than under a first past the post system.
