Are You Left Or The Right?
There has been some discussion between those in the news section as to which way the majority of AB "swings". To provide a little clarity I would like everyone to say which side of the fence they sit - in their own opinion. I do realise this a blunt measurement - but it is a good starting point!
This poll is closed.
Which way do you swing?
- "Left" - 26 votes
- "Right" - 22 votes
- "Centre" - 20 votes

The Tories under Cameron have also given the appearance of being centrist but from time to time you suspect they are itching to revert back to their roots. This is very evident when they get the Liberals to do the dirty work and so to take the blame. We may see their true intentions of the Tory Party nearer to the next election when the division has to occur with the Liberals.
Currently we here a lot rhetoric which seems to lay the blame of a housing boom/bust at the feet of those who didn't benefit from it, or sometimes, weren't even part of it.
I believe I am "socially liberal" however. I think one important role for government is to try and help those who have been unlucky.
your suggested budget measures cited above would create disproportionate hardship for below average earners, state pensioners and the unemployed. It would create greater disparity between the better off and the less well off - would you be prepared to change or eliminate your regressive measures to produce greater fairness - and, if so, how would you do it ?
At the moment your political tag might be seen as righty/centrist ?
