Election 2004

| | Comments (3)

So today is Australia's federal election. I confess to having no interest whatsoever in politics, and I tend to think they're all as bad as one another. The heated discussion on Oz-ISP has been somewhat interesting though. Then someone posted a link to a quiz on political preferences, and I was rather surprised at my result:

I was very surprised, because even though I don't consider myself to prefer any of the major parties, I have a tendency to prefer labour, because they seem to support the little guy a bit more. Which in itself is ironic, because under a liberal government with the introduction of the GST and the associated tax cuts I'm actually quite a bit better off than I was before the GST. But I voted against liberal at the last election because I didn't want it, as I think it hurts lower income earners more than higher ones.

I would have thought my Greens preferences would have rated much higher, as I do care a lot about the environment.

So I still don't know who I'm going to vote for today. But I'll still do what I do every time - vote for *everyone else* first, then labour and liberal at the very end.

Heehee! I know what you mean! I did it and it said this:
"Because your highest score is less than 67%, it suggests you have significant areas of disagreement with each of the parties." meaning I don't like any of them particularly much at all!!! =)

67% for one nation?! Hehe...

I got 71% for both Labor AND Liberal... figure that one out.

I think the survey needs tweaking to be honest - I'm sure there are some things it gets wrong. Interesting attempt though.
