    Default EU profiler.

    Open to all of course.

    Post your scores. Mine was with the UK Independence Party. Blimey.

    It got my EU pro-EU integration correct (strongly pro)

    It got my socio-economic status almost ok (a bit to the left though it should be leaning to the right)

    It totally messed up with the party that fits my status. It seems to think that the most pro-EU party is the ex-Socialist party. The one that got elected in the 80's by mottos like 'out of EU and out of NATO' and the one that currently has a half-American president...yeah right...

    ...They did a good job with the poll but messed up the parties I think.

    That's pants. It says I should be BNP. In that case I should start thinking of the most painful suicide I can think of. It got my compass location closest to conservative though, which was acceptable, but wied, seeing as BNP was one of the furthest away from me.

    I was placed between the Conservatives and the BNP. Which is strange, since they are two of the parties I put as being least likely to vote for.

    I think that all the graph does is show your relevent position with regards to the other partys. I don't think it's intended to show who you should vote for, rather which of the political partys is closest to your view on the EU.

    The graph shows your pro- and anti- EU contrasted with a simplified socioeconomic left-right slider, so those who are anti-EU or pro-EU and are very strong in those beliefs may come close to an extremist party in some countries. Also, extremist parties on this scale may be put close to non-extremist parties (for example, The Greens are fairly close to Die Linke - closer than in real life IMO), which would not happen on the political compass scale.

    Now, for my results. With Germany, I came very close to Die Republikaner, who I think I will vote for in the European election. My socioeconomic policies were more free market extreme and less socially extreme than Die Republikaner's, but my anti-EU was the same. Interestingly enough, it also put me near the DVU, which I gave a one on the 0-10 scale of who you would vote for (with 10 being most likely and 0 being the least likely). The only party I gave a lower rating than the DVU was Die Linke.

    Meh, I'm almost exactly in the center of that graphic (a very little bit anti-Euro and a very, very little bit to the left). It comes as no surprise to see that there doesn't exist a single political party in Belgium that comes close to that.

    I'm moderately in the Lib Dem quadrant, but equidistant from all 3 parties. If I were in Scotland, SNP comes close to my position. Northern Ireland apparently has no political parties.

    I took the quiz as an Englishman and wound up exactly in the middle on the EU integration bar and half-way to the right on the Economy. I was closest to the Tories as one would imagine.

    I took this a few days ago (on the Paradox forums, I believe) and fell remarkably in line with the Liberal Democrats, with Labour sitting at my sphere's edge.

    Sounds a bit like me. There was a party from one of the other countries that was sitting almost directly on top of where I landed, but most of the parties were a distance away towards the top of the graph. I think what counts as a moderate in England is hugely Euro-sceptical compared to most of Europe.

    Well, nationally it tells me "Freie Wähler" or free voters, if that's a party, I haven't heard of it yet, it wasn't in the graph I think, no party was in my circle nationally.

    In european terms it tells me the "Svenska Folkpartiet i Finland" should get my vote.

    Oh and it has me down as slightly left and almost half way on the pro EU side.

    if the scoring was the same as political compass i would be L/R = 3 and EU/UK = -9

    it put me between UKIP and BNP.

    and oddly enough it put the Cons as more left wing than labour.

    That's fascinating.

    The problem in Ireland is that all our parties are morons.

    That said, the profiler was interesting but too one-dimensional (as these questions tend to be). It dropped me into the Labour party (see Kukri's chart, reddish point to top left) which is pro-Europe and left of centre. Whereas if I vote, I tend to fall somewhere near Fine Gael (pro-Europe, sort-of conservative). Despite several 100% comparators, apparently my views on civil liberties, finance, bail-outs and locking people up diverge. Which is odd, since my views on those things are conservative, or at least what used to be conservative. Apparently, nowadays, if one believes that preserving civil rights against the lies of power-hungry governments who use terrorism as an excuse, this makes one a leftie.

    I thought the questions had rather a lot of weighting towards national politics rather than the EU. And they don't understand that one can be very pro-Europe, but very anti the Lisbon Treaty.

    Interesting to delve into the European party comparisons though.

    EDIT: Amusing that the British graph has New Labour further over to the socio-economic right than the Tories.

    In between the Tories and Greens, 72% and 70% respectively. Although it put me pretty close to the BNP as well, 67%, which made me laugh.

    It doesn't seem to take the party probability into account though. I put Lib Dems as 10, Tories at 7 and Greens at 5. All the rest at 0.

    Edit: The overseas voter rules are a pain though. Got to register before May 19th...
