a) Who is your favourite politician and b) what are your political values?

a) Shoot every single politician (No exceptions) .... then re-shoot them when they're dead - to make sure.

b) I'm middle of the road.

I'm a firm believer in not letting school teachers run the health system. IMO most of the country's elected politicians are babbling morons who really shouldn't have been elected in the first place, and our problems stem from how they are elected at a local level.

I think that civilization is fecked, which is pessimistic but the truth.

I'm sorry, but you're talking nonsense. Reagan and Thatcher weren't libertarians. Reagan was statist.


I never said I liked them because they were libertarians. They were all good conservatists with strong characters and were very decisive - more than you can say about pretty much every politician!

Favourite? Gotta be Joan button, that sasquash really puts lead in my pencil.

Politics? Progressive,intelligent and for the greater good of all.But seeing as how in this country,the people who practice such are few and far between and are generally independents,they'll never come to power. All of which means the country's getting fcuked,ass or mouth,either way we're taking someone else's load.

If you like free-market capitalism you wouldn't like them.

Nigel Farage is my favourite politician.

I agree with his party's liberal policies on many social issues, and also agree with their stance on the European Union's invasion of sovereignty among many others.

I am pleased that a vote for the UKIP among many people is no longer considered to be a waste. In the next election it looks as if they will have surpassed the Liberal Democrats due to the hopelessness and ineptitude of the current conservative government.

Moreover, he is incredibly astute, charismatic and articulate. Far more so than any other leader of a mainstream British party.

Well... I do.

They were both fiscally conservative, they both had free markets, both privatised, lower taxes etc.

Reagan didn't have a free market. Do you call privatising profit and socialising loss free market economics?!
Government spending was HUGE after he left. That is not fiscal conservatism.

I quite like Nigel Farage. If there was an Irish politician of the same ilk, I would support him.

A few politicians to stand up against the greedy farmers would be nice too.


Who are these greedy farmers given the average income is less than half the industrial wage?

Lech Walesa
Vaclav Havel.
They put most of today's politicians to shame.
