Re: How Patriotic?

wow a blast of information there.Made good reading too.The point has been made they are arrogant.When living in England the patriotism was not so strongly impregnated as it is now.Since my 2 girls came in to the world well its got even stronger.
Thanks for the back up guys.

Re: How Patriotic?

There's a website www.politicalcompass.org that may interest one or two of you, why don't you take the survey? You could well be surprised.

Has anyone tried the survey pointed out by "yerself", I took it and was very surprised where I am on the political compass so surprised that I did it again and got the same placement.

Re: How Patriotic?

According to your score Mick that means you should be voting for the Green Party in the European elections.

Re: How Patriotic?

Mez I thought you had to be either a libertarian or a authoritarian, click the link to the English Party Chart to see which political party is nearest to your score.

Re: How Patriotic?

OK back on topic again after yesterdays digressions. I watched TV last night and saw to my horror that Mastercard have jumped on the patriotism bandwagon and have hijacked the flag to flog their credit card. Using one of the memebers of the England football team from the sixties (name escapes me ) to deliver the final line "an England united, priceless! Which just about sums things up.

Re: How Patriotic?

That would be Bobby Charlton Acrylic. It is a bit cheap of MC and obviously the main point of the ad is to get people further in debt, but at least the sub-theme is quite a noble one.

Did the test couple of days ago - ended up slap bang in the middle of the y-axis (lib/authoritarian) yet surprisingly more left than I thought I would.
