The Election

The Economist has come out in favour of David Cameron and the Conservative Party. Famed for its liberal and consequently small state stance, the newspaper’s opinion is always well thought out and influences my own point of view.

Two interesting tools have been published to help understand how your own opinion matches the policies of the various parties.

  • Votematch is a guide on the Telegraph which asks for your point of view then matches them to the closest party.
  • Vote for policies is a little harder: it actually makes you read sections from the manifestos before making up your mind which you prefer.

Both are worth while trying: my own true blue was tempered by a surprising amount of liberalism. I hope both tools are around for the next election.
