Which party should I vote for? (UK)

Which party should I vote for?
The percentages below show how often you agree with each party. For instance, if your score for Labour is 70%, it means that you agree with Labour 70% of the time.
Labour 21%
Conservative 53%
Greens 52%
LibDem 37%
UKIP 85%
Recommendation: You should support the UK Independence Party. The UK Independence Party is a relatively new party, set up in the early 1990s to campaign for Britain to withdraw from the European Union and negotiate a free trade agreement instead. Over the past few years, they have broadened their manifesto to include a commitment to a simplified, fairer flat tax system which would take millions of lower-aid workers out of tax altogether. They believe that the key to economic growth is simplifying and reducing bureaucracy and the tax burden - believing that the public can spend their own money better than the state can! The UK Independence Party believes that the public should have a greater say in how the country is run. The UK Independence Party believes that people would be more interested in politics if they could change public policy by calling a binding referendum on important social and moral issues. They are also pro-civil liberties. The results of this quiz only tell you how often you agree with each party, but it can't tell you which are the most important issues for you. You should therefore treat this result as a guide only.

Dear Dr Catt, Hon McGechan
I was wondering if you could help me please? I am struggling to reconcile the decisions below:
- Electoral Commission decision 2008-47, Green Party, election advertisement
- Electoral Commission decision 2008-45, ACT New Zealand, election advertisement

Your organisation has refered a complaint about a jacket to the police, but not a complaint about a sign. I look forward to your response.

Gordon Brown
