Left or right?

Do the political quiz at Tampon teabag - are you on the left or the right in these troubling times? It turns out I am exactly balanced half-way in between. As Neil Kinnock said to David Owen, if you stand in the middle of the road you soon get knocked over. (Or did someone else say that?)

(Previous quizzes: Who is your inner humanitarian celebrity?, Are you George Galloway?, What kind of anarchist are you anyway?, Is your world view exactly the opposite of what you think?, Are you middle class?, Love America or leave it?, What on earth is going on in the world today?)

Glad you liked the quiz. In the comments beneath it I said that if you're balanced in between, that makes you irresponsibly apathetic. You sleep-walk your way through life refusing to tackle any issues which make you uncomfortable. On the rare occasion that you do engage your brain to think about politics at some superficial level, you try to be all things to all men, and end up hopelessly straddling every fence going. You're paralysed by indecision, and incapable of forming your own opinions. You don't vote for anyone, and your blog of choice is probably the personal website of some tedious trainspotter or something.

Anyhow, cheers for the link.
