Who should I vote for?

Good news from the Scotsman:

The Liberal Democrats have emerged as the surprise choice of the "internet generation", according to the UK’s most- visited political website.

The results of a questionnaire on the Whoshouldyouvotefor.com site also suggest that Labour and the Conservatives have a long way to go if they are to win the elusive "young vote".

Whoshouldyouvotefor.com only launched last Tuesday, but already more than 200,000 people have taken the test that asks their opinions on policy areas. The results, released last night, found that 43 per cent of respondents expressed views most closely aligned with the Liberal Democrats.

A lot of people are posting their questionnaire results, so here are mine. I am pleased to say they are more or less what I expected.

The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places, but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather than ownership.
