That's a pity. He was on my roll and I don't know what happened. Yes, quite a few are doing it. If I stop, it will only be because they pulled the plug on me.

Economic Left/Right: 6.62
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 1.59

Left/Right -7.75
Lib/Auth -6.38

James Higham said...

No surprises there, boys.

Lord Nazh said...

nope ;)

I suspect jams and I would have fun drinking, but we'd have to not discuss politics at all heh

BobG said...

Economic Left/Right: 3.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.15

Need to go and find my latest result from last week. At least am a long way away from the authoritarian spot which is important to me ;-)

CalumCarr said...

Economic Left/Right = -8.5

Social Libertarian / Authoritarian = -7.9

At least, Jams isn't far away.

James Higham said...

Bloggers uncovered.

Lord Nazh said...

I cannot bring myself to get past page one, because a bad question demands a bad answer.

If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations.
(Unacceptable choices.)

Our race has many superior qualities, compared with other races.
(All groups have superior and inferior qualities, except the English)

There is now a worrying fusion of information and entertainment.
(Information and entertainment are both worrying all by themselves.)

It must get better, but just grade me Robert Conquest--All things not specifically right wing soner or later become left wing.

James Higham said...

Thanks, all and that point about th questions being bad is so. There were a few questions where I jsut clicked "disagree" for that reason, skewing the results.

In actuality, I'd be on the other side of the Libertarian line but the place Left-Right is probably correct.

It's a pity the socialists and left liberals hijacked the term liberal because it has a noble history and Lord Nazh is even a Liberal in the traditional sense.

Lord T said...

xlbrl,

That is just your opinion tainting your view. The English do have superior qualities, just can't thinof any at the moment, and they do have inferior qualities as well, I would tell you but there Google limits blogs to only so many Gb.

Lord Nazh,

Of course. Having no brains means that there is little else use for them besides burning and taking the mickey.

James Higham said...

You get out of bed the right side, Lord T?

Yours is just a notch to the right from mine.

James Higham said...

Good to see you again, m'lord.
