Green Party Greens in first place in online policy survey
...an independent website which allows users to pick a political party based on policy alone has had some intriguing results.
www.voteforpolicies.org.uk sidesteps bias and traditional loyalty by getting voters to pick their favoured political policies without knowing which political party the policies have orginated from.
After 62 000 votes, the Greens have surprised political commentators as runaway leaders with over 28% of the vote.
By contrast, the establishment political parties are faring less well. The Liberal Democrats were the highest scorers of the other parties with 18% of the vote. Behind them Labour and the Conservatives followed with 17% and 16%, respectively. Minority parties UKIP and the BNP lagged behind with 11% and 10%.
