Arun posted this a few days ago and I'm passing it along because I think it's of interest to non-EU Flophouse readers.
The political landscape in the EU is very different from that of North America. Lots of different parties and a very wide spectrum of opinions and positions represented. Like many things, direct translation is not easy and may not even be possible.
If you were a Democrat in the US, what party would you most likely want to belong to in France? If you were PRI in Mexico, what party would interest you in Greece? If you were NDP in Canada in which UK parties would you find the most common ground?
One way to try and figure it out would be to take each EU country and all the major political parties, look at each party's positions carefully, and then try to map them to whatever political party you belong to in your home country.
Too much work?
As Arun points out there is an easier way. It's called the EU Profiler and here is how it works. The wizard asks you a series of questions and, based on your responses, gives you the parties within each EU state and shows you which ones are closest to your opinions. Pretty nifty.
To my astonishment I ended up in the center left.
Here is the direct link: EU Profiler.
Oh and if you have a moment, drop a comment with your results - home country party affiliation and what the EU profiler told you was a close match.
