    I'm sure the brits here will have something to say about where the actual political spectrum is.

    Indeed... and whilst it would be easy to comment on traditional left vs right policy, as it is understood in the UK, things have moved on and there is a more '3-dimensional' spectrum now.. where economic, social, philosophical and personal beliefs can span the traditional linear divide, making it harder to define an individual as simply 'left' or 'right'.
