I'm interested in the opinions of those here as to where our current and past governments have been positioned in the political spectrum.
So of we take -10 as Communism (State ownership of resources and production) and +10 as Total deregulation and corporatisation of all government functions, where would the current Liberal, Labor and Green Parties stand, and also past governments ?
How about Whitlam, Hawke/Keating, Howard, Rudd, Gillard?
Personally I'd rate Whitlam -5, Hawke/Keating +2, Howard +4, Turnbull +3, Shorten +1, Abbott +8, Greens -3, Xenephon 0, Palmer +7, Rudd 0, Gillard -2.
Any thoughts ?
