 :)  A bit of fun in the Guardian today - a quiz - how 'Populist' are you ?

https://www.theguardian.com/world/ng-interactive/2018/nov/21/how-populist-are-you-quiz

There have been comments on 'Populism', particularly on the Brexit thread I think.

Here's your chance to check it out  ;)   So what was my score ??

The Politician I was most like was Emmanuel Macron FGS and I was, gratifyingly, LEAST like a certain President Donald Trump  8)

If you have a go - NO cheating   >:(   ATB

My "results" on this fun quiz.

I am most similar to:
AMLO
Mexican president
Andrés Manuel López Obrador was elected earlier this year on pledges to fight corruption, moderate the 'war' on drugs, and champion 'the forgotten people'.

I am least similar to:
Donald Trump
US president
Donald Trump is the president of the US. He has repeatedly failed to condemn radical rightwing activists, and for a time employed Steve Bannon on his presidential team.

If at first you don't succeed you are clearly not cut out for it. Give up and move on.

I tried to do a Teess on this and tot up a little . . . of the 10 so far :-

''WE WERE MOST LIKE'' - Obama 2, Macron 2, Orban 2 and a Merkel etc !!

''WE WERE LEAST LIKE'' - just the two candidates - Trump 5 (reassuring), Pablo Iglesias 5 (Leader of Podemos, a leftwing Spanish party). The Trump bit I understand - but quite what is wrong with Snr Iglesias I'm not sure.   ;)

Ratsima and CK shared Obama  :) and Trump  ::)

Dam and Viking shared Orban  :) and Iglesias  ::)
