    as Republicans....

    They by and large accept science, notably climate change and evolution;  they have to pretend to support the NHS, and most of them actually do support it;  not many of them are openly anti abortion  - they may favour limits, but of the 20 week variety;  nott much of a move to bring God into day to day political life.

    I'm not saying that they are all sane and rational, no, but I think any suggestion that they are like the GOP is rather mean!

    •  Conservative/Republican comparison (0+ / 0-)

      The more moderate Republicans are probably more like the Conservatives in the UK.  The more extremist elements are probably closer to UKIP and the BNP, but there are more extremist elements even within the Conservative party.  Thing is, most of their extremism is concentrated on the European Union.
