Their idea is that there are 7 political tribes in Australia and I belong to the second smallest at only 6%, the Anti-establishment Firebrand. Which I'm sure is meant to be an insult or even a warning to everyone else to beware of us, but I'm very happy to be an Anti-establishment firebrand.
Here's what the political tribes are and the percentage (rounded off) which they claim for each:
The Lavish Mod-Cons are actually 5.5% and there fore the smallest group, but I rounded everyone off, Ambitious Savers were 9.9%, I say lets just call it 10% and be done with it.
I'm not sure how much this should be trusted but I do know people who fall into each category, but I do wonder about the numbers. The Progessives and the Activists seem high to me and the Pessimists and the Firebrands seem low, but maybe thats wishful thinking. But to think even the Left agree's that 1 in ever 20 Australians have Conservative attitudes and hate the Government no matter whether it is Liberal or Labor is a good thing. Australia is changing, 30 years ago for that to be true would have been unthinkable, but not now.
The thing the survey does show is that we are becoming more and more divided, just like the rest of the Western world. We have less and less in common, Liberalism is working it's wicked magic.
