EU Profiler: the authors of Kieskompas, a "Vote-O-Mat"-style tool for the undecided Dutch voter, following up on their adaptation for the US Presidential election (previously on MeFi), will launch an EU-wide version for the European Parliament elections upcoming in June. So Europeans, urge your political parties to register! The tool itself will launch in May.

Any chance they could use the information on policy matching on this website and the eventual votes to generate a couple of interesting maps? Or even logging the countries from which the questionnaire takers come from and their aggregate political views?

Europe *needs* a red state/blue state map, like yesterday. I know it's simplistic, but being able to 'understand' the European electoral landscape in one look, to have something really iconic where people from one state can see how they related politically to people from another, would be so useful in helping the electorate come together. Often the parliamentary elections are just 27 (or however many) separate contests, and not one big general election.

(Oh, and does anybody have the latest on the Le Pen Problem? I recently went to a talk by Nick Clegg and the Q&A at the end was a little bit of a tiswas when it was raised.)

I would hope not!

A red/blue/green/orange/purple/yellow/violet/indigo/crimson/lavender/navy/mint/khaki/peach map, sure.

But only two parties? Please, no, no, NO!

Oh sure, I didn't mean just two parties! I meant an iconic map in the same style, which gives people a feel for how they group together politically across the whole union. Surely that's got to be worth having?

Sova: yes, I agree!
