You may remember the political quiz promoted by @Freakenstein a month or so ago. I've now found the UK version of the same quiz. Unsurprisingly, I got these results:
http://uk.isidewith.com/results-image/529495590.jpg

Basic introduction to parties:
Labour - Left wing.
Conservatives - Right wing.
Liberal Democrats - Centre Left.
UKIP - Right wing, want to leave EU.
Scottish Nationals - Left wing, want scottish independence.
Green - Left wing, environmentalists.
Plaid Cymru - Left wing, Welsh nationalists.
BNP - Right wing, want to kick out all the immigrants.

Well, it's a good thing you aren't another BNP nutjob.

Centre-Right for me then. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the British right wing is far different from American right wing politics?

Yes, I think that in general our parties are more left wing than in the USA.

I have no idea how accurate this is. A lot of the questions I didn't know what the context was, like existing tax rates or programs. Other political stuff, like relative devolution of representative bodies from the government or how the system is structured, I'm also likewise ignorant about. Anyone want to interpret these results?

The parties nearer the top of your list are more centre left, (Lib Dems, Green) with the more left wing parties (Labour, SNP, Plaid Cymru) below them, and the right wingers (Conservatives, UKIP, BNP) below them.

Not shown is the fact that I think the Conservatives are considerably more competent than either Labour or the Lib Dems, the Greens are risky and UKIP and the BNP (with whom I shockingly share 17% and 19%, respectively, of my opinions) are stark raving lunatics.

Yeah, it's not exactly the golden age of British politics.
