Via Matthew Yglesias, who manages to say some pretty silly things in his post, I found a survey that would matter more to me had my fate been slightly different:

Who Should You Vote For?

Who should I vote for?

Your expected outcome:


Your actual outcome:

Labour -43
Conservative -18
Liberal Democrat 51
UK Independence Party 14
Green 32

You should vote: Liberal Democrat

The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places, but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather than ownership.

Take the test at Who Should You Vote For

That's exactly what I thought I'd be (though I clicked the wrong box when it asked me to guess; I clicked conservative, obviously a mistake), a Liberal Democrat. But I didn't think I'd be so extremely anti-Labour, and I thought my support for the Greens would be higher.
