Yes, I think that when ever we have these discussions.
Generally, in Europe, for 'conservative', read 'right-wing racist biggot', for 'liberal' read 'middle class intellectual' and everyone to the left is a socialist, ie, votes Labour. Things have become a lot more blurred in the last ten years or so, though.
There is an old saying in British politics which, I think, expresses BigTennisFan's point:
"If your not a Socialist at twenty, you haven't got a heart; if your not a conservative at thirty, you haven't got a head."
I've never been either, so I obviously have an abundance of both!
