I feel that Britain's conservative party is a bit more to the left of the conservatives in the US. They seem like what would be moderates here.


All three main parties leadership (though their MP's and activists are more diverse) favours 0.7% of GDP in aid and liberal interventionism (I think that is the phrase?) and on most matters, the difference between the three parties is small matters and tweaks then on the bigger issues. The EU is the only fundamental disagreement.

Yes, the Tories are generally seen here as rather to the left of the Republicans and quite a few were alleged to be rooting for Obama to beat Romney.

It's really hard to decide where are Conservatives would fit on your system as their view on the NHS for example is more left wing than the Obama-care scheme the Democrats have pushed through.
