    In the UK it can appear that there is only one political issue being discussed - Brexit. But research suggesting the existence of six European "tribes" points towards the benefits a more varied debate could bring across the EU.

    The refugee crisis, the rise of populist parties across Europe and the UK's vote for Brexit have all sparked intense debate about the future of the EU in recent years.

    Often, people are considered to be on one side of an argument or the other: Leave or Remain, for example.

    But our analysis of a poll of more than 10,000 people across 10 European countries, carried out in December 2016 and January 2017 for Chatham House, suggests far greater diversity - and the existence of six distinct political "tribes".

    Here's an interactive quiz so you can check which "tribe" you belong to.

  • I did the quizz. I am from the EU Ejectors Tribe. I scored 88% likeness to this wonderful political ethnicity. Here's to us! :love:

  • I am a 100% EU Ejector and proud of it. 8)

    Young boys in the park jumpers for goalpost that's what footballs all about isn't it.

  • Also 100% Ejector. BTW I had to allow scripts for the quiz to work properly.

    History is much like an Endless Waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever.

  • Ssshh: keep this quiet as I wouldn't want to out myself (:D) but despite voting Brexit, I am overall in favour of the ideal, rather than the actual implementation, of the EU.

    So, what option am I?
