I smell a contest coming on

Colin Hansen – uncle to the HST – wants to change the name of the BC Liberals to something more akin to their raison d’etre.

Time for all good women and men to come to the aid of the party.

Let’s help re-name and re-brand.  Post your ideas.  Keep them blog friendly and remember Murder Inc. has been taken.

Then we could do a poll and come up with the winning entry.

Fire away.

    What a great idea. Let’s see, Alberta already has the Wildrose Party and the BC Liberals can only but slavishly follow the right wing of that province. Perhaps Rosebud?

    Fitting that Orson Welles described the use of the name Rosebud in Citizen Kane as “It’s a gimmick, really, a rather tawdry device, a dollar-book Freudian gag” which pretty much sums up what the Hansen inspired exercise is about.

    Might confuse the Marijuana Party voters though.

    About the HPPP: The Higher Purpose People Party. Or, with inspiration from the Arbutus corridor’s Pamela Sauder, The Party de la Creme de la Creme.

    Since the organization shaped by Kinsella and friends is designed strictly for the benefit of the province’s elite citizens, its name should reflect that purpose.

    Well they can’t have BC Conservatives, they are already in the wings and waiting. So maybe the Coalition of ME, meaning they stand for nothing more than what they have for the last decade. Not sure about the acronym ME? There’s a competition Ian, come up with the definition of ME. Meaningless Enterprise Party perhaps, Mean Entity Party or Meaning More Giving Less, yea like that.

    Lies ‘R’ Us.

    Although this is clearly the ‘Remote Control Party’ for all kinds of reasons, including their urgent need to change the channel right now so that the proMedia covering the event will forget they were just watching a show where a shiny, but shoddy, new leader is already starting to fall apart, I still like “The CLAP” best.

    (Conservative Liberal Alliance Party)

    How about the OFF (Our Friends First) Party.

    The Empire (or perhaps that is best reserved for Steveo). That means the 60%+ of Canadians who didn’t vote for him can be the Rebel Alliance!! Cool.

    Social Credit.

  9. ditchdigger says:

    BC Neo-Lieberals. It’s who they are, who they’ll always be.

  10. BC Mary says:

    The CLAP party rings true.

    The OFF party could be improved as the OFO party [oh f. off] party.

    But my preference so far is for Michael Smyth’s suggestion:

    The Witness Protection Party

  11. EV says:

    The Banana Party. You’d have to be a monkey to vote for them

  12. Martin says:

    I like “Corruption Inc.”

    However, I’ll bet they choose something like “The Families First Party”.

  13. islandcynic says:

    BC Shipwreck Party

  14. ronwilton says:

    BC Trainwreck Party

  15. Joe says:

    How about the CCP – Corporate Credit Party, since they’re dedicated to the siphoning public assets into corporate pockets.

  16. Dawn Black says:

    How about “The Cruchables”

  17. Stuart says:

    How about the New Christy Wastrels?

  18. Devinder says:

    How about the 9 lives party ? How the hell they win by-election ? This party should have died with Campbell. Now they have the Christy Clark. Damn BC Liberal Party like Teflon Don’s.
