What’s in a Name?


During the leadership campaign over the pond, David Cameron talked about changing the Conservative party’s name in order to get across the way it has changed. In this, he echoes Tony Blair, who turned Labour into New Labour. He dropped the hint that the change would be the addition of a word.

Within minutes of his election, had the new name up: Cameron’s Conservatives.

I think this is quite brilliant.
