Have Not's

Just 'cos I'm feeling mischievous...and surprised at how long the Jeremy thread has run.

Should we do away with the old titles of political parties - Conservative, Labour and all the rest, and replace them with something more possibly accurate?
Conservative could be Have's
Labour could be Havent As Much
Greens could be Poor Planet's
Wotsisname...Farage's lot could be Pint Anyone
None voters could be Apathy
Can't think of any more just now, but what do you reckon?
I've avoided going down the route of things like Blair/Bliar, maybe a bit too personal, and that could be a thread all of it's own.

How might you feel being labelled as such? I'd probably fall into the Have's with me free bus pass and pension, I have food (sometimes), a roof over my head (for the time being), heat, my tobacco (though thinking of trying to stop) and probably many other things.
I wonder how it might change us to be labelled as such instead of what we do now?

There was once a political party called Veritas?
What alternative name would you give for that one Terry?

We used to use some backup software at work, called 'Veritas Netbackup'

So an alternative political name could be 'Getbackup'

Perhaps a bit of a small following for that one though, a bit like the party itself.

We could just have two parties, Lying B'stards and B'stard Liars?

Veritas, that rings a bell, I'd totally forgotten about them and to be honest, can't recall a thing about them. What might anyone else suggest for them?

Wasn't Veritas the party started by that Kilroy Silk chap?
