UKIP Re-branding – Guido’s Logo Suggestions

UKIP are kicking off conference season this week, and have announced they will be re-branding and dropping the pound sign from their logo – apparently that battle has been won. Tim Montgomerie has been bandying about ideas for a new design. According to the Telegraph the party have drafted a “friendly design consultancy is helping the party”. Guido’s done their work for them:

Obviously the old freedom torch introduced by Margaret Thatcher in 1987 has an obvious appeal, though UKIP have to be careful not to put off the 20-25% of supporters who are previous Labour voters. Guido’s personal politically correct gender-balanced suggestion would be Boadicea – the historic heroine of those fighting occupying forces from Europe. Or why not a swan?

    Interview with a leftie says:

    Q: Isn’t it shocking how these muslims are protesting so violently?

    A: No! They’re right to be angry! Once again the West is attacking Islam, a religion of p*ace!

    Q: How can you say it’s a religion of p*ace when they’ve murdered people over a film?

    A: It’s an Islamaphobic film! It attacks their prophet!

    Q: It’s called free speech. What gives them the right to kill anyone? They use free speech to say horrific things about J*ws, non-muslims, women and homosexuals.

    A: We have no right to insult Islam! I fully support their protests!

    Q: Are you aware the Koran says to kill all homosexuals and non-muslims, to beat your wife for disobeying you, that a woman’s word on a matter is worth half that of a man’s, to marry off girls as soon as they begin menstruating, and to stone adulterers and r*pe victims to death?

    A: Don’t be so Islamaphobic!

    Q: I’m just telling you what this religion stands for. Don’t you support women’s rights and gay rights?

    A: Of course I do! How dare you even ask!

    Q: So why do you defend a religion that preaches such misogyny and homophobia?

    A: Why do you defend the West?!

    Q: Don’t change the subject. Why do you never condemn honour killings, female circumcisions, forced marriages, child marriages, suicide bombings, r*pe being used as a punishment for failing to wear a headscarf, and r*pe victims, adulterers and homosexuals being executed?

    A: It’s… it’s… uh… um… it’s the corporations! The corporations and… uh… the corporations and… I*rael!

    Q: Excuse me? I’m asking why you don’t condemn honour killings, r*pe, child marriages…

    A: It’s the corporations! And I*rael! And corporations!

    Q: What are you talking about? What have corporations and I*rael got to do with muslims forcing 9 year olds to marry 60 year old men in P*kistan and muslim girls being circumcised?

    A: You’re Islamaphobic! You support corporations and I*rael!

    Q: What do you say to the family of the US ambassador to Libya who was murdered over a film he had nothing to do with?

    A: Corporations! Corporations!

    How about this?

    The ‘eco-kiddie chic look’ is woefully threadbare, instead of the intended ‘soft conservative’ it was doomed to read ‘soft-in-the-head conservative’ from the very start.
    Lorra-lorra money spent, final result is the uk’s most expensive Artrage doodle.

    The rose has had so many meanings attached to it, hence to us ‘moderns’, it ceases to have any meaning at all. This particular rose looks photocopied from a gardening book & coloured with felt tips.
    I’ll grudgingly accept that this is the ‘least worst’ of the lot, but looks are deceptive: my advice is to watch out for what those fabian fruitloops are cultivating in the potting shed.

    Labour getting back into government is a given. Cameron is too odious/indifferent/incompetent to win. He could barely beat Brown, a deeply-hated man who went on the election trail with “I hate Labour voters” crayoned on his big fat stupid head. More or less.

    A vote for the Conservatives is the wasted vote. They are not going to win. At least if you vote Ukip, you’re sending them a final insult, showing Cameron the same contempt he shows to the people of Britain. When Cameron’s Cons settle back into their opposition comfort-zone, where they belong and where they obviously felt so safe for so long, they’ll sit looking at all the Ukip votes and think, “if were weren’t completely shit, we could have had those votes!”

    And then they’ll self-destruct.

    I’m going to make a serious suggestion here. *derisive laughter* Boadicea is too complicated for a logo. A torch is too Tory-ish. A swan will go down well in Buckinghamshire but doesn’t look very inspiring in the form depicted. But how about a heraldic lion? It is used in the arms of both England and Scotland and was traditionally a symbol of Britain – remember Napoleon starving a lion to death to gratify his urge to beat Britain?

    You could even make it purple (or purpure in heraldic description) to match the current Ukip house colour (even though I find the current shade rather sickly). So, all we have to settle is.. Passant guardant (as in England) Rampant (as in Scotland) or some other pose?

    The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, ‘Father, remember Psalm 129?’

    The priest apologized ‘Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.’

    Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way.

    I think the nub of the issue here is the word Democracy, you have no doubt watched the video where Cameron states quite unequivocally that the British electorate should have a referendum on the EU. Now the argument has been voiced that the Lisbon Treaty was done and dusted before he was elected and he has quite bogusly hidden behind this fact. However recently there was an e-petition demanding a debate on a European referendum and this subsequently took place in the HOC. Nevertheless when it came to a vote on this issue Cameron put down a three-line whip to ensure its defeat thereby proving beyond any doubt that he is an undemocratic liar. Now all opinion polls taken result in an overwhelming percentage of the British electorate are desperate for an in/out referendum and even when he applied his three-line whip in the HOC over 80 of his own MPs defied him and voted for a referendum.
    Clearly then on this issue he is totally ignoring both the electorate and a major number of his own MPs for many that voted to support the whip only did so under duress. His bogus pro referendum announcements before the election went some way to ensuring his win but he has now not only reneged on his views on referenda but also took active steps to ensure that one would not take place.
    At the last election UKIP offered Cameron an opportunity to win all these seats by withdrawing their candidate providing he would carry out his promise of a referendum. Cameron declined and it may well have cost him an overall majority. I realise that with UKIP in the mix the Tories will not only loose the next election but may well remain in the political wilderness for at least a decade. His deceit has cost the Conservative cause a great deal for many are now switching their allegiance not because they are no longer Conservative in outlook but they have lost all trust in the Tory party leadership.
    Cameron can promise and even put into law that we will have a referendum after the next election but it just wont wash for no one will believe him, he is a dyed in the wool Europhile and any referendum held will have the ballot paper choices so worded that make the result a fudge.
    Nothing short of a straight forward in/out referendum BEFORE the next election can save the Conservatives and I for one will never vote Tory whilst we are denied one and many others I know feel the same.
    I accept that UKIP won’t win the election but Cameron deserves to loose and he will by a country mile. UKIP will however win the European elections hands down.
    It will be interesting to see by how much the Tories loose Corby

    Here is a list of all the seats UKIP spoiled for the Tories at the last election and this was before they formed an alliance with the Liberals.
    I cannot see the Tories winning again unless they hold an in/out Referendum on the EU BEFORE the next election.
    Cameron must be stupid if he thinks anyone will believe a promise of referendums after the next election, it’s time he went.

    Do you *really* want to go down that road, pal? I don’t even have to bring up the likes of Mandelson or Shahid Malik or even Tony Blair’s charities. I can just bring up the average Labour member and benefits fraudster, like Milan Radulovic (leader of Labour Party on Broxtowe Council).

    If it’s a contest for corruption, Labour are going to win every single time.

    The Torch would be hard to better. It is symbolic and precise and since Camerons green oak, not many remember it. Its predecessor, the stylised Torch would also be worth considering.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
