Paul Goodman, Head Lar of the ConHome web-site, has this:
In today’s Sun (£), Robert Halfon publishes his own prospectus, urging that the Tories rename themselves the Workers’ Party, offer free membership to trade unionists, value public sector workers, cut taxes for lower earners, and so on.
For the record, some believe The Sun is a newspaper.
Robert Halfon is the MP for Harlow, which is a natural “swing” seat. His majority is less than 5,000. He puts himself about quite a bit. There may be a connection between those previous three sentences.
Exeter University, presumably on the basis of some intellectual evidence, awarded Halfon a B.A. in Politics and a M.A. in Russian and East European politics.
Back in 1982 the “Sticky” wing of Sinn Féin adopted the name, so Páirtí na nOibrithe has a lien on the name “Workers Party”. Clearly nobody pointed this salient detail out to Halfon, or his political studies did not extend to the island next-door. This is not irrelevant: though the apostrophe seems to come-and-go from one occasion to the next, John Lowry and others operate under the name within the UK jurisdiction.
Using the name might be deemed “passing off“:
The law of passing off prevents one trader from misrepresenting goods or services as being the goods and services of another, and also prevents a trader from holding out his or her goods or services as having some association or connection with another when this is not true.
Does this qualify as further evidence of the “Stupid Party”?
