Demands to rename political parties ‘Goodies’ and ‘Baddies’ gain support

A demand to rename the main political parties ‘Goodies’ and ‘Baddies’ is gaining support throughout the political spectrum.

It is thought that the traditional names of the parties are too ambiguous and don’t really give any indication of who people should vote for.

“I think that if you understand politics then it’s clear which party is decent, altruistic, and has the best interests of the country at heart and which party is just all about self-interest and couldn’t care about anyone as long as they get themselves on telly,” said Simon Williams, who has proposed the name change.

“But if you’re just some normal bloke who works in a factory and goes down the pub, then you probably don’t really understand politics and need some help when it comes to deciding who to votes for.

“Calling the parties ‘Goodies’ and ‘Baddies’ is really going to help that man out.”

It has also been suggested that the ‘Goodies’ and ‘Baddies’ parties adopt halo and devil logos as part of the branding.

“Well, anything that helps, frankly,” continued Mr Williams.

“The next few years are going to be crucial for the future of this country and we need to make it as clear as possible to people who don’t really understand politics who they should be voting for.”

Mr Williams has other ideas for reform.

“Well, I think that if renaming the parties still doesn’t make people vote correctly, then we introduce some form of qualifying exam so that only people who really understand politics can vote.

“It’s the only way to be sure.”
