New Ulster Tory Logos…

Here’s the banner of the Joint Committee’s existing site. But that hasn’t/shouldn’t stop the more creative of you… Here’s Keith’s…

Paul thinks they should go simple and more straightforward:

And Plastic Paddy has less a logo and more a graphic concept document:

    Maybe they could commandeer the star trek logo? The name is like an awful spin off movie – They should have gone for ‘Ulster Unionist and Conservatives in Deep Space 9 – the Final Frontier’

    I needed a double take there, it looks uncannily like “ucunt”.

  • Richard James

    I’m in love with the first one.

  • The poor UUP must be gritting their teeth about all the green in the Tory logo.

    From Brian’s link:

    On that November evening (1981), around 300 loyalists, many wearing masks and combat jackets and carrying cudgels, sealed off the overwhelmingly Protestant village of Kells…

    Pure fiction.

    it was sammy etc said at the start that nationalists should just sit back and enjoy this unionist fragmentation and all the contradictions it would bring out.. well how right he was and how wrong i was to fear all this..nice new non sectarian unionists with the words Ulster and Force in their title… YOU COULD NOT MAKE IT UP

    So much for Reggie and his battle to keep ‘Ulster’ in the New Farce’s name.

    Hasn’t even existed for 24 hours and its already been dropped:

    Isnt ‘Ulster unionism’ an oxymoron – surely unionists are interest in being part of the UK?
    Isnt that the logic of Conservatives and Unionists?

    Disagree strongly. The UK would not be the UK without the unique heritage that is brought to it throughout all its constituent regions – English North East, English NW, English South, West Country/Cornish, Welsh, Scottish and Irish, etc. Ulster and Irish heritage are brought into British culture through the union of Northern Ireland with Great Britain, and thoroughly increase the richness and diversity that defines Britishness.

    It seems that they are planning to overflow Lough Neagh by filling it to the brim with green sludge recovered from pub toilets on the morning after St Patrick’s Day. Disgusting! They must not be allowed to get away with it!

  • Ex UUP now voting Tory

    Take your point Jack M but it is surely anti British and anti Unionist to wish to stay outside the party politcal system of the UK? – This is what sets NI apart so the Conservative and Unionist development is surely a good thing?

  • Ex UUP now voting Tory

    Got to hand it to the Tories however their branding is better than the local parties

    Ex UUP now voting Tory,

    I agree wholeheartedly. This is an excellent move and there should be complete involvement with the UK system, but that does not mean that the more local identity should be brushed aside. I just don’t like the name ‘Conservatives and Unionists’ for promoting them here – it’s as if the UUP have been brushed aside completely. We have the ‘Scottish Conservatives’ and ‘Welsh Conservatives’, so why not the ‘Ulster Conservatives’, a name which also pays homage to their UUP roots here?

  • Plastic Paddy

    We have the ‘Scottish Conservatives’ and ‘Welsh Conservatives’, so why not the ‘Ulster Conservatives’

    Because of one little inconvenient truth – the party is organized in Northern Ireland, not throughout Ulster.

    Taken one step further, they would be the “Irish Conservatives and Unionists.”

    (Must we play these semantic games ad nauseum?)

  • Plastic Paddy

    . . . and where in Ulster would one go to volunteer for this “new force“?

    Maybe they should have settled on Northern Ireland Conservatives and Unionists?
