Ok, so setting up a new political party think tank and not googling the name so see what else comes up isn't the best idea in the world, in fact given the amount of attention it got at the time here it resulted in Marc Coleman himself engaging on Politics.ie to defend accusations of his new organisation being all kinds of unpleasant things.

The criticism, whilst offensive I'm sure, wasn't without merit. A quick Google of "National Alliance" gives the first result as a organisation which in the description says "ideology and news commentary from a White racial perceptive". Lovely.

So after just one week, one (poorly reported) press launch and after a long hard think it's already undergone a change.

Whilst it still has that weird logo which appears to be a combination of an ice-cream, the Tory logo and and a long-time obsession of Coleman, an easter lilly, it's undergone a name-change.

The National Alliance has now become The National Forum.

They couldn't do a google search! They couldn't organise a press conference. Who is behind them? Brian Cowen? :lol::lol::lol:

National Forum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

National Forum is a political party in Georgia, formed on December 15, 2006.


Georgia has some great names for political parties, including 'Industry Will Save Georgia' and 'Intellectuals League of Georgia'. Of particular interest to Coleman and Co. might be 'On Our Own Party' or 'Union of Georgian Traditionalists'. One classic alternative is the People's Front of Georgia, not to be confused with you-know-who.

You're some moron. You'd think you'd be more focused on getting Sleeping Tiger, Hidden Enda out front of a microphone and acting like a real opposition leader rather than sitting behind your keyboard slagging Coleman's group. But no...

Oh man, I so wish these geniuses were left-of-centre and not right-of-centre and we might have had the glorious gift from God that would have been: National Socialists. They would not have been happy after Googling that.

Slightly behind the curve on this Dave - they announced the 'rebranding' last week. But as I've said on Twitter and some other places a Tri-Colour flame and a name like 'National Alliance' are hardly innocuous symbols in the European context, nor would they be out of place with Coleman's alleged hard-right stance on social issues.

They're not wildly different, are they?

It really is hard to take them seriously when they do this. Nothing to do with accusations of facsism, but really just a sign of a lack of cop-on.

I hope Pat Kenny questions Coleman over his bubble era policy of reducing stamp duty (which would have increased the bubble even more).

Stop knocking someone that is trying to offer a real change, I might to agree to their policies but im glad to see someone giving it a go.

They are using the graphic of the former neo-fascist Italian monarchist party Movimento Sociale Italiano! :D:D

Oh dear God. This gets funnier and funnier.

They do know what the former Italian crown Prince, the Prince of Naples, was allegedly involved in, don't they? I don't think Marc and David Quinn would . . . em . . . approve. Prost*t*tion. (Guess the word!)

ROTFLMAO
