Progressive Commons of Australia !
Im sorry but none of these ideas reach me at all. I am totally 100% in favour of retaining the name Pirate Party in line with our international comrades
I am new to the Pirate Party, having been brought on board by the name. But I quite like the sound of the Open Party of Australia, or OPAu for short.
Gives me images of a party free from corruption or people using it for personal gain.
Vote MAD. Yeah. I can run with that. I'm halfway there as Mad Pirate Gator in Twitter.
So phone polling would be BOOTY calls?
How about Free & Open Party?
Australian Copyright Reform Party? I know that makes us a single issue party, but it's the core of what we are here about and easy for others to understand.Public Domain Party?Again, speaks to a core issue, while having a little more breadth of possibility.
What about the people's party?
Already (sort of) taken: Australian Peoples Party
To me, Transparency, Liberty and Digital Reform Party sounds like one of the best suggestions so far.
We're here for the long haul and we'll bring in the youngsters.
TL;DR? Oh, that's sweet!
None of those parties were/are successful. All require someone elses coat tails to ride to success on. Combined with a crooked electoral distribution system. If people want a centrist party or a multi-faced broad spectrum party - join one but dont change the PP to meet your needs.
The so called joke name Pirate is what will get us noticed. Centrist policies and party names will only lead to oblivion.
