The Labour Party has announced that it plans to formally change its name to ‘Undecided’ in an effort to increase its level of support. The decision was first conveyed to Labour Party members via an email, which noted that ‘Undecided’ has been consistently polling better with the public than the ‘Labour Party’ over the last few years.
As such the email stated that it was ‘an easy decision’ to change the party’s name to ‘Undecided’ which ‘all the evidence suggests connects better with the electorate’.
The decision appears to be based on a number of recent polls, in which ‘Undecided’ was the most common answer people selected when asked who they would vote for behind only ‘Conservative Party’. A Labour source admitted that the party had investigated changing its ‘Conservative Party’, the most popular option, but ‘unfortunately it turned out this name was already taken’.
Speaking anonymously a senior Labour figure told The Spark that the party had decided that to gain support it should either change its name to ‘Undecided’, or come up with a coherent economic policy. After internal debate it was decided that a name change was by far the easier of the two options.
