Et tu, Monte Solberg?

Monte Solberg, a former cabinet minister in Canada's NEW Government (TM), lectures the New Democratic Party on why they're not that New.

So, the New Democratic Party is considering a name change.

Good.

Organizations that have hung around for decades don't usually get away with calling themselves "new," except in a relative way.

For instance New England will always be much newer than England, so it still works.

Monte and I love irony.

Well, they are still newer than the Democratic Party, so under Monte's logic, it's valid.

Calgarygrit said exactly what I was thinking when I read Monte's piece. Failure of logic...
