Competition: Name My New Telegraph TV Programme!

Later on in May I will be presenting a brand new - but as yet unnamed - weekly programme on Telegraph TV. I'd like your help in coming up with a suitable name, and to encourage you to take part I'll give a full set of the Margaret Thatcher DVDs, together with a limited edition Thatcher T Shirt to anyone who comes up with the name we finally go for. Can't say fairer than that, can I?

The essence of the programme is that I will be travelling round the country talking to Tory candidates and activists about what's going on in their area, campaigns they are undertaking, what they are making of the national scene or the internal machinations of the Tory Party itself. Like HEFFER CONFRONTED, it will be part of the RIGHT ON programme but also available as a standalone item. The first one will hopefully be shown on May 20 or 27. The task of confronting Mr Heffer each week will now fall to some other hapless victim!

If you've got ideas for places I should go and people I should meet feel free to email me.

Nulab you must leave now, take what you need
you think will last.
But whatever you wish to keep
you better grab it fast

Yonder stands your PM with his gun
Crying like a fire in the sun.

Look out, the saints are comin' through!
And it's all over now, Cos we're Blue

Well done Mrs. Dale.

Makes you wonder why BA wasted millions on their tail planes and Gordon on his Nazi Logo.

Perhaps HMG should hold compos for good ideas rather than frittering away good dosh on think tanks.

On a serious note, why not involve everyone throughout a government's term rather than making them beholden to an election eve poromise?

You could call it "Dave" ... ah, too late, UKTV have already got it. Conservative Voice? Damn, that's been taken as well.

Hi Iain

How about "ForthRight"?

Combines ideas of moving forward, etc, with the fact you'll be asking people for their thoughts and opinions.

Just a thought...

Gary Elsby stoke said...

How about calling it 'Shameless'.

A well known tv series of an estate full of drunken druggies,indulging in perverted sexual encounters,would go down well for a Tory TV programme.

They aren't using it for a few Months and maybe it will suit quite well if you interview, Archer, Aitken and Mellor.

63 posts and counting and still not one good idea.

I have to say if you cannot come up with something better than 'Heffer Confronted' I would pull the whole damn thing.

Oh, OK, how about 'Constituancy Beat'? or, if you want to save on typeface - 'Local Beat'?

Or somesuch.

Right Here - Right Now

verity said...

I like Ian's best. Right Here. Right Now.

People have to be reminded of how much they hate the left, and that there is a right.

Also, it is taking control of territory, the right, that the socialists have worked to make into a leper colony. Time to reclaim it, with bells and whistles. (And undo the socialist lie that Hitler was on the far right when actually, he was a screaming leftist. Like Mao. And Stalin.)

verity said...

I strangely lost my comment off the screen. Anyway, I voted for Ian's Right Here. Right Now.

V clever because it reclaims the use of the word 'Right', which the communists have tried to trash. We must never forget that Hitler, Stalin and Mao were on the Left, not the Right.

Dave Cole said...

Is 'The Iain Dale Show' too obvious?

What about:

"I can't believe it's not Thatcher!"

"The Good, the Bad and the Tory"

"Dial D for Dale"

"Citizen Dale"

Iain list(s) the top twelve/ Daley's dozen & then we all have a vote on it ...... & Iain then unilaterally decides on something completely different!!!
