Nickname[edit]

I am adding a reference to his recently-adopted nickname, "The Borg". The nickname has a significant relation to his political revival and is demonstrated on both his website and as his YouTube channel.
Website: http://www.springborg.com/eight-things-you-may-not-know-about-lawrence/393.html
YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/theborg09
Not to mention the plethora of mentions in articles about him.
Courier Mail: http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,25097110-5018787,00.html
Brisbane Times: http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/news/queensland/the-borg-is-back/2008/02/20/1203467166983.html
And not to mention its inclusion in the campaign slogans:
The Borg is back: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_9kpgZypn8RE/R7waTDa_vXI/AAAAAAAAAC4/5f0zr02AbUA/s1600-h/470borg.jpg
I Love The Borg: http://images.whereilive.com.au/images/uploads/f9a2058006385d39adf539f73c5956b6_resized.JPG

I am placing this argument here, as there seems to be some contention about the validity of that as a nickname. I only hope that these comments are read here first, before reverting any edits relating to this. 202.63.54.126 (talk) 13:56, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

While this is a prefectly reasonable addition to the article, I'm not convinced that converting The Borg from a redirect page to a DAB page is necessary. This change has been reverted by several editors. Before it's made again we need to come to some consensus here.--Rtphokie (talk) 16:22, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
