Farage plans name switch af­ter elec­tion

Yorkshire Post - - POLITICS & ECONOMY -

THE Brexit Party could be trans­formed into the “re­form party” if the UK leaves the EU on Jan­uary 31, party leader Nigel Farage has sug­gested.

Mr Farage said on Sky News’s So­phy Ridge on Sun­day he had al­ready reg­is­tered the name as he added it would “have to cam­paign to change pol­i­tics for good”.

Asked what would hap­pen to the Brexit Party if the UK leaves the EU on Jan­uary 31, he said: “It’ll have to re­form into the ‘re­form party’, it’ll have to cam­paign to change pol­i­tics for good, get rid of the House of Lords, change the vot­ing sys­tem. So much to do and again you’ll see on Thurs­day a turnout much lower than the pun­dits ex­pect be­cause peo­ple have lost faith in pol­i­tics.”

Asked if the Re­form Party was a pos­si­ble new name, he added: “Ab­so­lutely, I’ve reg­is­tered it al­ready.”
