Has the Brexit Party made any statement on its name as a movement, when Brexit is finally resolved?

It would be expected after several years that 'Brexit' will have lost meaning. I can't think of any party in history becoming established and named by a "short-term" issue and going on to having an entrenched long term support or platform to stand on.

    More importantly will Change UK have to change their name if they gain power and want things to then remain the same? – Jontia May 23 at 15:10

    Hi, welcome to the site. It's a good idea to take the Tour and visit the Help Center. I doubt that this question is answerable as it stands, as it requires speculation which could not be verified with sources open to the public. If you can edit it to be more on topic for this site it stands a much better chance of staying open. – CoedRhyfelwr May 23 at 15:18

    Interesting, it is sort of like voting to remove the possibility of someone with knowledge giving an answer based on the uninformed opinion that the knowledge does not exist. – Brian McMahon May 23 at 15:48

    Because you are asking ABOUT THE FUTURE and nobody knows it for sure, specially when dealing with politics. It is as simple as that. You can see that the only answer you get is "they could do it... or they could not do it". – SJuan76 May 23 at 16:23

    I reworded the body in line with your title. It now asks about any statements from within the party. As such, it's less speculative. – JJ for Transparency and Monica May 23 at 17:12

On your chief assumption of the Brexit party becoming a major party:

  • If Brexit does not happen, they keep the name until it does happen, or the topic loses steam politically.
  • If there is some kind of deal that effectively only takes the UK out in name only, but leaves all of the legal ties and responsibilities in place, the party keeps its name until a complete and proper Brexit happens, or the topic loses steam politically.
  • If there is a no-deal Brexit, the party either dissolves completely (job done) or changes its name to some kind of patriotic based title and carries on under a different guise with a heavily modified agenda.

This is all speculation ofcourse based on an uncertain assumption.

  • Have they mentioned the possibility of dissolving if Brexit is brought to a conclusion that is satisfactory to the party? – Brian McMahon May 23 at 15:35

    @BrianMcMahon, I'd be amazed if anybody has thought that far ahead. – ouflak May 23 at 15:41
  • If no-deal Brexit happens being associated with it or considered responsible for the pointless mess would be a PR nightmare. Unless there would be really convincing way of shifting the blame, then such party would have to go into hiding. – Shadow1024 May 25 at 19:49
