Are the Lib Dems due a rebrand? Next leader favourite Tim Farron hints party could change name to just ‘the Liberals’ – General Election 2015 – UK Politics – The Independent

If Tim Farron thinks a rebrand is going to lift his party out of its woes, he can think again – and a more appropriate name-change, after their behaviour over the last five years, would be “The Whigs” (look them up).

Come to that, the paper that published this story could do with a rebrand, after supporting the current party of government. Surely The Independent should now title itself The Conservative?

The Lib Dems are in turmoil after a disastrous general election and the resignation of their leader Nick Clegg – but could the front runner to replace him have come up with the way to turn things around?

    A simple name change will not get them back to the good (in their view maybe) old days of Whigs ‘n’ Tories running things. A reasonable party dragged down by the personal ambition of their leaders.

    The Lib-Dems were well and truly thrashed by the electorate for collaborating with the Nasty Party. Unfortunately, by punishing them their supporters have also helped to land us all with five years of undiluted Tories.

    I think the Lib/Dems should join with the Labour Party…..they are not to far apart in policies.

      I think Labour should have nothing to do with any other party – especially the LDs!
