A name change to the National Front could be helpful

Marine Le Pen's said that changing the party name could come as a great help for improving their public image:
France's Marine Le Pen said Tuesday that her far-right National Front needed to change "many things", including its name, as part of a radical overhaul after poor performances in two elections.

[...] "There are many things to change but first of all we must consult our members," Le Pen said, adding that a questionnaire would be sent to the membership, "probably in September".

The results of the poll will serve as the basis for the "refounding" of the party at a congress in March 2018, she told France Info radio.

Asked whether the party's name -- still associated for some with the anti-Semitism and overt racism of her father, former FN leader Jean-Marie Le Pen -- was a millstone, she said: "Yes, I think so.

"It does not encourage unity beyond the party," she said, adding that France's changing political landscape called for a new name.

Le Pen, 48, had already floated the idea of a reset of the FN on the night of her defeat by 39-year-old Macron, saying she wanted to form a political home for "all patriots".
She's got a good idea to change the party name, and the sooner it's done, the better. Nigel Farage over in Britain thought it a good idea too. That way, it's but one step towards building a better image.
