A name change for the Front National party could do some good

Bloomberg says the Front National in France is planning to change the party name, if it helps make the party feel more welcome to people who considered it tarnished by Jean-Marie Le Pen when he was overlord:
Marine Le Pen, still reeling after last year’s French presidential defeat, is pushing to rebrand the National Front and seek alliances to revive her far-right, anti-establishment party.

“If we are changing the National Front today, then we also need to change the name,” Le Pen said Sunday at a press conference in Alencon, north-western France, according to Agence France-Presse. An internal poll shows a majority within the party favor a name change and, if the early feedback is confirmed, militants will vote for a new name at a March 11 congress, she said.

“We can’t think in terms of nostalgia,” Le Pen said. “A political party is a tool that must serve to win power.” She praised recent electoral victories by far-right parties in Poland, Hungary and Austria, according to AFP.
Oh, and just look at how Bloomberg's hell-bent on using terms like "militants" and "far-right" for this particular case. In other words, they want to lump FN as it stands today in with jihadists? It wouldn't be shocking if that's how they think.

A change for party name could be helpful, so let's hope they do it as soon as possible.
