UK no more

I see UKIP is now to be IP:
The UK Independence Party is today preparing to change its name as part of a re-branding exercise designed to woo large numbers of Conservatives disaffected with David Cameron.

As part of an assault on the Tories, the ruling executive of the anti-Brussels party is expected to approve plans to promote itself as the Independence Party for the local elections on May 3.

Is there more to this than meets the eye? Perhaps they're planning to become an English Independence Party.

(Incidentally, being anti-rule from Brussels doesn't necessarily make one anti-Brussels.)

They'd better not turn into an English Independence Party. 
Who on earth would we vote for then?

UKIP, or IP, or whatever they are these days, are pro-English Parliament, I believe, but also pro-Union.

An EIP would be a hilarious sideshow. It would expose the yawningh gaulf betwixt the green ink brigade and those in real power and £ in the British State. 
Ssssh dont tell them but there is an English Parliament (its called Westminster).
