Nigel Farage's United Kingdom Independence Party (Ukip) has dashed speculation that it could be forced to change its name if Scots back independence next week.
People have been joking about it on Twitter, and one letter writer asked in the Telegraph today: "What will Nigel Farage call his party if there is no United Kingdom?"
Scotland:Someone points out that, In the event of yes vote, Ukip will need to look for a name change. Hmm.....— David Phipps (@WitteringWitney) September 11, 2014
Here's an issue regarding #scottishindependence nobody has thought of. If they vote Yes next week, Ukip will have to change its name.— Paul Owen (@mrpaulowen) September 10, 2014
A Ukip spokesman told the Huffington Post UK that the party's name would stay the same, as "the United Kingdom is Great Britain and Northern Ireland, so the question is not relevant."
"Scotland is part of Great Britain, a geographic and political entity," he added. "A little history would help."
"As the only party with elected representation in all 4 home nations, we take the UK very seriously."
Ukip would in theory not need to change its name as it would still campaign for a United Kingdom to leave the European Union, albeit one comprised of just three countries England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
