I can only assume that those people who
don't happen to like
the prospect of the UTV name being killed off at any point ever think that by stating for a "fact" that they've looked into their crystal ball and that they "know" that it "definately" will "never" be killed off (for make-it-up-as-you-go-along "reasons" such as because it's not yet happened within a certain timescale (that they alone have invented, and isn't determined by e.g. any true insider knowledge etc)), that will somehow make it true.
I make no claim to "know" for a fact of any plans that ITV plc may or may not have about ditching the UTV name in the future. It's just difficult to imagine that a consolidated entity such as ITV plc wouldn't ultimately want everything that they own to be absorbed under the parent brand. I'm prepared to be proved wrong, but think it highly unlikely that the UTV name will still be going in, say, 5-10 years' time.
Oh, look... I can manage to say things like "I'm prepared to be proved wrong", as opposed to being all arrogant shout-you-down bluster and opinion-as-"fact" (which is how those who are so convinced that the UTV name will
go seem to exclusively express themselves. Like a right buch of Nigel Farages).
