English Democrats woo ex-Labour and ex-Liberal Democrat voters.In the Eastleigh by-election the English Democrats’ are delighted to announce our candidate Michael Walters.
Michael Walters is an English Democrats' county Chairman, he was our Dover 2010 general election candidate (when Labour was planning on selling off Dover Harbour to the French!).
A popular member of the English Democrats he is a member of the Royal British Legion Riders Branch and poppy tin Distributor, having served in the R.O.C. in the seventies when he was trained in nuclear defence.
A committed Anglican he has been a Christian Aid doorstep collector for the last twenty years, a Parochial Church Council member and 'Churches Together' representative.
Michael joined the SDP (Social Democrats Party) in 1984 at the Crosby by-election and also campaigned for the SDP in Glasgow Hillhead. He is an ex-Liberal Democrat constituency party chairman and election agent. Michael left the Lib Dems in 2002 after being ordered by the Gravesham party to remove the word “Christian” from his County Council leaflet! He was also concerned by their growing anti-English stance and so joined the English Democrats.
Robin Tilbrook said:- “In the November Police Commissioner election in South Yorkshire we came within a whisker of winning – we would have done so if second preferences had come into play. Interestingly most Labour voters had put English Democrats as their second preference and also so had most Liberal Democrat voters”.
Robin said:- “We are aiming to replace the Liberal Democrats as the choice for those voters who have noticed that the British Political Establishment does not have any regard for England’s needs. It is significant that our candidate, Michael Walters, has previously been a Liberal Democrat.”
Robin asked:- “If we can persuade a great activist like Michael Walters to come over to us – why not almost all patriotic Liberal Democrat and Labour voters as the process of devolution reminds the English people of their Englishness? In the 2011 Census over 32 million people in England stated that their National Identity is “English Only”. In the Eastleigh Council area it was 65.6% or 82,146 people. English Nationalism is rising and will eventually sweep away those politicians and parties who stand against it."

Key facts about the English Democrats
The English Democrats launched in 2002. The English Democrats are the English nationalist Party which campaigns for a Parliament for England, First Minister and Government, with at least the same powers as the Scottish ones within a Federal UK; for St George’s Day to be England’s National holiday; for Jerusalem to be England’s National Anthem; for a Referendum to leave the EU; for an end to mass immigration; for the Cross of St George to be flown on all public buildings in England.
The English Democrats are England’s answer to the Scottish National Party and Plaid Cymru.
The English Democrats’ greatest electoral successes to date include winning the Directly Elected Executive Mayoralty of Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council and the 2012 referendum; We won the referendum which triggered a referendum to give Salford City an Elected Mayor; In 2012 we saved all our deposits in the Police Commissioner elections and came second in South Yorkshire; In the 2009 EU election we gained 279,801 votes after a total EU campaign spend of less than £25,000 (giving the English Democrats by far the most cost efficient electoral result of any serious Party in the UK!)
