PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE AND DIARISING
English Fools Day Demonstration 1st April
The English Democrats are organising a demonstration on April 1st in Whitehall, London outside the Department of (English) Health in protest over continued unfair Prescription Charges - which are going up again on that day in England!
The English Democrats’ Demonstration will take place on Monday April 1st at 10am to 1.00 pm at Dept of (English) Health, Richmond House, Whitehall, London, SW1A 2NS.
The English are now the last nation within the UK not to have free prescriptions as the Scots, Welsh and Northern Irish have all got free prescriptions for all their people. To add insult to injury the Government has announced that it will be putting up the prescription charges from £7.65 to £7.85 in England only.
The cost of NHS prescriptions in England will rise 20p to £7.85 from 1st April. Not only are we English the April fools to allow this but the British government is imposing this as their idea of an Easter present!
Doctors leaders have already said the current system is unfair and needs to be reformed in England – the English Democrats agree.
A British Medical Association spokesperson said last year that the current system needs reforming:-
“It’s unfair for patients as whether you pay depends not only on what part of the UK you live in, but also on what kind of condition you have. The bureaucracy to administer the charging and exemption regime is also cumbersome and costly. The BMA believes it would be best to abolish prescription charges in England altogether.”
English Democrats’ Chairman, Robin Tilbrook, said:- “We agree whole-heartedly with the BMA. Prescription charges should be scrapped in England – just like they have been in the rest of the UK. This is just another example of the anti-English bias of a British government hell bent on profiteering from English taxpayers. The English Democrats are committed to fighting this kind of injustice and getting fair and equal treatment for the English”.
We are attaching a graphic ilustration of this discrimination.

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!)
