Guest speaker at Kings College School, Wimbledon

On Thursday I was the guest of Kings College School, Wimbledon, which is a non-boarding public school.  For those who do not know Wimbledon it is in a very nice part of what is now in effect West London.

As a guest speaker I was following in the footsteps of MPs from the various other parties, including not only the usual ones, but also the SNP and Plaid Cymru and Sinn Fein.

I had been asked to come to talk to the Sixth Form about the politics of English culture and nationalism.

I introduced the topic by going through our exceptionally long history as a united people and nation state.  After the constitutional landmarks I then talked about where we are now using the results of the 2011 Census.

I then got so many interesting questions that I didn’t get to make the speech that I had prepared to make.

It was however interesting to again see from some of the questions that the main challenge to English Nationalism comes from those whose vision is of multi-cultural “Britishness”.

It was nice to be able to reassure those who thought of themselves as being English that theirs is still the majority view in England by showing them the results of the 2011 Census.

For those who consider themselves to be in national identity terms “British only” but who are ethnically English, it was also a pleasure to be able to assure them that they were in a tiny minority in the country!  They are now of course a minority within that minority of less than 30% who consider themselves to be in any sense British!


  1. Anne Macintosh, the MP for Maltby, Thirsk and Filey has been kicked out (de-selected) by her local Tory party association. She intends to stand against the Tories in 2015. Currently, she is thinking of standing as an independent. Might she be persuaded to join the English Democrats?

  2. So, what are the English Democrats doing about the Wythenshawe and Sale East by-election?

  3. The English Democrats should have stood in the by-election of Wythenshawe and Sale East. I am not a very strong supporter of yours but I would rather you take the support from the collapse of the BNP than UKIP. The reason I say this is because your position on the economy is far more sensible and balanced. A mixed economy without excessive globalisation produces more wealth for most people than the globalist model we have now favoured as it is by Tory/New Labour/ Lib Dem and UKIP alike. UKIP have not had enough real competition in my view and if people were to find-out what UKIP REALLY stand for (ie their stance on the economy and public services) I think a lot of people would be horrified and would avoid them except in places like most of Surrey ect.
