When Nigel Farage got re-elected as Leader of UKIP there was a distinct move in UKIP, for a time, to portray itself as being, at least to some extent, an English nationalist party. 

Given the various dirty tricks and other activities that were going on with UKIP at the time against us, it seemed obvious to the English Democrats’ National Council that these moves were just designed to undermine the English Democrats, rather than a genuine change of heart.

Over the years since we have had various people say to us that UKIP is an English nationalist party and try to persuade us that we should therefore join forces.

It is obvious from looking at Twitter, Facebook and the internet generally that there are a great many others out there who had also thought of UKIP as being an English nationalist party.

During the course of this General Election the scales should have fallen from all those peoples’ eyes as UKIP has shown itself to be very clearly not an English nationalist party. Nigel Farage has even expressly denied being an English nationalist (and, indeed, even a British nationalist, no doubt to the somewhat surprise of his British nationalist members!).

Not only has Nigel Farage’s new UKIP (British) manifesto very limited mention of England or the English, but their slogan in this election was “Believe in Britain”. Also despite clear commitments in the past to produce an English manifesto it has not been produced. In stark contrast they did launch a Scottish-only manifesto. Last, but not least, we have had a series of very clear remarks from others in the leadership of UKIP that they are British Unionists and not about English nationalism at all.

Probably the clearest example is the comments of David Coburn MEP, who before he became elected as an MEP had for many years been UKIP’s principal organiser in London. Click here for a link to YouTube where we have recorded his very clear answer as to where UKIP’s national loyalties lie >>>

In fact, of course, nobody should have been surprised, the answer was always in UKip’s name! I wonder if people would have understood that more easily if they had called themselves BRITKIP?

What do you think?


  1. On Monday May the 4th, on BBC Radio 4's 'World at One' election phone-in, Nigel Farage made it clear that he at least is not any kind of nationalist. He doesn't want the UK governed from Brussels, but he does want it governed from Wall Street and Mumbai. He is not a nationalist but a globalist.
    As was noted earlier, Farage is a City/Wall Street stooge who believes that England must no longer be England and English, but be ruled from abroad and multicultural.


  2. UKIP has, rather cleverly, nicked all our Unique Selling Points and incorporated them into its manifesto, thereby rendering itself virtually inditinguishable from us.
    Our local UKIP candidate advertised scrapping tuition fees in its shop/headquarters in the centre of town. Also, amongst assorted puppets and soft toys in the window, was a teddy-bear with a St Geoge's Cross on its pad and "England" football-supporter's shirt.
    Of course, a promise about tuition-fees is as empty as Cameron's promise to deal with Elf 'n' Safety excesses but it looks good in an election campaign.Farage is now talking about phasing out the Barnett Formula as Scotland takes control of its own taxation.
    None of these wheezes or any others alters one iniquitous fact. Whilst the Scots have their own Scottish government, elected by Scots to serve Scotland and the Welsh have their own Welsh government, elected by the Welsh to serve Wales, we have to make do with the British government whose principal preoccupation is pandering to the Scots, in the hope of keeping the sticky-tape in place which currently holds their precious "Union" together.

  3. UKIP is indeed a British unionist party which flirts with English concerns and issues when it suits its purposes to do so for short term political advantage. I doubt we would ever see "Believe in England" on one of UKIP's leaflets - perhaps the English Democrats could make use of such a slogan.

    1. Nice one Steve. - 'We believe England' (?), i.e 'English Democrats - We believe in England'
