Statement by the English Democrats' Chairman on the budget
It is very disappointing to see the British Government yet again using its position over England to pick on the English by disadvantaging English students by entirely removing grants when these are still available in Scotland and Wales. The attitude displayed is of contempt for the English People who are just seemingly viewed as the source of all the cash that the British Establishment chooses (all too often) to waste elsewhere.
Also George Osbourne’s much trumpeted “English Devolution” is of course nothing of the sort. It is not the national Devolution which has been given to the Scots and Welsh. It is merely a little measure of mere decentralisation introduced, ironically on a top down basis, by the most over centralised State in Europe.
