ALL EU NOMINATIONS IN FOR THE ENGLISH DEMOCRATS!
This is the text of our Press Release:-
The English Democrats are pleased to announce that all 60 of our candidates for the EU Parliamentary Elections, which will be taking place on the 22nd May, have now been accepted as valid nominations by the Regional Returning Officers. The English Democrats are standing in all 9 of the English EU Parliamentary Constituencies which means that the English Democrats have put up a “full slate” of candidates for the second time running.
In the last EU elections in 2009 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).
Robin Tilbrook, Chairman of the English Democrats and the Party’s National Election Agent said:- “I am delighted that yet again the English Democrats have managed to stand a full slate of candidates across England. That means that every English voter will have a chance to vote for the English Democrats and for the only genuine English nationalist party. England has been very poorly served for many years by our increasingly ineffectual, self-interested and careerist British Establishment political class. It is time that England was properly represented politically by our own political party now that Scotland has the SNP and Wales has Plaid Cymru, it is time that English nationalism was properly represented too!”
Robin added:- “If just 4% of the electorate vote for the English Democrats then we will get some MEP’s elected. In recent elections our percentages have been increasing in line with peoples increasing awareness of their English national identity. The 2011 Census results showed that over 60%, that is over 32 million people consider themselves to be “English Only” and not “British”. England needs independence from the tired old Union, just as much as Scotland and Wales do!”
