The English Democrats

Key facts about the English Democrats
The English Democrats, launched in 2002, are the only campaigning English Nationalist Party. We campaigned for a referendum for independence for England; for St George’s Day to be England’s National holiday; for Jerusalem to be England’s National Anthem; to leave the EU properly and fully; for an end to mass immigration; for the Cross of St George to be flown on all public buildings in England; and we supported a YES vote for Scottish Independence.

The English Democrats are England’s answer to the Scottish National Party and to Plaid Cymru. The English Democrats’ greatest electoral successes to date include:- in the 2004 EU election we had 130,056 votes; winning the Directly Elected Executive Mayoralty of Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council in 2009 and also the 2012 mayoralty referendum; in the 2009 EU election we gained 279,801 votes after a total EU campaign spend of less than £25,000; we won the 2012 referendum which gave Salford City an Elected Mayor; in 2012 we also saved all our deposits in the Police Commissioner elections and came second in South Yorkshire; and in the 2014 EU election we had 126,024 votes for a total campaign spend of about £40,000 (giving the English Democrats by far the most cost efficient electoral result of any serious Party in the UK!).

In the 2015 General Election we had the 8th largest contingent of candidates in England. In the October 2016 Batley & Spen, Westminster parliamentary, By-election we came second and easily beat all three British national parties.  In the 2017 Greater Manchester Mayoral election we came 5th beating UKIP and the Greens in all but 2 boroughs.  In the 2018 South Yorkshire Mayoral election we had 14,547 votes and saved our deposit and, with a minimal campaign budget achieved 12.8% of the First Preference votes in Doncaster.  In the 2021 Police Commissioner election in Essex we got 42,831 (10%) First Preference votes, plus probably the same again Second Preference votes for by far the lowest campaign spending of all the candidates.

To win such success in the face of Britain’s first past the post electoral system, effectively a two party state whose policies are the same, is a remarkable achievement and a sign that English patriotism is alive and well. Join those who have realised that an English Parliament and Nation are our only hope for the future.

  1. If you were to add to your campaigning aims, Mr. Tilbrook, a free ice-cream for everyone if the temperature reaches (say) 35degC then a small chance there may be of your candidates winning enough votes not to lose their deposits, without the bait of the ice-cream offer you must only live in hope.

  2. What I don’t understand is why there have to be innumerable piddling little political parties competing against each other, instead of a single grand coalition of those who agree about the fundamental political problems and are willing to postpone disagreements about other matters until later.
    The enemies of England can co-operate (as we saw in Batley and Spen not only in 2016 but also in 2021), so why can’t England’s friends?

  3. Robin,
    If I recall correctly, you were leading a legal case against the extension of Article Fifty back in March (?) 2019. Did Nigel Farage show any interest? Lend any support?

    Have you noticed that he has basically played down, almost dismissed, getting to the bottom of the 3 Nov election in the US… I think his recent tour of the US failed to resonate. Thankfully Steve Bannon at War Room Pandemic is absolutely committed to getting to the bottom of 3 Nov, 1/6 ‘insurrection’ , Wuhan and much more.

    Is there a good summary of your 2019 legal case that you could recommend. I hope there will be a thorough investigation some day of all the treason that took place; Gerard Batten was right.

  4. What if “England” is redefined not as the exclusive homeland of the ethnic Engish but as a predominantly Afro-Asian-Mulatto collection of “communities”? How about keeping the Kingdom United, friendly, and predominantly Europid in population and heritage?

  5. Yes, the numbers of votes reported here -for the money spent- are impressively high. And I agree with Robin Tilbrook that these numbers show a deep yearning among the English for a proper England.

        • Two quotes from Aldous Huxley may now be apposite:
          (1) “A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.” (1932)
          (2) “When the masses of coloured races are as well trained and as industrialized as our own, we shall have little or nothing on our side to outweigh their numbers… The white races will be at the mercy of the coloured races, and the superior whites will be at the mercy of their white inferiors.” (1927)
          Isn’t the validity of such observations confirmed precisely because influential people would wish to suppress them and penalise anyone who endorses or even expresses them?

          • Is it really the love of the servitude, David? Could it not be the impotence, the absence of any mechanism, the lack of opportunity of changing anything?

            Short of building barricades, the only way of forcing a change is through the ballot box, but given the grip of the two major parties on the election process, the dreaded FPTP, this avenue has lost its potential years ago. What else is there? Nothing at all, one has to be patient, wait until the current construct implodes.

      • Sadly I fear the majority of the world’s population are considerably more ‘extreme’. But I could be mistaken; how much less extreme would you say, for instance, the oppressed people of China (not least the Uighur Muslims) would be if they were in charge? What about the people of African nations… do you think they’re mainly enlightened cosmopolitans (an oxymoron)?
