Make St George’s day a bank holiday

CEP-2016-TOUR

Our friends over at SaintGeorgesDay.org have asked us to help publicise their trip around England promoting Saint Georges Day.

Press Release 13th April 2016

Make St Georges day a bank holiday

Starting on Saturday the 16th April for 8 days, a Banner vehicle will be travelling around England reminding everyone to celebrate St George’s Day.

It will finish on the 24th April at the Stonecross parade being held in West Bromwich. Expected at the parade will be 15,000++ showing their love of community, family, St George and England. (They will parade for 2 miles).

It is about time that the British government gave the people of England another Bank Holiday as England has the lowest number of public holidays in the whole of the EU at only 8 days and the second lowest in the world

Making St George’s day a bank holiday makes commercial sense as research has shown that consumers also enjoy spending money on holiday days.

Public houses, businesses and councils should respond to this demand by launching their own events to mark England’s day of celebration.

Eddie Bone, Campaign Director for ‘Make St George’s day a Bank Holiday’ stated:

‘We believe that promoting St Georges day as a national holiday and a family day will help create a positive sense of national identity, social unity and integrate our communities. St Georges Day should be a bank holiday, as it will instill a sense of belonging, stability and acceptance of community spirited values.’

He continued

‘Our campaign challenges anyone to tell us what is wrong with celebrating English accomplishments as a nation’.

If the people of England were given a day off for St George’s Day, we would most surely see a marked rise in celebrations across England. It would be safe to say that people in England certainly welcome the idea that St George’s day should be made a bank holiday

The Government needs to understand that the people of England love the country they live in – and aren’t afraid to show it!

GOVT MIS-USING POLICE COMMISSIONER ELECTION FUNDS for EU PROPAGANDA


GOVT MIS-USING POLICE COMMISSIONER ELECTION FUNDS for EU PROPAGANDA

Fobbing 5

The Cabinet Office refused to spend what they claimed was £9 million on an information booklet for the Police Commissioner Elections which was recommended by the Electoral Commission, but instead it is set to waste £9 million on a booklet of propaganda for the European Union about which the Electoral Commission has stated as:- “We don’t think the government should have done it, but it’s not illegal,” and that:- “Electoral Commission recommended that the Government should conduct no taxpayer funded advertising”.
Robin Tilbrook, the Chairman of the English Democrats said that:- “In September 2015 I wrote to ask the Government to do a Mayoral style booklet for the Police and Crime Commissioner Elections and wrote that:-
“the Government has neglected to properly consider and apply the Electoral Commission’s conclusions in their report dated March 2013 that there must be a Mayoral style booklet delivered to each elector. Please could you let me know what you are proposing to do to sort out this mess?”
On the 29th February 2016 David O’Gorman of the Cabinet Office’s Elections Division replied to me stating that despite:-
“the Electoral Commission’s recommendation to provide printed booklets of candidate election addresses … there are no plans to provide the booklets to all eligible households in May 2016, given it is estimated that to do so would cost up to £9m.”
Robin Tilbrook continued:- “So it is now crystal clear that this is a government which refused to spend £9 million on a Mayoral style booklet which was recommended by the Electoral Commission to enable the Police Commissioner elections to be conducted fairly. Instead it is determined misuse that £9 million to try to unfairly skew the results of the EU referendum. This is directly against the Electoral Commission’s advice. This is a striking illustration of the rottenness at the heart of the British Government and, as the old saying goes:- “A fish rots from its head”!”

Key facts about the English Democrats
The English Democrats launched in 2002 and are the only campaigning English nationalist Party. We campaign 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; 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.

ALL EQUAL UNDER THE LAW?

 

“We cannot sit here complacently in our red and green benches (referring to the House of Lords) while women are suffering a system which is utterly incompatible with the legal principles upon which this country is founded. If we don’t do something, we are condoning it.” Baroness Caroline Cox on Shari’a law in the UK.

Therese Hirst, English Democrats prospective candidate in West Yorkshire Police & Crime Commissioner election 2016 writes:

As I indicate below, Divorce Courts in England and Wales paved the way for the legalisation of shari’a divorce law principles, contrary to our values of justice and equality, and in opposition to our stance against the oppression of women and most vulnerable in society at large.

Ironically, whilst the Government and many opposition groups were preparing to rail-road through changes to the Equality Bill to ensure the ‘rights’ of gay and lesbian couples to marry, and feminist MP’s like Harriett Harman, role their sleeves up, bang on tables, and shout from the rooftops about the imbalance of women in positions of power on the boards of many of the top UK companies, these same, so-called, champions of equal rights and the rights of women remain silent and do nothing to protect the thousands of vulnerable Muslim women who suffer, quietly forgotten, and down-trodden by male dominated – many illegal – shari’a law courts which decide on matters such as domestic violence, child custody, division of property and inheritance rights – and seemingly at the time to be completely abandoned by our civil and criminal courts – should a recent High Court ruling have left the door wide open to a two-tier legal system.

It seems that these very same people who claim to be the champions of equality and women’s rights are quite prepared to put themselves in opposition to religious beliefs and practices when it comes to those held by Christianity – a faith upon which these values owe their very foundation – but cannot find themselves extending these same principles or expressing the same ‘righteous’ indignation to minority religious groups: The legalisation of same sex marriages (which, in my opinion, discriminates against co-habiting hetero-sexual couples) – being the most recent in a string of attacks on the Christian faith.

If one is completely honest about this, the reason why this must inevitably be the case, is due to decades of brain-washing by the governing elite that multiculturalism is the only true protector of the rights of minority groups within society. Blinded by a misconceived belief that all cultures are equal and deserving of respect, they find themselves handcuffed and unable to challenge true injustice and true inequality. This is perhaps the tragedy of our times.

And of course, another reason is the simple fact that many MP’s owe their seats in Parliament to the growing force of the Muslim vote, and who would bite the hand that feeds it?

Yet Baroness Cox, a sometimes controversial and outspoken member of the House of Lords, however, is one of the few voices in public office who is prepared to speak out against the encroachment of shari’a law courts in family and criminal matters and is recently quoted as saying, “…many [Muslim] women live in fear, so intimidated by family and community that they dare not speak out or ask for help.”

In October 2012 the independent-minded, Cross Bench peer saw the second reading of her Bill – ‘The Arbitration and Mediation Services (Equality Bill)’, which would have settled the debate on, what is arguably, one of the most important issues of our time – the place of Shari’a law in our legal system – “not heard due to lack of parliamentary time!”

Writing in the Spectator at the time, Douglas Murray described the debate as being the stark choice on “whether this country will make a stand on the principle of ‘one law for all’ or whether competing laws will be allowed to operate unchallenged by a timid government and weak legal system”. Regrettably, they chose the latter.

Our legislature gave its answer when the Bill was first defeated and not long afterwards our family law courts spoke with the same deafening silence. A High Court ruling opened the way for divorce matters to be settled by Shari’a and other religious courts. A family law judge decided to refer a divorce dispute to be settled under, Jewish Rabbinical law – Beth Din – making it a landmark legal decision. According to Mr Justice Baker, “the outcome was in keeping with English law, whilst achieved by a process rooted in Jewish culture”.

Speaking to The Times, a spokesperson for the Muslim Council of Britain, said: “If it leads to the eventual acceptance of Shari’a court divorces, then Muslims will be very encouraged.”

However, whilst this legal decision may well have conformed to English divorce law principles, one needs to ask the very serious question, ‘What happens when future decisions made by recognised religious courts do not conform to English law? Who will speak out for the disadvantaged and most vulnerable in our society then?’ The answer must surely, sadly, be ‘No-one!’

Baroness Cox, however, unrelenting in her pursuit to challenge this two-tier legal system re-launched her ‘Equality Bill’ and this was passed on January 20th 2016 by the House of Lords.

So, for the time being, at least – as the Bill has to go back to the House of Commons for a Second Reading – there may be some glimmer of hope and – finally, equality under the law for each and every citizen, no matter their colour or creed or ethnic background.

Not surprisingly, the pro-Shari’a lobbyists are out in force with Mohammed Amin, Chairman of the Conservative Muslim Forum, voicing his opposition to the Bill:

“…the Bill will achieve next to nothing. However, it will, indeed already has, upset many Muslims. Legislating it would enable non-violent extremists to paint this as the British state “criminalising Shariah.”

My message is simple – the protection of women and the ‘paramountcy’ of children as enshrined in Child Law in this country can only be achieved through the passing of this Bill, there is no real alternative. We can no longer sit back and allow women who are divorced at whim by their husbands to lose their children, left destitute or be discriminated against in other family matters. Such matters must be determined by British courts, and not by arbitrary religious, Shari’a law courts controlled by men!

The English Democrats are pleased to announce that Alan England is our Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for North Yorkshire in the 2016 elections.

North Yorksire PCC Web size template

The English Democrats are pleased to announce that Alan England is our Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for North Yorkshire in the 2016 elections.

The Police and Crime Commissioners replaced the previous largely ineffective and anonymous Police Authorities with a Directly Elected Commissioner with the power to hire and fire the Chief Constable and allocate the Police Force’s budget and set priority policies.

Our slogan for this election will be ‘English Democrats –“MORE POLICE – CATCHING CRIMINALS!”‘

Our manifesto has good old fashioned English common-sense policies for policing and I expect will strongly appeal to the electorates of most English Constabularies. Elected English Democrats’ Police and Crime Commissioners will purge their police forces of political correctness and focus their police forces on catching real criminals and maintaining traditional English Law and Order rather than Politically Correct social engineering projects.

“If elected I shall increase the policing budget for North Yorkshire and resist the “Conservative’s” secret plans to cut it which are leading to the disastrous loss of hundreds of police constables and of reducing our police force’s capability to catch criminals and maintain Law and Order in North Yorkshire!

I also intend to seek a mandate from the people of North Yorkshire that every police station should fly the Cross of St George; that “communities” budgets are used to promote North Yorkshire celebrations of St George’s Day and upon a zero tolerance attitude on the part of North Yorkshire police force to petty crime and anti-social behaviour, that blights so many of our communities.

“I fully intend to use the Police Commissioners power to dismiss the Chief Constable in the event of non-compliance.”

“MORE POLICE – CATCHING CRIMINALS! Traditional English Law and Order; Cracking down on real criminals and gangs. Criminals should be afraid, not good citizens!

Zero tolerance for political correctness in North Yorkshire policing!

The “Conservatives” plan to privatise and to cut hundreds of front line police officers! We oppose any cuts to real policing.

On 5th May 2016 – Vote English Democrats for more and for tougher policing in North Yorkshire

Key facts about the English Democrats

The English Democrats launched in 2002 and are the only campaigning English nationalist Party. We campaign 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; 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.

Relevant parts of the English Democrats’ manifesto are below:

1.6 The English Flag

1.6.1 We call for the compulsory flying of the English flag, the cross of St George, on all state-maintained public buildings in England.

2.11 Policing

2.11.1 Policing is an increasingly difficult job due to changes in our society, which now lacks the social cohesion and shared values that once gave us a mostly peaceful and well-ordered way of life. Our cities have become places where it is impossible to perform traditional communal policing.

2.11.2 English Democrats seek a return to a system of policing which recognises the principle that all citizens are treated equally. In their efforts to prevent crime and catch criminals the police should not be hindered and demoralised by unreasonable ideological constraints.

2.11.3 We should not lose sight of the fact that the basis for the maintenance of law and order in England rests on a firm foundation of active participation by law-abiding citizens. A relationship of trust and co-operation between citizens and police is essential to effective policing and the prevention of crime. With that in mind, it is reasonable to expect that policing should not be oppressive. The aim is a peaceable society in which liberty and justice can flourish.

2.11.4 It is essential that the police force be adequately trained and resourced.

2.11.5 Police forces should be more democratically accountable than at present. This would require the election of Chief Constables or the Police Authorities which appoint them.

2.11.6 English Democrats call for the creation of a scheme enabling businesses to pay for their security staff to train and register as Special Constables, their powers of arrest applying to their place of work and its neighbouring streets. Such registered security staff would be subject to Police staff performance monitoring and discipline.

2.12 The Legal System

2.12.1 The primary role of a legal system is to provide the means for settling disputes. It should enable those who suffer loss, in the form personal injury, theft, or damage to property, to be properly compensated by the party at fault. Laws, and the penalties for breaking them, should comply with the principles of natural justice.

As societies have become more complex, so have their law codes. To a great extent, this is unavoidable.

2.12.2 However, states and their governing elites are extending the reach of law into areas that infringe upon individual liberties. The result is a body of law which is more restrictive and complex than it need be. Many of the customs and principles of English law are being undermined in the political quest for greater conformity with Continental ideas and practices. Law is being used as a tool for imposing dogma. One of the consequences of these changes is that the police are increasingly being made the enforcers of political doctrine and moving further away from their traditional role of upholding the delicate balance between Order and Liberty.

2.12.3 In order to obtain justice, citizens must feel able to consult and employ the services of the legal profession. Many people are deterred from this by the procedures and costs of the present legal system. Improvements have been made in recent years but more needs to be done to make the system user friendly and efficient.

2.13.4 The English Democrats favours less law and a simplification of law. There are far too many matters currently covered by the criminal law. There should be a drastic reduction and rationalisation of the number and extent of criminal offences.

2.13.5 We must reform the jury system but not abandon it because the jury provides a democratic check on the legal system. The law is not the property of lawyers; it belongs to the people and should serve their needs.

Our preference is for a return to comprehensible, just and effective law. Given its current chaotic state, the law should be codified.

2.13.6 Once the criminal law has been properly codified, the English Democrats would ensure that the criminal law is vigorously policed and enforced.

2.13.7 Except in an emergency there should be a single annual implementation date for new law. This will help rectify the current muddled situation where no one can be sure, without considerable effort or expense, whether a clause of a new Act has been brought into force or not. Also, some rules, for example the Civil Procedure Rules, are being rewritten so frequently that new editions are being published more than once a month! This leads, not surprisingly, to the shameful situation where no-one, not even the judiciary, can be sure of the current rule in force without first making unreasonable efforts to research the point.

2.13.8 In order to avoid such excessive complexity developing again, a monitoring system should be devised which ensures that new law is unambiguously comprehensible and properly and efficiently enforceable. This could be a function of a reformed Second Chamber.

2.13.9 The English Democrats respect the right of victims of crime to defend themselves and their property against criminals. The English Democrats would extend the right of self-help.

2.13.10 The English Democrats believe that every victim of a criminal offence should have the right to address the court on the question of sentence and for the court to be required to bear the victim’s views in mind when passing sentence.

2.13.11 It is not acceptable that 100,000 hardened criminals commit over half of all crime in the U.K. Once a criminal is identified as beyond effective rehabilitation he or she must be kept out of the community until no longer a risk.

2.13.12Prisons should be designed and equipped so that prisoners are not subject to degrading conditions

3.19 Political Correctness
3.19.1 The English Democrats share the public concerns as to the harm caused to our society by political correctness.

3.19.2 The English Democrats unreservedly condemn this intolerant creed. We reject the self-righteousness of political correctness and condemn the ideology as an evil. Political correctness is incompatible with a free and democratic society.

3.19.3 One key aspect of political correctness is that a person, an institution or a government is politically correct when they cease to represent the interests of the majority, and become focused on the deliberate subversion of English national culture and interests, the denigration of English history and of the English themselves, and the promotion of the objectives of minority pressure groups.

3.19.4 Political correctness is grounded in the capture of state institutions, with official spokespeople, legislative powers and sanctions for breaches of political correctness. It is this capture of state institutions which makes political correctness so oppressive and dangerous. This must end.

3.19.5 The English Democrats will take whatsoever measures are necessary to remove political correctness from both national and local government, including the various quangos and other government bodies funded either directly or indirectly by the taxpayer. These measures will include the following three steps:

3.19.5.1 Firstly, those educational establishments, legal establishments, quangos, departments or other government organisations that are promoting political correctness will be fundamentally reconstituted and/or have their funding withdrawn or, where appropriate and if possible, be closed down. In particular, the so-called Commission for Equality and Human Rights will be closed. Private organisations that promote political correctness will not be awarded government contracts.

3.19.5.2 Secondly, the English Democrats recognise that those institutions that are run by state appointees are the most detached from public opinion and are more likely to become politically correct. The English Democrats will, where practical, ensure that senior public employees, such as police chief constables and senior judges, are democratically approved by the community they serve. This will be achieved either via direct elections or via approval by democratically elected representatives. Many senior public posts will be subject to a maximum occupancy period, for such senior public employees to be accountable to the public will form a part of a bulwark against political correctness.

3.19.5.3 Thirdly, the English Democrats will carry out a review of all laws and regulations, and will amend or, where appropriate and if possible, completely repeal those laws and regulations that foster and promote political correctness.

3.20 St George’s Day

3.20.1 The people of England should be able to celebrate St George’s day as a National Holiday.

PRESS RELEASE: Winston McKenzie has joined the English Democrats

Winston McKenzie Header copy

Winston McKenzie, the former UKIP candidate, who some say is the most influential Black English political figure today, has declared himself an English nationalist and joined the English Democrats, the only campaigning English nationalist party.

In our National Council meeting on Saturday, 12th December in Bradford, the English Democrats selected Winston McKenzie as our candidate for the London Mayoral election in May 2016.

It has been claimed for some time by Left-wing multiculturalists that Black people in England only identify with being British.

Winston McKenzie’s declaration of his English national identity is a big step away from the remnants of Britishness in England and towards almost everyone in England identifying themselves as being English rather than British, just as the equivalent already happens in Scotland and Wales.

Robin Tilbrook, the Chairman of the English Democrats in welcoming Winston McKenzie to the English Democrats and as its Mayoral candidate in London said:-

“I am delighted to announce that we have selected Winston McKenzie to be our candidate for the London Mayoral election. Winston is a great character and one of the most high profile Black English political figures of our day.”

“His journey from the old national identity of British to the re-emerging national identity of English is very welcome as it shows that English national identity is now catching up fast with Scottish and Welsh national identity.”

“I think we will look back on this day as a milestone in the re-emergence of England – and of what the English Democrats campaign for – England resuming its place amongst the Nation states of the earth and to be able to become a modern, democratic, prosperous, independent European Nation State respecting the uniqueness of all nations and in friendship with our European neighbours in a Europe of Nations and of Freedom!”

“Now this important decision has been taken we are making a call for support so that Winston’s campaign can reach as many London voters as possible.”

We campaign 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; 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.

PRESS RELEASE Oldham shows UKIP have ‘shot their bolt’!

Despite having a clear run left for them by the English Democrats, UKIP have failed (again) to beat Corbyn’s Labour in Oldham. UKIP have ‘shot their bolt’!

The English Democrats left the field clear for UKIP insurgents to do as well as possible in Oldham. Despite Labour’s new Leader making it clear that he was very much of the unpatriotic Far Left, nevertheless UKIP was unable to make the breakthrough.

This was even with all UKIP’s tremendous campaigning efforts and its £100,000 campaign spend. UKIP’s “Believe in Britain” and “British” Eurosceptic message failed to resonate sufficiently with Oldham’s patriotic English voters. See more at: EU-Scepticism in England: English not British

It is now increasingly clear that UKIP’s time has come and gone. UKIP’s shelf life is limited in any case to the end of 2017, by which time the EU Referendum would have been decided and UKIP’s sole purpose will have either been endorsed or rejected by the electorate of the United Kingdom.

Robin Tilbrook, Chairman of the English Democrats said:- “It was sadly all too predictable that UKIP’s insurgency in Oldham would fail, given UKIP’s failure to become an English nationalist party and its leadership’s obsession with increasingly old-fashioned and irrelevant Britishness.”

Robin continued:- “UKIP’s shelf life is now approaching the end, as once the EU Referendum has come and gone, before the end of 2017, UKIP’s sole purpose will have ended. I am now looking forward to the day when the rising sense of English nationalism is politically and culturally centre stage – from 2018 onwards!”

The English Democrats,
