Why I am standing for the English Democrats in Dagenham & Rainham
1/ Why Dagenham and Rainham? – I lived in Dagenham for 15 years and left when I started to feel like an alien in my own country.
Each time I return I am dismayed to see the way white English people are regarded as second class citizens – and to hear horror stories like the lady who was fined for putting up Christmas decorations which “offended” her ethnically diverse neighbours. Had that been the other way around there would be protestations and allegations of racism.
I started my family in Dagenham and was proud to live in a community with a proud East End working class work ethic. I used to run a stall in Dagenham market and loved the camaraderie.
I consider myself to be a patriotic English woman and am justly proud of my country’s heritage and its – and Dagenham and Rainham’s – magnificent contributions to the world such as the mother of parliaments, the industrial revolution and a plethora of world class literature, arts and medicine.
2/ Why the English Democrats ? – Currently we live in a so called “United Kingdom” but devolution in 1998 by the British Labour party fundamentally changed the United Kingdom and changed England to become the fourth most important Nation within the United Kingdom. My objective and that of the English Democrats is to put England FIRST, not fourth. Those living in England, suffer from all sorts of inequalities compared to those living in Ireland, Scotland and Wales – collectively these people receive a staggering additional £49 Billion per year in public expenditure compared to those living in England. This is via the bribe called the Barnett Formula that was put in place in the 1970’s to try to dampen down Scottish and Welsh Nationalism in particular,
The Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats and UKIP are all so embarrassed about this figure that they have ALL agreed NOT to talk about it. It is frankly disgusting that people who claim to represent English constituencies do not debate this – instead they allow the English Tax payer to continue to subsidise Scotland, Wales and Ireland, even though there are now many areas in England that are poorer then these three nations. This has been going on for over 30 years.
3/ Out of the EU – English Democrats want to take England out of the European Union and re-join EFTA, the European Free Trade Association, this will save a further £9 Billion per year, on top of the £49 Billion saved by leaving Scotland, Wales and Ireland, if “they” want to stay in the EU, that’s up to them.
And “Eurosceptic” UKIP recently received a £1.5million cash injection from Brussels for acquiring pan European party status. The height of hypocrisy.
4/ Only humanitarian Foreign Aid – When the main political parties tell the English that we need to “tighten our belts”, it is totally absurd that they continue to want to give away £10 Billion a year to other countries when the British Government is still paying out more than it is receiving in tax and hence further increasing the National Debt, which is going to be a painful debt for our grandchildren.
5/ English Culture and Identity – I am proud of my English Nationality, and I want to live in an England, where I am free to express my English Identity, without challenge or disapproval. It is totally absurd that I have to defend my right to express my English identity, when I was born English, live in England and speak English – over 60% of people feel the way I do according to the 2011 Census in England.
6/ Radical Islam – we have to end this menace in England, just like is being done throughout Northern Europe. In England we should only have English Law in England and the state should promote only English Customs and Traditions.
I would be delighted to become the first elected “English MP” to represent the English and England, in the way that Nicola Sturgeon Leader of the SNP has vowed to put “Scotland First” in the UK Parliament, I wish to put “England First” – we urgently need English representatives on the UK Parliament to finally stand up for ENGLAND and THE ENGLISH.
