English Democrats in the General Election
In the run up to this General Election we were all being repeatedly assured by Nigel Farage that his Brexit Party Ltd was going to stand in every seat. With nominations due to close on Thursday, it was fundamentally too late to get candidates lined up when he announced it on Monday, 11th that he was not going to stand his Party in any of the seats that the Conservatives won last time - even where the Conservative who got elected was a Remainer!
Nigel Farage had, at a stroke, created a situation that is simply infuriating! He has, yet again, clearly not thought through what he is doing and has flounced when challenged, rather than given a considered and sensible strategic response.
Those of us who support Brexit should have been able to ensure that electors in any constituency where their sitting MP was a Remoaning Remainiac had a pro-Brexit patriot on their ballot papers to enable Leave voters to get rid of their Remainer MP. Instead in many of the seats that Nigel Farage has now stood down in, there won’t be any patriotic Leave supporting candidate.
If we had known that Farage was not going to stick to his announced policy, the English Democrats would have worked hard to try to make sure that we did stand against the worst offending Remainers representing Leave voting seats. As it is we have only five candidates standing, albeit all of those are standing against Remainers and doing so in Brexit supporting seats.
I am standing against Theresa May’s former special advisor and loyalist Alex Burghart.
Frank Calladine is standing against Ed Miliband in Doncaster North.
Antonio Vittellio has joined us from UKIP to stand in Buckingham
I am pleased that “Daddy Dragon”, Graham Moore, is standing in the strongly Leave constituency of Bexleyheath & Crayford. Even his Returning Officer pointed out he was the only Brexiteer and patriot standing!
But I am most delighted that we have been able to stand against the awful Anna Soubry in Broxtowe and have put up against her the blogger “Based Amy” (Amy Mura) who is currently being pursued through the court’s by the wretched Soubry because she dared to call her a traitor! The old saying is that “the truth hurts”!
As quoted by Professor David Starkey in my last blog, it is difficult to think of any other word to describe Soubry and the other Remainiacs except as traitors. What they were doing was treason when they were actively conspiring to try and betray our county and country’s national interest to the EU and they also betrayed what they promised to do in the previous General Election.
I do hope if you live in the five constituencies in which we are standing you will support English Democrats’ candidates. If you live near enough to any of them to be able to do so, please do make contact to help with leafleting and, if you can, the cost of standing. All donations will be gratefully received and faithfully applied to the Cause!
