THE English Democrats are the only party putting the interests of the vast majority of the UK’s people first - the 84 per cent who live and work in England.
We oppose mass, uncontrolled immigration to England (which accommodates over 90 per cent of UK immigrants) and campaign for an effective points system based on the Australian and Canadian models. England needs a stable and sustainable population, not an ever-increasing one.
English Democrats favour a market economy but not an unrestrained market economy. A healthy economy is a mixed economy.
Our manufacturing sector should be expanded in order to halt the trend towards an over-reliance on service industries. We campaign for English jobs for English workers, and for more effective education in furtherance of this.
English Democrats support not only the rebuilding and repair of the West Country’s infrastructure (including roads, railways, bridges, and flood defences), but also extending them. The nature of the terrain in the West, especially Cornwall, makes increased use of helicopters and other air transport more cost-effective.
Given the unreliability of Scotland for our defence needs, we favour restoration of warship production in Devonport and Portsmouth and also re-opening naval repair facilities in Gibraltar. Similarly, we support relocation of other defence work to Bristol.
We regard the supply of food as a security matter, and favour greatly increased support for farmers.
What remains of our beautiful countryside is part of our culture and heritage and is a calming escape from our sprawling cities and urban areas. It should enjoy the care and protection of the state and not be viewed by ministers as just another asset which can be developed to the detriment of people, landscape, wildlife and farming.
The English Democrats have long campaigned for an English Parliament and now seek independence for England as a means of achieving this goal.
The English Democrats share the public concerns as to the harm caused to our society by political correctness.
We unreservedly reject the self-righteousness of political correctness and condemn the ideology as an evil; its purpose is to stifle debate and is thus incompatible with free speech and a democratic society.
We are opposed to the EU and campaign for a referendum about continued membership to be held as soon as possible.
