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.

It Will Take Trillions of Euros to Save the European Union

It Will Take Trillions of Euros to Save the European Union

After the SNP’s historic victory in the 2015 General Election in Scotland, nationalist politicians can reasonably ask – What is the next step in the battle to break-up the UK?

English Votes for English Laws (“EVEL”) is a Westminster focussed political gimmic

English Votes for English Laws (“EVEL”) is a Westminster focussed political gimmick not a constitutionally valid solution to the “English Question” and cannot work for the following reasons:- If EVEL is introduced without legislation it would be merely a procedural Convention, without the force of law.  It is much easier to change Conventions than to repeal Acts of Parliament. EVEL does not address who governs England (The English Question) and would lead to a situation…
