Re: East Wickham, London Borough of Bexley (Kent)
By-Election 22 January 2009 Campaign
I am giving notice that the English Democrats are fielding a candidate for the above election, the papers have already been accepted by Bexley Council our candidate is Laurence Williams.
I am writing to notify you of several unfortunate incidents that have occurred in the neighbouring Borough of Dartford, which we do not want to see repeated in this campaign.
In the 2007 Council Elections, Labour Cllr Mrs Deborah Stoate, wife to local Labour MP Dr Howard Stoate, whilst canvassing on the doorstep to an English Democrats activists in West Hill Ward, referred to the "English Democrats as a “fascist Party"
This was backed up in a BBC interview at approximately 4am in the morning when a Labour Spokesman referred to the English Democrats as a "Far Right Wing Party"
Approximately 3 months ago Dartford Council Leader Cllr Jeremy Kite, requested a meeting with one of our Dartford Activists. Whilst in the Council Offices to discuss the Kidd Legacy Land, Cllr Kite referred to the English Democrats Dartford Chairman and former councillor Mike Tibby as "a dictator" and Steven Uncles, English Democrats South East Area Chairman as a “Fascist Racist".
The English Democrats campaign for an English Parliament, hence our party is pro-parliament and pro-democracy, which to anyone who has had a basic education, is aware that, this is totally opposite to the meaning of the word fascist.
The English Democrats is an inclusive party, with English, Scottish, Welsh, Asian etc members and candidates.
Since these incidents, the English Democrats have invested in legal advice to understand the 1976 Race Relations Act.
To make prejudicial comments and statements regarding the English Democrats party and English Democrats Party’s, Officers, Candidates & Members is likely to be in contravention to the 1976 Race Relations Act, since it is an individual’s or group’s protected right to express their English Nationality.
The English Democrats give notice to all Political Parties & the local and national media, that repetition of this behaviour will not be tolerated, and could result in legal action.
The English Democrats have already demonstrated that they will successfully use the 1976 Race Relations Act, and have done so against “The Royal Armouries at Leeds” which paid the English Democrats £5,200 compensation, following an incident where a hall booking was cancelled simply because of the word “English” in the name “English Democrats”
Finally I would like to confirm that the English Democrats are happy to debate with the Conservative & Unionist Party, Labour Party & Liberal Democrats Party as to why:-
Expenditure on Children’s School Meals is £1, and in England it is 37p
There are no University fees for Further Education for Scottish students, yet these remain for English Students (even those studying in Scotland), however they are exempt for Welsh, French, German etc students
Residential Care for the Elderly is free in Scotland - in England, Old People have to sell their house, and use all their savings before they receive help
In Scotland prescriptions scheduled to be free for all – however in England most adults still pay and in Wales prescriptions are already free.
Scotland has the ability, via the Scottish Parliament to boost its income tax revenue to allow for different Scottish spending priorities, yet Scotland continues to receive vast sums of English Tax payers money each year in subsidy – why is this money being spent in Scotland and not England ?
We look forward to an election campaign where we discuss the issues relevant to the people of England and East Wickham Ward.
