A ‘Yes’ vote in the forthcoming Scottish Referendum on Independence has a number of implications for the Commonwealth and its citizens. Perhaps the most significant of these would be the invalidity of ‘British’ identity.
Within a relatively short time, British Passports would become obsolete. It would not be entirely surprising for the conditions for obtaining or renewing their replacement (whether English or other) passports to be changed.
Commonwealth citizens visiting England may care to note that the English Democrats very much regret the way in which the Conservative Government under Edward Heath aided and abetted by the Liberals under the since discredited Jeremy Thorpe dragged Britain in 1973 into the then European Economic Community (now EU) without holding a prior referendum. Then, our backs were turned by the dictatorial British Government on our Commonwealth partners, partners who had fought with us in the Second World War.
The English Democrats campaign for self-determination and withdrawal from the EU would benefit both England and the Commonwealth. We have nothing to fear by leaving the EU, indeed it would be an opportunity to enhance trading relationships with our long-standing kith & kin and friends in the Commonwealth.
Those Commonwealth citizens (especially those in the South West) who identify with England and who cherish her, may wish to bear these factors in mind when they vote in the current elections for the European Parliament.
The English Democrats put England and her 53 million people first, but none of the other parties do, not even UKIP which (as its very name indicates) is a UK party.
VOTE ENGLISH, VOTE ENGLISH DEMOCRATS
