Well, we’ve told you repeatedly that the Brit parties . . . Conservatives, Labour and Lib Dems . . . do NOT represent England and the English, and now there can be no doubt!
Collectively, these parties have presided over a situation in which Scotland has been given a referendum on a matter (secession from the UK) which is not devolved but reserved to the British Government in Westminster, London, despite the Scottish National Party (SNP) having won merely 6 seats [10.2%] out of a total of 59 in the 2010 General Election.
The excuse for giving this exclusive referendum was the SNP’s performance in the 2011 elections to the Scottish Assembly when it won 69 seats [53.4%] out of a total of 129.
Regardless of the effect on England and the rest of the UK, we English are excluded from recording an opinion on the matter.
The British Prime Minister, David Cameron, himself the son of a Scot born in Aberdeen, has visited Scotland repeatedly to express his opinion on the matter, an opportunity denied to voters in England and the rest of the UK.
Panicked by the prospect of a majority of Scottish voters supporting separation, MPs from the Coalition and Labour parties first travelled into London at public expense and thence to Edinburgh using their positions to express opinions on Scotland’s referendum, an opportunity denied to voters in England and the rest of the UK.
Panicked by the prospect of a majority of Scottish voters supporting separation, MPs from the Coalition and Labour parties are now vying with each other to tender bribes in the form of yet more devolved powers to Scotland, none of which were previously mentioned in any party election manifesto and for which there is no mandate.
Only today (16th September), Gordon Brown MP (former British Prime Minister), in an act of pure demagoguery has committed Labour to maintaining the Health service in Scotland as a public service; this is in marked contrast to his actions affecting England during the time he was British Chancellor of the Exchequer & Prime Minister when he presided over widespread adoption of cost-inefficient PFI arrangements in NHS England.
Where is England and its 53 million citizens in all this? Nowhere to be seen I’m afraid!
England has never been afforded a referendum on the devolution of powers to a national assembly, unlike Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland!
Whilst Scots in power have claimed a national governing body for themselves, they (and the Welsh) have assiduously denied the people of England OUR own national parliament. The reason for this is self-evident: they are fearful that their positions of power and influence will be called into question.
Be in no doubt that further discrimination against the people of England is threatened by the Conservatives, Labour and Lib Dems! THEY scheme to ‘balkanise’ England, creating so called ‘city-regions’ which will enable them to disguise the reduced funding for English people’s services. THEY will not permit the English as a nation to determine our own system of local government.
As for devolving more power locally, the mere suggestion is risible. We all know that money is power ~ indeed, the late Robert Maxwell and Jimmy Savile wielded it in their individual ways ~ but public money is the last element the current crop of politicians intend to devolve to local level in England. Oh no! There is the policy of austerity (imposed mainly on England, of course!), and all that will be devolved is RESPONSIBILITY without sufficient resources, which will enable you to blame local councillors rather than the greedy, mendacious British politicians which infest the Westminster Parliament.
There are too many candidates elected in England who subordinate us and our interests to their first loyalty, to other interests. In recent decades, there has been abundant evidence to support this conclusion; it is a corruption of so called ‘representative democracy’ by carpetbaggers, by counterfeit candidates masquerading as being representative of our interests. THIS is why voters in England have been denied a referendum on an English Parliament, why our students pay the highest tuition fees, why we endure prescription charges, why we pay for our Social Care Services etc etc.
The English are treated as fourth class citizens in the UK. We are not treated more favourably in any particular matter! If we were, who truly believes that the vociferous grousers in Scotland and elsewhere would not be repeatedly reminding us of such treatment in ways similar to their persistent whining about the 1989 Poll Tax which, in the event, was inflicted on us also!
The Conservative, Labour and Lib Dem parties parachute non-English candidates at the expense of local candidates. Surely Scots, Welsh and Northern Irish candidates would (should) rather serve their own countries and secure election there. Such candidates standing in England are questionable and where electors are deceived into believing that they are ‘one of us’, English, their honour and motives are surely tainted.
If voters in England really want change, really to be properly represented, they will have to stop voting for Conservative, Labour and Lib Dem candidates! Voting for particular candidates simply because you think they have more chance of being elected, is really wasting your vote. It seems absurd to vote for your second or third or even third preference rather than vote for your first choice because you believe your first choice preference will not be elected; it is hardly a matter of high principle!
If sufficient voters supported other candidates, who knows what the outcome might be? Short of that, electors in England are doomed to endure similar unrepresentative politicians with loyalties elsewhere [ie Scotland, or Wales or N Ireland], and diverting England’s wealth accordingly.
SUPPORT THE ENGLISH DEMOCRATS, THE ONLY PARTY PUTTING ENGLAND AND HER PEOPLE FIRST!
