GENERAL ELECTION RESULTS
Amongst all the Tory angst and delusional crowing from the Labour side, as well as the fall out for the Liberal Democrats there has been very few reports about the English Democrats’ results.
Before getting on to those I would just like to point out that, although Theresa May made many mistakes in both the calling and the conduct of the General Election, the sheer numbers of people voting Conservative did actually go up quite significantly.
The Labour vote went up by slightly more, but the results aren’t a product of their increase in the vote, they are a product of more effective targeting by Labour than by the Conservatives.
In particular Mrs May made the mistake of calling the General Election whilst it was still during the Universities’ term time and therefore lost several seats by small margins because of the student vote. It also appears that some Labour student voters voted twice from some of the more idiotic boasting on social media! I shall be drawing that to the attention of the police and of the Electoral Commission.
Despite having somewhat increased their seats the Liberal Democrat Leader was forced out as a result of a coup within the Liberal Democrats. This appears to have been orchestrated by Brian Paddick, whose only known achievement is to have been a senior policeman promoted, so far as one can tell, mainly because of him being gay, rather than because of any merit of his as an effective police officer.
Tim Farron has expressly confirmed that it is no longer possible to be a Liberal Democrat and a genuine practicing orthodox Christian, let alone a scripturally based Evangelical Christian. As I have said in a previous blog, our politically correct British political Establishment has now decided that it is a breach of “fundamental British values” (sic!) to believe as Christ states in the New Testament:- “I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me” (John 14.6).
So far as UKIP is concerned, they have, of course, not only failed to win any seats but also lost the one seat that they had actually won in Clacton. They also lost almost all of their deposits. A result made worse by their leadership’s decision to stand 377 candidates instead of the 106 which would have been all that would have been required in order to qualify them to get all the publicity that they did in fact get during the election.
So far as the English Democrats are concerned, we were not prepared for the election and, indeed, had spent all that was available on our standing in the local and Mayoral elections and so were only able to put up 7 candidates with the short notice given. Most of our candidates did not distribute any leaflets, but in any case the issue, as we now know over many years’ experience, is not so much getting a single leaflet out, but much more importantly having the manpower resources to knock on doors, to have got data on our potential supporters already collected and to be allowed to do further leafleting of all potential supporters to make sure that they did actually turn out and vote.
As our results show we are nowhere near achieving that yet.
We do however fully intend to be at the position where we can win some seats at the next General Election.
That is the aim which I am setting the English Democrats and we will be working towards achieving that and hope to be successful in doing it, provided of course that the next General Election isn’t called on another sudden whim by whomsoever happens to be the then Leader of the Conservative Party!
Here are our election results:-
North East Cambridgeshire – Stephen Goldspink – 293
Barnsley East – Kevin Riddiough – 287
Barnsley Central – Stephen Morris – 211
Holborn & St Pancras – Janus Polenceus – 93
Clacton – Robin Tilbrook – 289
Bradford South – Therese Hirst – 377
Doncaster North – David Allen – 363
I would also like to say thank you very much to our candidates for standing in the General Election and for keeping the flame of English nationalism burning.
To quote the English theologian and historian, Thomas Fuller, in his religious travelogue 'A Pisgah-Sight of Palestine And The Confines Thereof' of 1650:-
