Rik Mayall – Noble England (RIP)
The Nine English Democrats you will be electing on 22 May 2014
European Parliament elections in England
The voting system
Proportional representation – closed list.
Who am I voting for?
Between three and ten Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) to represent your region.
The UK is divided into regions, one for each of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and nine covering England. Each region is allocated a number of MEPs according to its population.
How to vote
Always read the instructions for filling in the ballot paper carefully, even if you have voted before.
The ballot paper lists political parties and independent candidates. Under each party name is a list of candidates who wish to represent that party.
Simply put an X (a cross) next to the party you wish to vote for.
If you make a mistake then you can ask the polling staff to give you another ballot paper.
You may also be voting in other elections on the same day.
Who is elected?
In a given region the allocated seats are awarded using a quota system. The quota is the total number of votes received by a party or independent candidate divided by the number of seats already gained in that region +1.
So, for a party with no seats the number of votes received is divided by one, and so stays the same. If the party already has one seat then its number of votes is divided by two, if it has two seats it is divided by three, and so on.
This means that the more seats you have already won, the harder it is to gain extra seats, so the overall allocation of seats is more proportional to the number of votes received.
The first seat that a party wins goes to the first person on its list, the second seat to the second person, and so on, until the party has either not won any more seats or has run out of names on its list.
Political Map of the British Isles after Scotland has Voted to dissolve the Union with England of 1707
The British Political parties and the British media are in denial as to what will happen to the United Kingdom when Scotland votes to break the Union with England and end the “United Kingdom”
This will result in the 1707 Act of Union being repealed, and the United Kingdom as an entity being abolished, all constituent parts of the United Kingdom (Province of Ulster, Kingdom of Scotland and Kingdom of England) will find themselves out of the European Union and free from the debts of the United Kingdom.
The map will look as follows:-
Steve Uncles – Opening Speech at EU Elections Hustings
During the campaign, I attended hustings at Kent University, Southampton University, Surrey University and St Nicolas Church, Newbury Berkshire.
The opening speech I gave was similar at all 4 events, and Southampton University were kind enough to record on video
Please see below.
Good afternoon ladies and gentleman, my name is Steve Uncles and I am the Leadcandidate for the English Democrats here in the European Region of South East England.
I am an Englishman being born in Blackheath, now London but historical Kent, and have lived in South East London/ North West Kent all of my life.
– I’m English, NOT British, NOT European.
And that is now the flag ship policy of the English Democrats to achieve Independence for England once again, not only do we believe that the European Union is bad for England, but we also believe the United Kingdom is also equally as bad for England, and we wish to see these choices put to the people of England at the earliest possible opportunity in referenda.
We are the only party that wishes to leave both Unions, neither being of benefit to modern England in the 21st Century.
I’m English, NOT British, NOT European.
In November 2006, an ICM poll commissioned by the Sunday Telegraph, showed that support for full English independence had reached 48% of those questioned – that was 8 years ago.
In 2011 the UK Government Census showed that 60% of people living in England, gave their National identity as ONLY English, with a further 10% claiming a dual identity of English/British,
On the panel here today, then all but two parties here support the continuation of the United Kingdom, however although we may disagree about Europe it is good to see that the Green Party, agree in the self determination of people in Scotland, and are campaigning for Scottish Independence and therefore an end to the United Kingdom – this will free England.
The British political establishment bizarrely feed to the public and the media that if Scotland leaves the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, that somehow the United Kingdom can continue – this is incorrect.
If Scotland effectively divorces England, just like ending a marriage the Union will be dissolved, and the United Kingdom will dissolve into three component parts, the Kingdom of Scotland, the Province of Northern Ireland and the Kingdom of England, this includes the principality of Wales.
Wales is a principality and Northern Ireland a province it will would therefore be foolish for the British politicians to believe that they could re-unify England, Wales and N Ireland, and call the entity the “United Kingdom”, when the remaining components of the former United Kingdom only contain “one Kingdom” – that Kingdom being England.
Following the dissolving of the United Kingdom, my colleagues here will have to reconsider re-naming their political parties, the Conservative & Unionist party, would of course have to drop the “Unionist” part from their name to become “The Conservatives”.
The United Kingdom Independence Party, UKIP, would have to rename it’s self “KIP” after removing the name United from it’s name or possibly one of my colleagues suggested a new name “Former United Kingdom Independence Team” – Think about it
Labour is a very confused party – their former deputy leader John Prescott born in Wales, once bizarrely stated “there is no such Nationality as English” indicating that Labour believe that all those living in England identify as “British”
I’m English, NOT British, NOT Euorpean,
…….. and as previously stated 32 Million people in 2011 living in England identify their Nationality as English.
It just shows how foolish the British Labour Party are – indeed their current leader is running under the slogan “One Nation” we must assume that Ed Miliband means one Nation of Britain, remember we are talking here about the British Labour the very same party that put in place devolution in 1998, but only in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
As students you will also be aware that Scottish University Students are treated in a more preferential way to English University Students, this not only includes Scottish Students living in Scotland, but also Scottish students living in England but who have a Scottish mother or father.
In 1998 Labour MP’s in the UK parliament under a Labour Government voted to impose Student Fees in England on English students, yet the devolved Labour Scottish Government in Scotland voted to continue Free Higher Education for Scottish Students – how can that be fair ? – indeed it was only the votes of Scottish Labour MP’s in the British Parliament, that ensured there was a majority to make the Law in England.
Recent polls show that around 40 percent of Scots plan to vote for YES independence in this year’s referendum while 45 percent intended to vote NO.
It now looks highly likely that after a 307 year Union between Scotland & England as Great Britain, this will be broken up on 18 September 2014.
If you wish to leave BOTH the European Union and the Union with Scotland Vote English, Vote English Democrats on the 22 May 2014 we are standing in every English constituency.
