The English Democrats select prospective MEP candidate for the Yorkshire and the Humber EU Region.
The English Democrats are delighted to announce that our prospective lead candidate for the EU elections on the 22nd May 2014 in the Yorkshire and the Humber Region will be Chris Beverley. The English Democrats will be fielding a full slate of candidates for the EU Parliament elections on the 22nd May 2014, with a view to not only using the opportunity to obtain another Party Election Broadcast, but also using the free leaflet drop to leaflet every address in England. Given that these elections are proportional representation, the English Democrats are approaching these elections with some confidence that we will get some of our candidates elected to the EU Parliament.
On Saturday, 22nd June, the English Democrats held a selection meeting at Leicester, near the central point of England, and are delighted to announce that we have selected an excellent prospective candidate in the person of Chris Beverley. We are confident that he will do an excellent job as MEP for the Yorkshire and the Humber Region.
Robin Tilbrook, Chairman of the English Democrats said:- “I am delighted that Chris Beverley put his name forward for selection and that we were able to have the opportunity of selecting such an excellent prospective lead candidate for the 2014 EU Elections.
As these elections are held on a proportional representation basis, given that as recently as last November we obtained 16% of first preferences in a supplementary vote election, we approach these elections with optimism that we will get some of our candidates elected. I am confident that if Chris Beverley gets elected that he will do as excellent a job as it is possible for an MEP to do for the people of the Yorkshire and the Humber Region. Chris Beverley is one of the key members of our Party and a keen activist who has given unstintingly of his time and effort for the Cause of England.”
Chris Beverley is 33 years old, married, and has two young children.
He attended Morley High School and went on to obtain a first class Joint Honours degree in German and History from the University of Leeds. He subsequently completed the Graduate Diploma in Law at De Montford University and currently works as a European Parliament researcher.
Chris has stood as an English Democrats candidate in elections to Leeds City Council and Morley Town Council and is the Chairman of Yorkshire English Democrats.
“I believe in promoting our English traditions of democracy and freedom of speech and opposing the twisted ideology of political correctness which continues to have such a corrosive effect throughout our society.
“Only the English Democrats stand up for these fundamental values and I am very proud to have been selected as the prospective lead English Democrats candidate for Yorkshire and the Humber.
“I have no doubt that we can win here in Yorkshire and it would be a privilege to serve as one of Yorkshire’s first English Democrats MEPs.”
Notes to Editors
The recently published 2011 Census showed that England has over 32 million (32,007,983) people (or 60.4%) who have stated they have only English National Identity. A further 4.8 million (4,820,181) people (or 9.1%) stated that their National Identity is ‘English and British’.
In sharp contrast with this nearly 70% being English there were only a mere 10 million (10,171,834) people (or 19.2%) who claimed to be ‘British Only’. A substantial proportion of these ‘British Only’ appear, from cross referencing with the results of the Census’ ethnicity question, to be of non English ethnicity (ie Scottish, Welsh or Irish).
Also demand for English Independence is increasing rapidly in England and although reactive to the movement for Scottish Independence it is not dependent on it. The June 2011 ComRes survey done for the BBC showed that then there was 36% support for England to be a fully Independent Country irrespective of the result of the Scottish Independence Referendum.

Key facts about the English Democrats
The English Democrats launched in 2002. The English Democrats are the English nationalist Party which campaigns for a referendum for Independence for England; for St George’s Day to be England’s National holiday; for Jerusalem to be England’s National Anthem; to leave the EU; for an end to mass immigration; for the Cross of St George to be flown on all public buildings in England.
The English Democrats are England’s answer to the Scottish National Party and Plaid Cymru. The English Democrats’ greatest electoral successes to date include winning the Directly Elected Executive Mayoralty of Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council and the 2012 referendum; We won the referendum which triggered a referendum to give Salford City an Elected Mayor; In 2012 we saved all our deposits in the Police Commissioner elections and came second in South Yorkshire; In the 2009 EU election we gained 279,801 votes after a total EU campaign spend of less than £25,000 (giving the English Democrats by far the most cost efficient electoral result of any serious Party in the UK)
