Prospective English Democrats European Election candidate for Yorkshire and the Humber, Chris Beverley, has welcomed the support given to the principle of English Independence by distinguished English academic Roger Scruton.
Mr Scruton appeared on BBC Radio 4’s ‘A Point of View’ on 21 February 2014, to outline his views on the issues affecting England in light of the upcoming referendum on Scottish independence and the constitutional questions which arise from this.
Chris said: “The support voiced for the cause of English Independence by Roger Scruton is most welcome and comes at a time when an increasing number of people are demanding a say in the future makeup of the UK. As Mr Scruton pointed out, the English have never been given a say on the question of Scottish Independence – it is as though the opinions of people in England count for nothing.
This contribution by Roger Scruton has lent significant intellectual weight to the cause of English Independence and this can only help those campaigning for fairness for England and English self-determination.”
