The ‘England First Party’ was voluntarily De-registered three days ago on the 14th June 2012 by the Party Leader Mark Cotterill.
The EFP had been registered on 2nd September 2003 and in the intervening years it had stood in over 40 elections and winning two council seats, making it the second most successful English nationalist party after the EDP.
We are left with three ‘live’ parties. The English Democrats, active but failing to grow, and the English People’s Party and One England both of which seem dormant.
The parlous state of English nationalist politics is illustrated by the list below. Since 2003, when the EFP was founded, a total of 14 political parties with the name England or English in their title have folded. They are listed below in order of closure.
