The English Democrats Party is in the process of selecting its candidates for Police and Crime Commissioners for the 37 Police Forces across England which are due to have elections on the 15th November.
Since our last post regarding this story Steve Uncles has been installed as EDP candidate for Kent and Michael Felse has stood down as candidate for Greater Manchester. Though the EDP claimed that Michael Felse was to be their candidate in Greater Manchester on the “YourNextPCC” website he was only ever listed as Independent. As it transpired, his political label proved to be irrelevant as he has now withdrawn.
Cambridgeshire. Stephen Goldspink. (PCC salary £70,000)
Essex. Robin Tilbrook. (PCC salary £85,000)
Kent. Steve Uncles. (PCC salary £85,000)

Certain EDP supporting sites have named Anthony Bennett-Spencer as candidate for Northamptonshire, though he has not been listed on the “YourNextPCC” website.
The following candidate has withdrawn from the contest but information may still be available on the site.
Greater Manchester. Michael Felse. (PCC salary £100,000)
England Watch has heard a couple of reports that there may also be a PCC candidate in the Hertfordshire election. As yet there has not been anything to this effect on any EDP site!
