A Happy New Year to English nationalists! But will it be so?
It is a sad fact that as we enter a new year English nationalism is looking in a very sorry state! We are reduced to two ‘active’ parties, one of which does not feel that it is developed enough to contest elections at even the lowest level, in spite of being in existence for over two years.
What follows is a résumé of English nationalist parties of the 21st Century! it may be a ‘walk down memory lane’ for some of our readers! Not all of them are English nationalist parties in the full sense but have England or English in their name.
We have divided the parties into three groups,
‘Active’, those who are actively contesting elections or showing some signs of development.
Dormant, those parties that are inactive but the name is kept alive on the Electoral Commission’s register. The main reasons for this are that it may be used in the future or to prevent anyone else from registering the name.
Deceased, those parties that have been de-registered in the last ten years.
