Steve Uncles, of the English Democrats, believes in ‘shock politics’. The idea is that you say something outrageous, controversial or just plain stupid in order to get your words noticed. The problem is that it takes both skill and intelligence. Mr Uncles has ‘read-a-book’ on how to do it but…..
His latest is an attack on the Irish, all Irish just because they are Irish it seems. He writes,
Just to confirm, I dislike all Irish people, Nationalist, Unionist etc- I am sick and tired of English lives and money being wasted in Northern Ireland……….get rid……….sooner the better.
A few days ago Mr Uncles was going to ‘Lurch’ the EDP to the left. Now he seems to be playing to the right-wing ethnic-nationalists.
It seems that confusion reigns in the leadership of the EDP
It is said that ‘a week is a long time in politics’ so four years is an age.
So how very different are Mr Uncles remarks of late compared to his attempted email to Sinn Fein offering reciprocal help to further both parties in England.
In the email below the spelling is Mr Uncles, the highlights are by England Watch!
Dear Sinn Fein
I would like to introduce the “English Democrats” party to you – we are the largest English Nationalist party in England with approaching 3,000 members.
On 4 June 2009, we will be standing in every English Constituency, our current manigesto position is a Federal United Kingdom with Fiscal Authomony for the various parts ie England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland.
Recent events, have however inspired some members of our party to suggest that a policy of a referendum by the people of England, Scotland & Wales to “ask Northern Ireland to leave the United Kingdom” would be an interesting and unique policy to develope, and would certainly promote both the English Nationalism Cause and the Irish Nationalism Cause at the same time.
We believe that such a policy would further the aims of Sinn Fien for a United Ireland.
We have the opportunity to get this message/suggestion to the door steps of 45 Million people in England by leaflet in May 2009, and via Party Political Broadcast during May 2009.
If Sinn Fien is interested in opening discussions to further our parelllel causes and developing this strategy then please do not hesitate to get in touch, we are willing to meet in Dublin if this is of interest.
Like Sinn Fien, the English Democrats have had enough of “British Rule” we wish to have “English Rule” for England, “Irish Rule” for Ireland, “Scottish Rule” for Scotland and “Welsh Rule” for Wales the time for Britiain is in the past, England needs to rise as a Nation in it’s own right.
We recognise the historic & geographical links between our Nations, and feel that this is best served by the “Council of the Isles” with English rather the UK representation in future meetings.
I look forward to hearing from you further, I do hope this genuine offer is of interest.

One would expect that an email from a leading member of “the largest English Nationalist party in England” would be in good English. It might also be a good idea when asking for help, and possibly money, from a political party to spell the name correctly.
Finally, he may not like Britain but he should at least be able to spell it!
