The EDP and the London Region Elections.
London has never been a good area for the English Democrats. Despite it being the capital of England it has never warmed to the EDP, 2014 is even worse than normal!
True, they do have a full slate of eight candidates for the European Elections in the Region but only two of then actually live in London, the Lead Candidate hails from Somerset.
EDP Candidates for the European elections in London.
1) Jenny Knight
2) Matthew Roberts
3) Maggi Young
4) Graham Clipperton
5) Gary Butler
6) Nick Capp
7) Louise Dutton
8) Natalie Smith
It should cause some concern to a party that claims to be THE nationalist party for England that from a total population of well over eight millions the EDP is unable to find 8 people willing to declare themselves as candidates.
The election agent for London is Steve Uncles, he is also Lead candidate for the South East Region, where he lives. This is another case of EDP members having to do multiple role in order to make the party look bigger.
It may be a small point but, is Mrs Louise Uncles ‘commonly-known-as’ Louise Dutton? Or are the rules different for European Elections?
On the same day as the E U elections those for the London Boroughs are also being held, almost 2,000 seats on 32 councils.
Local Election candidate.
Sutton. Wallington South.. David Jeffreys.
These councils last had fully contested elections in 2010 when the EDP put up 20 candidates, this year the EDP have just one (1) candidate, in Sutton. This is the parties worse showing ever.

Greenwich, 2010, 1….2014, 0.
Lambeth, 2010. 6….2014, 0.
Southwalk, 2010. 1 …..2014, 0.

There we have the ‘proof’ of Mr Tilbrook’s ‘growing party’;
2010 there were 20 EDP candidates in the London local elections.
2014 there is just 1 EDP candidate in the London local elections.
