An Asian who believes he is English?
This is an 'English' Democrats campaign video. This is the kind of politically 'correct' brainwashing you will have to sit still for if you leave the British National Party, and join this gang of multiculturalist quislings. Eddy Butler believes the 'English' Democrats are the best alternative to the BNP for nationalists. So much the worse for Eddy Butler's reputation as a nationalist and for his political judgement.
I supported Eddy's leadership challenge in 2010 because he represented the lesser of two evils. He would have been an improvement on Griffin with all of his corruption and incompetence. Having more personal ambition than principle, Eddy now appears to be pursuing a barely hidden, open 'secret', agenda with and for the English Democrats. It saddens me to have to say this as, on a personal level, I have always liked, and got on well with Eddy. However, one's loyalty to the party, and to the cause it champions must, necessarily, come before personal considerations.
Eddy Butler has a small personal following of politically unsophisticated cultists, just as Griffin has. Neither men are genuine ethno-nationalists, and neither has what it takes to lead the BNP into parliament.
There will be a leadership election this summer. Eddy Butler will not be a candidate, at least not for the leadership of the BNP. He has made himself into an embarrassing irrelevance with his cranky promotion of the 'English' Democrats, which is a great pity because his blog has served a necessary purpose by exposing Griffin's wrongdoing.
We should gratefully acknowledge Eddy's contribution of the last ten months but we need to move on, in the sense of distancing ourselves, the party loyalists (as distinct from the Griffin cultists) from the treacherous liability and loose cannon Mr Butler has shown himself to be in the last couple of weeks. That was then and this is now. No one man is bigger than the party. Forgetting that fact has been Griffin's greatest mistake. It should perhaps not surprise us too much that one of his closest associates for many years, Eddy Butler, should make the same mistake.
