The 'English' Democrats: clowns, cowards, hypocrites plc
The video above, made before the 2010 general election, still appears on the web site of the English Democrats Party.
I defy any Englishman to watch this video of the clown Garry Bushell, spouting his cliche-ridden, 'cultural', civic 'nationalist', claptrap about the English, and Englishness, and still regard the English Democrats as a serious political party.
Bushell recites the names of several famous Englishmen but then ends his list with Kelly Holmes, who is neither English nor ethnically British. He recites a number of supposedly significant cultural artefacts, places and practices, which he claims are typically English, but ends the list with "Vindaloo". The Negro boxer Frank Bruno is mentioned, as someone of whom the English should be proud. This is all designed, of course, to demonstrate his political 'correctness' and multicultural credentials, despite his, and the English Democrats' ostensible opposition to the anti-English racism inherent in the ideology of political 'correctness' and of multiculturalism.
This hypocrisy, born out of fear of the "racist" accusation which they rightly anticipate will be made against any political party that stands up for the interests of any of the down-trodden indigenous peoples of these islands, effectively neutralizes the English Democrats as an agent of political change. It restricts them to emphasizing the 'safe', but secondary, issues of an English parliament, and making Saint George's Day a public holiday, rather than the crucial ones of ending immigration, and withdrawing from the European Union. The English Democrats cannot be taken seriously by any genuinely patriotic Englishman.
Like the foul-mouthed professional proletarian Garry Bushell himself, they are a comic turn, and though much of what they do dare to say is true, they hide their light under a Bushell.
