Anglo-Scottish co-operation...

I had given up on pro-English and pro-Scottish political groups getting on and supporting each other, but the English Democrats proved me wrong (rather too far to "the Right" for my liking, but they aren't racist/BNPish)...

Vote SNP in 2007 and connect with the English!

The on-going scandal of English students being the only ones in the UK to face University top-up fees this September had a new twist today when the SNP came out in condemnation at the blatant "anti-English" policies pursued by New Labour, Lib Dems and Conservatives alike.

The SNP have exposed the spiteful anti-English pact between Lib Dems and New Labour in Scotland, who jointly agreed to inflict extra financial penalties on English university students should they try to avoid paying English top-up fees (imposed let us not forget by Scottish and Welsh MPs!!)

In a public repudiation of this disgusting example of blatant anti-Englishness, the SNP have announced their intention to remove all punitive charges on English students wishing to study in Scotland, and give English students exactly the same rights as any other citizen living within the EU if they are elected to the Scottish Parliament next year.

The English Democrats congratulate the SNP for this wholely proper gesture. The EDP condemns all three main political parties in England for their continued discrimination against the people of England and urge all fairminded Scots, to vote for the Scottish National Party in the forthcoming election as it is clear that only the Scottish Nationalists understand the importance of fairness and equality in political life, without it the Liberal Democrats, New Labour and Conservatives will continue their inexorable decline - something we heartily welcome.

What is "too right" about the English Democrats, please explain your unjustified slur on this party, that is only trying to represent all the people of England.

Blimey, someone generally on the "left" praises the EDP and I get abuse from someone who prefers to remain anonymous.

Really I shouldn't have added that bit about the EDP being "too right" but I was quite clear in my post that as far as I am concerned they are NOT racists or a respectable version of the BNP. Or is that an "unjustified slur" too? You seem to be one of those people who tends to see the glass half-empty rather than half-full.

Reading your comments I have come to a decision: not to recognise or enter into discussion with people who leave comments under the aegis "anonymous". I don't answer anonymous phone calls so why should I answer anonymous blog posts? Better still- get your own blog and let's see what you've got to say for yourself.
