English Democrats Will Stand In Four Seats

According to the Echo:, the English Democrat party are standing in four seats in Rayleigh – Central, Lodge, Trinity and Whitehouse.

This will certainly make the elections more interesting this year. Three-way contests between ourselves, the English Democrats and the Tories are going to be hard to predict.

  • How many do I see?

    Well, the big battle is in Sweyne Park, Con versus Lib Dem. You will notice that the English Democrats are not standing there.

    Then there’s the 4 wards in Rayleigh where the Eng Dems are standing. That makes them unpredictable three-way contests.

    Outside Rayleigh, I just can’t see Labour gaining any seats off the Tories. I expect the B NP to stand in Hullbridge, Rochford, Hockley East and Great Wakering , but , despite their worst efforts, thankfully I don’t think they will win.

    The Conservatives could lose a seat in Rochford to an independent.

    (We should make a very big distinction between the B NP and the English Democrats. Although the English Democrats seem to walk around looking angry all the time, they are a ‘clean’ right-of centre party.)

    The Tories may well make a gain in Barlin and Sutton.!

    We still have lots of seats where we don’t have candidates. If you want to drop us a line, Jeff….

  • Is there an independant standing in Rochford?

    I think this is going to be a very interesting year especially in Ashingdon – I wonder what will happen there
