You will be hearing from me

On Saturday I gave a 40 minute address to the English Democrats National Conference, on Broadening The Appeal of the Teds (The English Democrats).

The party uniquely puts people first, and will from hereon put that first in its messaging.

It was a lively session and I was interrupted mid-flow a couple of times.  If only more people knew there was a political party that was anti-war, pro-common law, pro-rule of law and has so many other great policies.

The Teds are blanked by the main  media and get barred by Facebook algorithms etc.  That’s how good they are and how great a threat to the main parties and the media.

I am working with a team to develop the leafleting and a direct to voter communications strategy.  Join the party at

    Pleased to hear you had a good conference Tap and wish you and the TEDs well. It looks from the map that the TEDS are planning to reincorporate the City of London back into England?

  2. Tapestry says:

    If they want to go independent, let us know!

  3. newensign says:

    A good point Tap, but I think its the other way around can we claim independence from them, since when the UK went bankrupt in the early 1800’s they control the UK government through permanent secretaries, the military and its remembrancer in Parliament?

  4. Weaver says:

    Well done for what sounds like a very good conference.

    Newensign difficulty? Probably impossibility. That makes it all the more fascinating. Most people believed we would lose the Pound in 2001, yet somehow it was saved. Without that battle we would never have had Brexit. I describe some of those events in my autobiography. The more impossible people believe something to be, the greater the opportunity to change peoples’ minds.

      Thanks for your comments Tap, I am not trying to be negative, but most people, I’m not saying you, have no idea where the control lies! Yes with so called Brexit we gained a few things of little significance. Yes we have the pound but not true Sterling. Up to around the 1960’s the pound note said “promise to pay the bearer 1 pound sterling” which meant a pound of silver. Now the lowest value note says “promise to pay the bearer five pounds”!! Five pounds of what”??? Its fiat currency like the Euro, dollar etc. VAT has not been removed an EU tax, nor have our imperial measures been restored. The Bible says “who can make war with the Beast?” also “to come out of it” I do hope the TEDS will be able to overcome these great obstacles!

        Most people have given up trying Newensign. If we’re all dead already then I can only agree with the naysayers, but if there is even a chance of future life, I would prefer to try. In the Teds, I see hope. With the Pound gone we would be under the yoke more firmly, however bad things are as of right now. You have to keep pushing if you want more. The battles fought twenty years ago cannot deliver forever when the enemy never sleeps.

    This may seem unfair, but my mailbox has numerous posts from the English Democrats, and every one pushes a free badge; ‘Gold Membership’ and a free lunch – and nothing more.

    Nostalgia for former generations who gave their all (and mine did their duty), the ED come over as High Street suitcase salesmen from the 1950’s.

    • ROTH says:

      My free badge never turned up.

    • Tapestry says:

      That’s where we are now Derek. That’s why I want to work on the party’s PR as it could be way better that it has been. Obviously I’m a ‘new boy’ and not in any position to change things myself. However most of my current proposals are being accepted. As to the actual content of the party’s policies and philosophy they are the best I have ever come across. If we want to get out of the Westminster Liblabcon, it’s going to take a bit of work. At the heart of the party there are trades unions (independent – The England Workers Union), lawyers like Robin Tilbrook, academics and the like – not sales and marketing types who make it all slick. The product is superb. The advertising needs to be worked on. There is a big opportunity if we can get it right.

      The promise of the free dinners is always adhered to. But where are the political messages in the e-shots? I can see how the situation has come about with well-meaning folk put in charge of the levers of communication, but I haven’t found any barriers erected to new ideas being adopted either. It’s the same old story. You get out what you put in. The teds are very open to discussion, and need input from the people like you Derek if you want to see change.
