English Democrats

Description

The English Democrats were founded in 1998 by Robin Tilbrook as the English National Party, in response to calls for Scottish and Welsh devolution. They changed their name to English Democrats in 2002.

The English Democrats' main policy is the creation of an English Parliament with similar powers to the Scottish Parliament.

Their greatest electoral success so far was in 2009, when Peter Davies was elected Mayor of Doncaster.
