Cliff Dixon, deputy London area chairman for the English Democrats and their campaign manager forthe 2012 elections in London. Resignation letter.Dear fellow NC MembersIt is with regret that I tender my resignation from The English Democrats.I can no longer see the party making the breakthrough that the country needs whilst certain peoplecontinue to drag our reputation in to the gutter and the Chairman is unwilling or unable to stop thisfrom happening.Many of our members in London have worked hard to rebuild the party from the ashes of the lastGeneral Election, and any advances we are making are being offset by the constant need for damagelimitation because of the stream of ill thought out rhetoric on blog and Facebook sites.It is also a source of worry that the elite at the top of the party seem to see it as their own tool thatthey can do as they like with without thought of the damage they do to our reputation and in somecases in flagrant violation of National Council decisions.I will list some of my reasons for leaving below, and leave you to make up your own minds

The email from Steve Uncles is constantly regurgitated and is not only distasteful but usedby the opponents of our party to put off a section of the electorate that should be part of our naturalvote.The party put out a statement, but this was watered down from the original to the version thatsurfaced. More importantly, not only has Steve Uncles not apologised for a lack judgement oversending the email (Which could have killed the whole thing stone dead), he keeps revisiting it on his
‘English Passport’ site, including a statement that modern English Nationalism is not compatible with
Irish unionism. It is not our remit, as an English party, to keep revisiting the issues of NorthernIreland, and is causing an image problem that is completely unnecessary.He has also put up a petition on the Government website asking for people to sign a petition to getNorthern Ireland kicked out of the UK
 –
This is traceable back to him, and as a party member reflectsbadly on the movement.It has also been noted by myself that whenever this subject is brought up with Robin Tilbrook, he
gets annoyed about ‘disloyalty’ regarding the leaking of the email rather than the contents
of theemail itself.Eddy Butler

It was agreed at the last NC meeting that Eddy Butler would have to come before theCouncil to have his membership ratified due to his former high profile membership of the NationalFront and the BNP. This is consistent with article 3.2 (e) of the party constitution.On 10th September, one of my members in London was emailed by Robin Tilbrook to say -Yes we are on the up. We also have the man who was the driving force behind the BNP's period of 
 
electoral success coming over to us. I mean Eddy Butler.I asked to see this email to make sure there was no misunderstanding, as those of you at the last NCwill know that this is in complete contravention of the agreed course of action over his membership.Indeed, Eddy Butler is only getting a hearing because Robin threatened to resign if we did not listento his reasons for wanting to join.Since then, Eddy Butler has posted items on his Facebook page that are in contradiction of our partymanifesto, and has made numerous calls to people on his blog site to come across to the EDP as it is
their ‘new home’. You can view how much he rates his new ‘home’ from his blog site, link attached
Eddy Butler All about the BNP, nothing to do with the EDP.
I also have the screen capture from Steve Uncle’s Facebook site that is doing the rounds to say that
he has been working with Eddy Butler for the last 2 years to wreck the BNP, and that UKIP are next

 Whilst I find this proba
bly to be the delusional ranting of the ‘Political Brain’ from Dartford, this is
again in the public domain and does us no good.
It is also noted that Eddy Butler had run several ‘teasers’ about which party he was going to go to,
and then announced it on his blog site 48 hours after Andrew Brons had lost the BNP leadershipchallenge to Nick Griffin. His own blog states that his first choice would be to reform the BNP, but
after that going to a party with a ‘similar’ manifesto that is ripe for change would
be the No 2 optionrather than forming a new party.I will give you some links to make up your own mindsEddy Butler: THE FUTURE Eddy Butler: HEADLESS CHICKENS 
Steve Uncle’s Removal from the NC –
 
Within 2 weeks of his ‘resignation’ (Which was only tendered
by the chairman when 12 out of 12 voted through a no confidence motion), Steve Uncles was on the
BBC as a ‘spokesman’ for the party. Robin advised me that this was because he was the only person
in the area available to do the job.Neither London Chairman Roger Cooper or myself, as Vice-Chairman, were called and told that therewas a need to get someone down there. Indeed, Frank Roseman lives in Westminster but was notcontacted by the Chairman, despite being a far better public speaker than Steve Uncles. Constantly
using a discredited member who has an awful internet footprint as a ‘spokesman’ is not, in my
opinion, what the NC wanted when he was removed from his position, and paints us in a bad light.The South East Area Elections

We were advised at the last NC that Sean Varnham had not sent inhis statement to go out with the ballot forms for the SE area election. This was incorrect.
 
It also needs to be noted that Sean was not sent the full party list for Sussex until well after the ballotpapers had gone out, and even then they had no telephone numbers or email addresses for him tocontact and canvass for his candidacy. Steve Uncles, as a former SE area chairman, had all thisinformation and therefore an unfair advantage (Although he still threw his toys out of the pramabout me sending out an email to Kent and Surrey in support of Sean, despite those areas comingunder the purview of London during the GLA campaign).It is also of interest to note that the closing date for voting was 9th September, and the date of thecount was changed to the AGM after the votes were in
 –
Where are the ballot papers between thesetimes? They are being sent to the Norwich PO Box number, so what methods are in place to stopgerrymandering? I believe very few, as Steve Uncles has posted on his blog site that irrespective of 
the vote ‘I will be back on the NC after the AGM’.
 A Dog serving two masters
 –
It is to be noted with regards to the previous posting about Eddy Butlerthat he is still in the paid employ of the MEP for Yorkshire, Andrew Brons, yet wishes to join the EDP.Chris Beverly, our new Leeds Chairman and recently appointed Facebook admin, is also on thepayroll of the EU as an assistant to Andrew Brons. Whilst I have not met Mr Beverley, and Iunderstand from Mike Cassidy that he is a decent guy, what happens when the Euro elections comearound and he has to choose between party and job? He has not resigned from his post as he needsto make a living
 –
Yet he will make that living by OPPOSING the EDP in the next Euro Elections. Such aconflict of interest would not be allowed in any company, it is the equivalent to a Barclays Bankmanager working for Lloyds as a paid advisor and with access to company confidential documents.You are either an English patriot or a BNP employee, there is no middle ground on this one.Contact with UKIP
 –
Robin advised us at an NC meeting last year that he had been offered the DeputyLeadership of UKIP during the negotiations regarding the Alliance for Democracy if he stood down allthe EDP candidates at the 2010 General Election. He advised us that he declined, and that UKIP hadstood candidates against ours when they had seen our list of candidates as a spoiler tactic.We were told that UKIP are completely untrustworthy, and a motion was passed that no furthermeetings should be had with their party without it being run past the NC first.Robin then announced at the last NC that he and Derek Hilling had met with UKIP in July to discusspossible mergers. This was done without the knowledge or permission of the NC, in breach of aprevious motion which was brought abo
ut by Robin’s revelations. It would appear that NC motions,
even when brought about by the chairman, have no validity when applied to him.Steve Uncles
 –
Need I say more? Removed from the NC, he still attacks party members on line withimpunity and brings the movement in to disrepute. In the last month he has made attacks uponStephen Morris, Michael Cassidy, Derek Hilling and myself on his blog site (In contravention of theCommunications policy document that has been ratified by the NC). He has also referred to a suicide
victim as a ‘fascist’ and had launched numerous tirades about UKIP under the logo ‘U
-
Tit’. He
constantly brings the party in to disrepute, and despite the attempts of the NC can do what he likeswith the protection of the chairman.Indeed
, I had a row with Robin by email last night because I posted a joke about Steve’s personality
being used as a contraceptive on my personal Facebook page, and got read the riot act
