THE English Democrats' have adopted its national chairman Robin Tilbrook to stand as a candidate in the General Election for his home seat Brentwood & Ongar.

Mr Tilbrook, a solicitor, has played an active role in community affairs, including a legal advisor at both the Brentwood and Epping Citizens Advice Bureaux, and is a former church warden.

“I am delighted to have this opportunity to represent my local constituency. If elected I shall represent the interests of our constituency, but also I will continue to campaign tirelessly for England's interests to be properly looked after.”

He added: “The tired old British establishment clans seem to dislike England and are happy to waste English taxpayers' money on subsidising the EU, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, which collectively, according to the latest and verified official figures, costs every year, �61bn of English taxpayers' money.

“Cutting these subsidies would, at a stroke, save more money than any other party's proposals to save money without making any cuts in English services. Indeed we could have more money to spend on our people here in Brentwood and Ongar.”
