English Democrats Party policy on the EU

I have been asked about the EU stance of the English Democrats Party who are fielding Garry Bushell in the South Staffordshire campaign. The detail may be read from this link, but the main thrust is contained in the sections quoted below:

The EDP favours European co-operation and trade but not a European political entity which determines the independence, sovereignty, and democratic institutions of European states..

...The aim from the beginning was to enmesh the states of Europe in an economic, political and military union from which they could not break free. That goal was, and still is, considered more important than the democratic nicety of explaining the goal to the electorate and seeking its approval.

The states of the EU cannot be successfully run as either an economic or social whole. Their economic and cultural circumstances are very different. Each needs to be governed in a way which accords not only with material needs but also with the democratic, cultural and other traditions of the indigenous nations. The one-size-fits-all approach of EU institutions is a recipe for disaster.

The EU has become a top heavy and outdated bureaucratic hulk which is unsuited to an age when the people of Europe need democratic nation-states to protect them and their unique cultures from the excesses of global corporations, global institutions and the global economy. The EU is a part of the problem, not the solution.
