BBC Survey shows – Yorkshire nationalism is batted out of the ground – Calls for the Yorkshire Party to disband!

Eddie Bone, the Campaign Director for the Campaign for an English Parliament, said:- 

“The Yorkshire Party seeks independence and wants to be a nation distinct from England with its own Yorkshire Parliament, however the latest BBC and YouGov survey on English identity shows that 82% of people living in Yorkshire don’t just identify as being English BUT are proud to be English”. 

Eddie Bone continued:-

“We say that the time has come to give a greater voice to England as a nation because this would also be giving a greater voice to the counties, town and cities of England. An English government would effectively silence the Yorkshire Party’s calls to break up England”.

 

“The Yorkshire Party’s claim that they have any significant support for an autonomous Yorkshire now look ridiculous and hollow. Their credibility has been batted out of the ground by English pride and the Yorkshire nationalism is now bowled out! The Yorkshire Party should give any idea of Yorkshire independence up because it is clear that the Yorkshire County of England doesn’t want it”

 “Yorkshire people see themselves as a strong county and as part of  England as a nation,  The Yorkshire Pary should respect the wishes of the majority of the people living in Yorkshire and disband!”.

    To be blunt no one is going to pay a blind bit of interest to Eddie Bone when he states they should “disband”. Better to work with these groups on the benefits of a “unified” England – and taking into account the desires and cultures of the various regions in England as the goal.

    Eddie Bone is correct, especially as the division of the English regions is backed by the European Union. The EU does not want the regions together as it strengthens national identity and self governance which is contrary to everything the EU stands for. I have heard that the EU is a big supporter of The Yorkshire Party and this is their inspiration to continue their agenda because they have powerful backing, although this is something they will not reveal, if it is true. Maybe it is time for some freedom of information requests to find out the truth?

    Since just 2006 school children in Cornwall have rightly been allowed to record themselves (or via their parents for the younger ones) as ‘ethnically’ Cornish or at least identifying as Cornish, on the annual Schools Census (PLASC). Since then the number identifying as Cornish has risen from less than 24% to 51.1%.
