The UK Election smaller parties results
In Wessex, the Wessex Regionalists - Party of Wessex - did reasonably well. The candidate for Witney, Oxfordshire, in the far east of Wessex, polled 7th out of 12, doubling his previous number of votes. Considering that Witney is a town at the very edge of Wessex, the growth in Wessex regionalism in this area is very positive. The WR were a whisker away from coming in the top half of the candidates. The WR report is on their website: http://wessexregionalists.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/onwards-and-upwards.html
In Wales, the pro European Union Plaid Cymru failed to advance. This contrasted with their counterparts in Scotland who gained 56 out of 59 seats in their country. Wales has a growing English population, with Plaid Cymru having shamefully taken part in deals which have seen English people moved in en masse by English councils. The genuine resistance to the London Ruling Class comes from smaller parties who are as yet not well enough organised to make much of an impact. SWPE is in contact with some of the smaller organisations and seeks contact with others. SWPE supports all parties who seek the exit of the UK from the EU, followed by the end of the UK itself.
The Patriotic Socialist Party gained 3 seats in the local elections, winning unopposed. This strategy is one which we must encourage. Getting hardworking activists onto local councils is a way of proving to the electorate that our people are worthy of support. This is far better than attempting to gain MPs with no prior experience of representing the people. An example of failed tactics was the work of the National Front in London who gained 49 votes across the entire capital, proving how it is futile to campaign from a position of weakness.
