EFDDGroup Charter

  • Freedom and co-operation among people of different States

    Committed to the principles of democracy, freedom and co-operation among Nation States, the Group favours an open, transparent, democratic and accountable co-operation among sovereign European States and rejects the bureaucratisation of Europe and the creation of a single centralised European superstate.

  • More democracy and respect of People's will

    Convinced that the legitimate level for democracy lies with the Nation States, their regions and parliaments since there is no such thing as a single European people; the Group opposes further European integration (treaties and policies) that would exacerbate the present democratic deficit and the centralist political structure of the EU. The Group favours that any new treaties or any modification of the existing treaties are to be submitted to the peoples’ vote through free and fair national referenda in the Member States. The Group does believe that the legitimacy of any power comes from the will of its Peoples and their right to be free and democratically ruled.

  • Respect for Europe's history, traditions and cultural values

    Peoples and Nations of Europe have the right to protect their borders and strengthen their own historical, traditional, religious and cultural values. The Group rejects xenophobia, anti-Semitism and any other form of discrimination.

  • Respect for national differences and interests: Freedom of votes

    Agreeing on embodying these principles in its proceedings, the Group respects the freedom of its delegations and Members to vote as they see fit.

European Issues

  • This video aims to highlight a sample of just 8 local issues upon which the EU Parliament has usurped the control of central and local government in the UK - often to disastrous effect. Some appear scandalous, others farcical, but all illustrate that the EU is the hidden local issue.

  • Those of you aware of the UK's constitutional history, Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights, and Habeas Corpus, may think that your basic freedoms are protected under English law. Well you'd be wrong. Our rights are being undermined and destroyed by the creation of the European Union's own system of criminal law. It is an ambitious plan, that has scale and reach that is truly frightening...

  • An analysis of UK population growth and immigration. Britain is an over crowded island...In the last 30 years an increasing population has made its mark on both the urban and rural landscape. Our country has changed forever.England is now the most densely populated country in Europe - we now have more people per square mile than China, Japan or India. Britain has an official population of nearly 64 million - increasing at an unprecedented rate and putting an unsustainable strain on the fabric of the UK - the evidence is everywhere...
