Nu-Labour will go into a catatonic trance when they take this on board.
The new Mayor of Doncaster, who rejoices in the wonderfully English name of Peter Davies (that’s a good start) and who is a member of the English Democrats Party, has, from day one…
Cut his own salary from £73,000 to £30,000.
Is cutting the number of councilors from 63 to 21 – quote “If 100 senators can run America I can’t see how 63 councillors are needed to run Doncaster”.
Has withdrawn Doncaster from the Local Government Association and the Local Government Information Unit, saving ratepayers another £200,000 – quote “they are just talking shops”.
Is ‘untwinning’ Doncaster from nine other cities round the world quote “they are just for people to fly off and have a binge at the council’s expense”
Has promised to end council funding for Doncaster’s International Women’s Day, Black History Month and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month.
Is planning to rid Doncaster of its Diversity Officer.
Would like to cut translation services for non-English speakers, but it is already being claimed that this is illegal under the ECHR (I’m not sure that it is actually)
Needless to say Harridan Harman will be burning the midnight oil trying to find a way of stopping him in his tracks – but lucky old Doncaster ratepayers eh? Now other towns are clamouring for a Mayor like Peter.
I bet there is more time and effort going into preventing the spread of ‘Peter Davies type Mayors’ than there is into supressing Swine Flu.
Move over Dan Hannan, I’ve got a new hero.
He’s got an e-mail address if you like to send him your support…….firstname.lastname@example.org
