on the new English Democrat mayor

The English Democrats have their first elected Mayor.

The party which was born out of the Campaign for an English Parliament has won the Mayoral election in Doncaster, their candidate Peter Davies winning with 25,344. In recent times the party has come under criticism for being racist.

Among his planned policies:

  • a cut in councillor numbers from 63 to 21
  • scrapping the authority’s newspaper
  • capping of the mayor’s salary at a maximum £30,000 a year
  • referendum on the future governance of the borough
  • end to council literature being translated into other languages

Hmm
