Can we please have your Expenses for the GE campaign. Or is the paypals fund such a secret?

Perhaps a few words at the meetings could be spent on the Government's continued intention to overrule the democratically elected mayor of Doncaster.

The mayor's plans he was elected to the job to implement have been undermined by the council.

"Davies, who was elected on a rightwing "anti-political correctness" platform, was described as "not averse to provocative and inflammatory statements". While recognising the history of problems on the authority, the commission said Davies "does not always act in a way which demonstrates the need for an elected mayor to lead his authority and represent all the people in Doncaster"."

The mayor was elected because of his brusque nature. He was not elected to do what the council executive demand and it should not be for a quango to decide how the mayor should and should not behave.
