Mayor of Doncaster

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Who is this Bloke?

    A maverick mayor elected after promising to slash
    council spending, clear the streets of yobs and ditch politically correct services is the torchbearer for how towns should be run.
    On his first morning as Mayor of Doncaster in South
    Yorkshire , Peter Davies cut his salary from £73,000 to £30,000 then
    closed the councils newspaper for "peddling politics on the
    rates". Now three weeks into his job, Mr Davies is pressing
    ahead with plans he hopes will see the number of town councillors cut
    from 63 to just 21, saving taxpayers £800,000. Mr Davies said: "If
    100 senators can run the United States of America , I can't see how
    63 councillors are needed to run Doncaster ".
    He has withdrawn Doncaster from the Local Government Association and
    the Local Government Information Unit, saving another £200,000. Mr Davies said, "They are just talking shops".
    Doncaster is in for some serious un-twinning. "We are twinned with
    probably nine other cities around the world and they are just for
    people to fly off and have a binge at the councilsexpense".
    The mayors chauffeur-driven car has also been axed
    by Mr Davies and the driver given another job. Mr Davies, born and
    bred in Doncaster , swept to power in the May election with 24,244 votes
    as a candidate for the English Democrats, a party that proposes
    tight immigration curbs, an English Parliament and a law forcing every
    public buildingto fly the flag of St. George.
    He has promised to end council funding for
    Doncasters International Womens Day, Black History Month and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month.
    He said, "Politicians have got completely out of
    touch with what people want.
    "We need to cut costs. I want to pass on some savings I make in
    reduced taxes and use the rest for things we really need, like
    improved childrens services".

    Mr Davies has received messages from well wishers
    across the country and abroad as news of his no-nonsense approach
    spreads. Now its your
    chance to spread this most sensible way to run a
    town council and vote
    for common sense and common good, not just the whim
    of the few.
  2. A bloody good one by the sound of it.
  3. More of the same please...I hope Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester and London are all watching!
  4. He's already compromised on a number of issues after being appraised of the council's legal obligations. :roll:

    That said, my Conservative local council could start saving money by privatising the registry offices and marriage venues, closing schools and axing the Mayor's Daimler, robes and chain of office. They could also abolish themselves and transfer all their functions to central government, thus relieving their hard pressed council tax payers of that extra tax!

    Delayed action?

    A poem, by me;

    Well, I hope he isn't toast but I watch this space with interest.
  6. Like reading a Walt Disney script pure fairytale it will never happen.
  7. If this guy does what he has promised then bloody good luck to the people of Doncaster, :1:
  8. This will play about all too disappointing in today's modern Britain. Decent man takes up politics to make a 'difference' and will find himself destroyed by ultra left career socialists who are appalled at the flargrant commonsense being employed .
    Wouldnt it be wonderful that this quiet revolution was to succeed in Donny and then spread to the rest of the country.
  9. Next stop for Mr Davies defence minister :lol:
  10. But that would be promoting sailors' legendary sexual appetite for women in far flung places at the taxpayers expense. He'd abolish the RN and spend the money on the Vestigal Virgins of the Army?

    PS: is it true that Doncaster is going to be twinned with Potempkin?
  11. Thats wot I had in mind thingy. :lol:

    Radio Sheffield versus a Complete ******

    Yup. Davies sounds like a superb example of modern politics. Cornered by a radio presenter, because he's promised his dumbassed electorate the moon and when voted in, can't even find it in the sky.

    He sounds like many of the ********* here on RumRation who pedal their racist, sexist, xenophobic horseshit day in, day out.

    Davies is a bell-end.


  13. 'I'll find out whether I can do it' (when you elect me)and they fell for that one, god help us and the good people of Dumcaster.

    "I'll cut funding for Gay Pride"

    "Do the council fund Gay Pride?"

    "I don't know."

    Brilliant. You can see the knuckle draggers have voted him in because he doesn't like people who have differnet ethic backgrounds, have different political standpoints, read different newspapers or like people of the same sex.

    Doncaster is now back in the dark ages.

  15. Well Doncaster, it's now official; you're doomed.
  16. My former Headmaster rejoiced in the same name. His solution to everything was to wield a big long bamboo stick and hit you with it. :evil: :sad2: If they're related it probably explains why he's so incapable of thinking on the hoof.
  17. Hear hear! He's a jingoistic, fascist prat. I give him 6 months before he throws in the towel.
  18. Best of luck to the Guy----he obviously got the support of the people who voted anyway and in a majority .

    His voting campaign promises were probably hitting the right buttons with the voters ------- let him achieve what he can. As for his interview Q&As as the man said he will be letting his supporters know the reasons for not acheiving the desired aims of his ''election manifest''

    Good start anyway --long may he continue. Boris is doing quite well in London too---

  19. Weakness poverty & ignorance all good fertile ground for the likes of him to plant his seeds of hate in.

    What? So what you do, these days, is vote in an elected representitive who coasts home on a wave of populist tub-thumping (with the likes of Greenie voting him in like the blind leading the blind) and when the person gets into office, he has no idea how the machinery of local government politics works. For that matter, you may as well have a 10 year old child in office.

    Don't forget, for the wonderous concept of a democratised society to work, it means that whoever is eventually elected represents all people in their appointed constituency or borough. This is the fabulous idea we are currently pedalling around the world to races colours and creeds who really don't understand it and we call them savages.

    The Mayor of Doncaster is a cretinous little bigot, unfit for office, voted in by a majority in minority of morons, racists and *********.

    You know it, Greenie.
