EXCLUSIVE: UKIP stand down, giving the English Democrats a clear run to win again in the Doncaster Mayoral Election!

English Passport is delighted to announce that UKIP have obligingly stood down giving the English Democrats’ Mayoral Candidate, David Allen, a clear run against the Europhile Establishment political parties in Doncaster.

This shows the benefits of local discussions between the local Doncaster UKIP branch and the English Democrats, which ensured that there is now a clear and unified Euro-sceptic voting option for the Electorate of Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council!

There are now only 10 candidates on Doncaster’s Mayoral Ballot Paper.

We look forward to the results of this election in the hope that it heralds a new dawn of commonsense politics!

David Allen the English Democrats’ 2013 Mayoral Candidate for Doncaster, finished second in November 2012  South Yorkshire Police Commissioner elections,  and it was reported by observers at the count that almost all of UKIP’s first preference voters had voted English Democrats as second preference (and visa-versa).

Analysis

After 10 years of having an elected mayor, Doncaster decided it liked the idea, voting to keep the system in last year’s referendum.

It has not been without controversy and whoever wins this fourth mayoral election will have some big problems in the inbox.

One of the first jobs may be to hand over Children’s Services to an independent body. The Government says it is not performing well enough and a report due out at the end of May might see Doncaster become the first council ever to have to give up one of its departments.

The Council cut £25m and 300 jobs in its last budget and, like all of our councils, faces taking more out of the balance sheet next year.

Cue frantic electioneering. Votes will be counted at Doncaster Racecourse this year, we’ve got the runners and riders, get your racing puns in now; we’ll need them.

Last year people in Doncaster opted to keep an elected mayor, with 62% voting in favour of the system. The turnout was 30.5%.

Doncaster has had a directly-elected mayor since 2002. Peter Davies has held the post since June 2009.

Mr Davies will seek re-election as an independent candidate after parting ways with the English Democrats, over the celebration of St George’s Day in Doncaster.

The English Democrats will be represented by David Allen who recently stood for the position of South Yorkshire Police Commissioner and finished second.

John Brown, who sought election as MP for Barnsley East in 2010, will represent the Liberal Democrats while Martin Drake won the Conservative party nomination.

The Trade Unionists and Socialists Against Cuts candidate is Mary Jackson, who launched her campaign for mayor at a rally on 2 April attended by general secretary of the RMT transport workers union Bob Crow.

Doncaster Council’s Askern Spa ward member Ros Jones will stand for Labour alongside Tony Ward, independent, and Save Doncaster Libraries campaigner Doug Wright, standing under the banner ‘Save Your Services’.

Independent candidate Michael Maye and National Front candidate Dave Owen, both of whom stood in 2009, complete the list.
