Monday was Doncaster’s brand-spanking-new Mayor’s first day on the job, and his first engagement of the day was an interview with BBC Radio Sheffield’s Toby Foster. We hope Mayor Davies didn’t think he was in for an easy ride for his first official interview, because that’s not what he got.
We have just read the transcript of Peter Davies interview with BBC Radio Sheffield’s Toby Foster. Which you can read here @ The Welcome To The North blog. It could be described as ineptly hilarious, and probably will be by non-Doncaster residents, but the next 4 years of Davies’ mayoralty will heap more shame on Doncaster council and will be an even bigger disaster, for us who live here, than the whole of Winter’s three terms of office put together. Davies’ answers to the interviewer’s questions on his main electoral pledges can be summarised by this response, I dunno… again, I’ve got to find this out.
The new mayor made election pledges that he cannot fulfill. You may say that all politicians do , but his reasons are novel;
1. He didn’t check on the legality of any of his promises. Many are illegal and therefore impossible.
2. He didn’t think he could possibly be elected. His major concern at the count was saving his deposit.
So if you voted for him on the basis of his manifesto promises, I’m afraid you were not only stupid, but duped by a bloke who has no idea.
