‘Boris Johnson Of The North’ says he’s not having a gay day

June 7, 2009

English Democrat and newly elected Mayor of Doncaster, Peter Davies – the man with the Welsh name who wants to reclaim Monmouthshire – has threatened to cut funding to the town’s annual Gay Pride event. He says…

“My policy on gays and lesbians is very simple. I don’t think councils should be spending money on them parading through town advertising their sexuality.”

Davies (that’s definitely a Welsh name that is) hasn’t even begun his political career and he’s already attacked 11% of the population…

A statement from the Doncaster Pride Committee said…

“We believe everyone has a right to their opinion and if the newly elected mayor of Doncaster holds personal opinions about the staging of a Pride event in the borough we feel he is entitled to that view. However, in the last two years we have brought over 6,000 visitors into Doncaster and anticipate an audience this year of up to 8,000. These people spend money in Doncaster and come to enjoy a great day out.”

The organisers said they had received “massive support” from other agencies, including South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, South Yorkshire Police, the Home Office and a number of trade unions.

“The simple message is the show goes on. We as a committee are resolute in our aims to bring this event to Doncaster and will do so with or without support from Doncaster council.”
