Mayor right to pull the plug

Have your say

May I jump the gun before any of our three Labour, MPs or our army of Labour councillors start pouring scorn on the decision by the elected Mayor Peter Davies and his cabinet, to withdraw council tax payer funding for welfare grounds around Doncaster.

These Welfare grounds have been used as a tool since the 1970s by our local Labour MPs and Labour councillors at election times, giving the public the impression it was they who had provided these amenities, when in fact it was CISWO, (Coal industry Social Welfare Organisation) who put up the original money.

Let our local politicians now find funding instead of expecting every council tax payer to fund these grounds, that are only used by a small minority.
