    In fairness, Le Pen's place in the final two was down to the open ballot in the 1st round, being the only real right wing choice and about 14 centre left choices, getting him to the final 2 by about 0.5%, with Jospin and Chirac pretty much splitting the left vote, and the other token lefties taking just enough away from them two to let Le Pen through. In the second round pretty much most of the nation rallied against him, recieved about 15% of the vote in a 2 horse race against 'Mr Popularity' Chirac.

    I actually read that on an anti-BNP leaflet - shudder to think of people enjoying that quote
    That's weird, considering the BNP's anti-Islamic stance has involved the claim that "Islam and women's rights don't mix."

    Well the thing is, it might be the BNP stance, but the BNP is really just a collection of the biggests ****s in the country so its not really a surprise that one of them says something like that.

    It isnt relevant from an English Democrat POV. It is relevant that such a staunch Labour stronghold like Doncaster has rejected Labour. This should send shock waves around the Party.

    There is a long line of corruption and lack of accountability in Doncaster politics due to Labour being able to win every election no matter what their councillors did. At last there is a serious backlash against pathetic and corrupt leadership.

    Mayor Winter (the last Mayor) was Labour and was in charge of a mess.

    Doncaster is failing in many areas such as social care, crime, unemployment, immigration, violence and HIV infection rates.

    The election of Peter Davies (though remember he won with only 22.6 % of the vote against split opposition) is a reaction to the continued failure of certain people to address these important quality of life issues.
