This was very much an austerity campaign for us in Morley and our resources were spread alot thinner than last year. Nevertheless we did our very best under the circumstances and I believe our votes were respectable enough.
The English Democrats have had some very encouraging results from across the country which highlight the progress which our party continues to make.
For me though, the best news of the day was the result of the Doncaster referendum on whether the Elected Mayor system should be retained. Righly or wrongly, this referendum has been billed as a vote of confidence on the English Democrats and our Mayor Peter Davies and were the people of Doncaster to have voted to abolish the Elected Mayor system this would inevitably have been portrayed as a snub to our party.
Congratulations to all English Democrats candidates and thank you to everyone who voted for our party in yesterday's local elections.
The progress of the English Democrats continues!
