Veterans' parade cancelled due to 'lack of facilities' weeks after gay pride march is held | Mail Online (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1047596/Veterans-parade-cancelled-lack-facilities-weeks-gay-pride-march-held.html)

"War heroes have blasted a council after being forced to abandon plans for a Veterans' Day parade due to lack of official support. Councillors in Doncaster were heavily involved in a gay pride march last weekend and local dignitaries the focal point of the annual Civic parade earlier in the summer." Doncaster elected Mayor Martin Winter in 2002, to make decisions like this.

Its a sign of the times. Next week will be the color-disadvantaged weight-challenged lesbians turn.

And I didn't put anything contentious in the above so here's hoping its not deleted!

I dropped Winter a line last night. He's the guy who, when he realised he was coming to the end of his second and final term (iaw Labour Party rules).. he left the party.

Prescott's vision for local, elected democracies suggested we'd all be exposed to credible, local g'ment. I said at the time, that all we'd get would be another layer of beaurocracy obsessed second class politicians who couldn't hack it on the main stage, and all hell bent of feathering their own nests and to hell with the people. The way Doncaster Council's excuses about this have twisted and turned, show how completely devoid of integrity it is.

I'm sure that ARRSE, Goat and Rum Ration have picked up on this, but perhaps if they haven't, could someone who also is a member there let them know?

Perhaps it's just that far, far more people would turn up to watch a Veteran's parade than would want to watch a few homosexuals blowing whistles? Hence the facilities will only cope with a small crowd?

You know I really hate to say this, as I lived in England and still love it to this day;

But, England is turning into a really, really big San Francisco. :(
