Peter Davies, the English Democrats’ elected mayor of Doncaster, has quit the party. Davies is a former member of the Labour Party, the Conservatives and of UKIP, and now also a former member of the English Democrats, continuing to sit as an independent.
Peter Davies cited infiltration of the English Democrats by former (and in at least one case, current) BNP supporters as the reason for his defection.
The BNP has been convulsed by leadership problems and defections. Many former members have left, including one of the party’s two MEPs, Andrew Brons. His assistant, Chris Beverley recently defected from the BNP to the English Democrats.
So, the musical chairs continue, but who will be sitting where when the electoral tune stops?
