CLAIRE Doncaster, one of the British National Party’s successful candidates in last May’s local elections in Dagenham, was evicted from her council home last week for failing to pay her rent.
Now Councillor Doncaster’s position as an elected member of the council is in jeopardy. She owes more than £2,000 in rent.
After bailiffs evicted her last week Councillor Doncaster from her flat, she moved in with her parents. Her mother, Sandra Doncaster, is also a BNP councillor – and she is also under threat of eviction for unpaid council tax.
The council members’ code of conduct says: “A member must not in his/her official capacity, or in any other circumstance, conduct themselves in a manner which could reasonably be regarded as bringing their office or authority into disrepute.”
