According to Salisbury Journal, councilor Mary Douglas was removed from the portfolio for social mobility and skills on Tuesday, November 12, “with immediate effect”, but she is still assigned as a councilor. Leader of the council Philip Whitehead told the publication took the responsibility for removing Douglas as a portfolio holder and thanked her for everything she had done on this position. Last week the Tory politician rejected a motion to give a £1,000 grant towards Salisbury Pride parade, saying that she loved and supported LGBT people, but not the idea of Pride, which she called a misleading ideology run by a powerful lobby. “I do not want to be a part of promoting this, and I want to be clear this is not just my view, I represent a large number of people, some who are afraid to say something,” she said.
