Somewhat belatedly jumping onto the bandwagon, Council leader Mike Freer has joined the calls for Finchley resident Damien McBride to be expelled from the Labour Party for his role in the shameful attempt to smear leading Conservative MPs, including David Cameron and George Osborne.
Mr McBride’s disgraceful behaviour was exposed by top blogger Guido Fawkes.
Following the condemnation of Mr McBride by Finchley & Golders Green MP Rudi Vis (himself no stranger to controversy following the disclosure that he effectively paid for his retirement home on the Suffolk coast at our expense), Mike Freer told the Ham & High Newspaper:
“Smear campaigns and gutter politics should have no place in the democratic process.”Like Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Mr Freer was not elected leader by the people he leads, so we are unsure of his suitability to lecture anybody about the democratic process.
However, in the light of Cllr Freer’s comments, Barnet Council Watch wonders whether "Assassin in Heels” Spin Doctor McGearson will be receiving her P45 anytime soon?
