Good news for Coleman!
Following revelations by Not The Barnet Times that Brian Coleman is to receive £10,000 of taxpayers’ money for legal expenses, a welcome diversion arrives from City Hall where Boris Johnson has instructed Barnet to build 15 new sites for Travellers over the next 8 years.
Cllr Coleman is a well known supporter of the Travelling community, having recently described them as itinerant labourers who should “stay put in Ireland”, and he will no doubt welcome the opportunity to speak out against Boris’s plans.
Mr Coleman is currently under investigation by the Standards Committee for his intemperate e-mail attack on fellow blogger Rog T whom he described as “obsessive” and “poisonous”, as well as calling him a liar.
Regular readers might recognise the similarity between Coleman’s comments and the famous legal case of Pot versus Kettle.
Two weeks ago, Cllr Coleman used his Mayoral inauguration speech to launch an astonishing attack on the blogging community whom, he claimed, would drive voters into the arms of the BNP.
Not The Barnet Times can only imagine the busloads of voters who will flock to the BNP once Coleman has given us his opinion on the proposals for Travellers in his own inimitable way.
