This is not just arrogance. This is Brian Coleman arrogance.
Most of us are familiar with the advertising slogan for Marks & Spencer: “This is not just food. This is M&S food.”
Older readers might also recall the M&S sales philosophy: “The customer is always right, even when he’s wrong.”
Don’t Call Me Dave was reminded of this after the council meeting on Tuesday where there was a procedural issue as to whether a councillor could ask a supplementary question.
Mayor of Barnet, Brian Coleman, resolved the matter by declaring: “The Mayor is always right, even when he’s wrong”.
Journalist Adam Bienkov has written an article suggesting that Brian Coleman is not only wrong, but he may have acted unlawfully in Chairing a meeting of the London & Fire Emergency Planning Authority.
