Brian Coleman assisting the Police with their inquiries

The Barnet Times reports that Mayor of Barnet and all round embarrassment to the Conservative Party, Brian Coleman, is assisting the police with their inquiries.

It is alleged that he made an intimidating phone call to independent candidate Linda Edwards in contravention of election law.

If convicted, Coleman faces suspension from office and almost certain expulsion from the Conservative Party, which would put paid to his as yet undeclared candidature for leadership of the council.

Coleman told the Times he couldn’t recall the phone call. Does anyone believe him? Even someone as important as our great and wonderful Mayor would remember a phone call like that. If he didn’t make the comments he is alleged to have made, why didn’t he just say “Not me, guv”?
