A lesson in good manners for Brian Coleman

This blog may at times give the impression that we don't like Barnet Conservatives per se. Nothing could be further from the truth. In actual fact some of them are very nice people. Some of them would never dream of treating residents in a high handed or rude manner. It is just a shame that some of them do and let themselves and us down. This was exemplified by the contrasting emails sent to a local resident, Mr Julian Silverman in response to an invitation to the BAPS organised local community forum. The email also contained a report detailing the previous meeting. Compare and contrast the response from Councillor Kate Salinger and Councillor Brian Coleman. They both received the same email. Once again classy Kate shows why she's respected by everyone in Barnet on all sides of the political divide. A much needed and timely lesson in politeness and good manners !

Dear Julian,

Thank you for sending me a copy of your press release.

I am actively trying not to attend too many extra committee meetings at
present and will probably not manage to attend any of your future
meetings.

However, I am always interested in other people viewpoints and will read
what you have written, as long as you continue to send it to me.

Kind regards,

Cllr. Kate

Please do not e mail me again under any circumtances

(Note : Councillor Brian Coleman recieves over £120,000 a year from the public purse
to represent Mr Silverman. Cllr Salinger was the only Barnet Conservative not to 
vote to give herself a payrise in 2010 and got publicly humiliated by Coleman for this
in the Council chamber).

Kate Salinger - the only decent Tory councillor in Barnet.

Brian Coleman - an obnoxious, ignorant, arrogant twat.
