Last night we saw another sign that the Barnet Conservatives have finally run out of patience with Brian Coleman, his antics, his slapdash approach to the job and the contempt with which he treats his colleagues. Senior Councillor and former MP John Marshall berates Coleman for not bothering to turn up for a Budget and Performance Overview and Scrutiny Committee Meeting and asks the Leader of the Council, Richard Cornelius to take action to sort him out.
Councillor Marshall clearly states that Colemans slapdash approach is costing the Taxpayer money. He quite rightly states that he'd rather see money be spent on education and schools under Andrew Harper, than given to the North West London Waste authority because Coleman can't be bothered to sort out the problems in his portfolio. It is clear that he thinks Coleman is not doing the job. Brian Coleman earns approx £120,000 from the public purse for doing his various part time jobs. He clearly isn't doing them very well. His colleagues are clearly sick of him, residents inconvenienced by the botched abolition of pay and display are sick of him, traders who are losing money because he's driven trade from the high streets are sick of him. It is time for Brian Coleman to go. Richard Cornelius must listen to the wise advice from his senior colleague and "take action" to sort Brian Coleman out.
