The Barnet Conservatives have scored a massive own goal. How stupid did they the think people of Barnet were? How did they think they could get away with the parking hikes which Coleman brought in?
When this blog started in October 2008, we were the only media outlet which was critical of Coleman in Barnet. We embarked on a mission to ensure that everyone in Barnet knew what Brian Coleman was really like. Over the last four years, people started to realise. Others started their own blogs, then the local press found their voice. I started blogging on the Times Group of local Newspapers. Brian Coleman mounted a campaign to get me sacked by the editor. He succeeded in persuading the editor of the Times to sack me for my robust stance against his troughing. I started the Barnet Eye blog in response. It seems that whilst Coleman persuaded the editor, the people of Barnet have sacked him. If I helped persuade them, then I am proud of that fact.
The Conservative Party must now take a long hard look at their policies in Barnet. It is clear One Barnet program is a millstone around their neck. They must now think again.
Tonight I will sink a few sherbets.
