Yesterday I wrote to the Leader of the Council regarding his intentions regarding Brian Coleman. I had heard various things from members of his team and other people within Barnet. I suggested that rather than listening to rumours, it would be better if he gave a short statement. I also said that if he didn't want it attributed to say so. I always respect requests for confidentiality. Richard replies last night with the following message.
I trust that this clears up the status of Mr Colemans current role withing the Barnet Conservative Party and Barnet Council. Many thanks to Richard for his response.
I can`t really comment on any of this until the police decide if they are going to prosecute and the courts have decided what actually happened. Brian Coleman is innocent until proven guilty. The standards board cases are still alive.
