Time to take down the picture celebrating convicted Coleman
Earlier this month Councillor Brian Coleman pleaded guilty to assault be beating of local Cafe owner Helen Michael. Many people are disgusted and appalled at men who physically assault women. Many people are of the opinion that such crimes are repulsive and would not want a man guilty of such offenses to be publicly celebrated by the London Borough in which they live. As an ex Mayor of Barnet, the disgraced Councillor has the honour of having his portrait hung in the Town Hall. The Barnet Eye believes it is totally inappropriate to celebrate the career of such a man. We suggest that Barnet Council should immediately remove the poster of Coleman as a message to anyone else who thinks that assaulting women is trivial.
