Freer is well known for his charm and wit, having described the author of this blog as someone "coddled by family wealth" in a blog referring to the fact that I'd written a blog in memory of my mother who had passed away several days earlier. The reference was a reference to Freer's expactation that my Mum would be leaving me a nice little nestegg. As it happened, she'd already told the family that she'd left the cash to various charities, such as the Noah's Ark Childrens hospice, the Red Cross and the local Catholic Church. Personally I was proud of my mum for recognising that her offspring were financially secure and other people needed the money more. When challenged, Freer claimed his comments were "aimed at no one in particular". He later described the author of this blog as a "One Handed blogger" stating "you know what he's doing with his other hand whilst he's writing it". He made this comment in an interview as Leader of Barnet Council. At the time I found the comment quite amusing. Our computer is in the front room and I don't think my wife and kids would be too impressed if Freers observation was true, but I suppose it did give some insight into his own nocturnal habits on the internet maybe? I mean usually we base our views on how other people behave on what we ourselves do?
Anyway for your enjoyment, here is the exchange of emails. It appears Mr Freer replied to "The Bohemians" rather than some mysterious character, perhaps in his office team.

so tempting to say - you are all numb-nuts as i am not the owner of the property and it is they you should be dealing with about your presence!
