Is Brian Coleman losing it? Tory cllr “goes mad” at shopkeepers

Tory councillor Brian Coleman has been accused of “going mad” after storming into high street stores and screaming at staff.

According to shop-owners on High Barnet’s high street, Coleman demanded that staff remove posters campaigning against his re-election. Anna Constantiou, owner of a hair salon on the street, explained how she felt forced to take down her poster:

“He was going mad and shouting. He was right in my face and wouldn’t leave when I asked him. He was intimidating.”

High Barnet’s shop-workers launched a poster campaign against Coleman after Barnet Council hiked car parking permit prices up from £42 to £100 per year and increased the price of visitors’ parking passes by 300%.

The posters featured slogans encouraging residents not to vote for Brian, including “Sack Brian”, “Anyone But Coleman” and Scrapbook’s personal favourite:

“Brian Coleman: Wanted for the murder of Barnet’s High Street”

Costing the taxpayer £120,000 per year, Coleman is one of the UK’s highest-paid councillors. Our post caused a storm on Twitter last week after he was caught calling a nurse “a twat”, then telling residents to “clear off”.

We trust the voters of London to will be giving Brian a (permanent) holiday on Thursday.

    It just shows that the Tories will hike anything up such as parking, which is really a stealth tax and then try and claim credit for lowering direct taxes such as council tax. They tax just as much or even more but in a stealthly way.

    Would his actions be described as a public disturbance? I am sure there is a punishment for such things, a Public Order Offense!
