One of the highest paid councillors in the UK is under investigation after allegedly calling a member of the public “a twat”. Conservative Brian Coleman — an ally of Boris Johnson who is already the subject of a probe over accusations he dodged parking charges that he introduced — is accused of the outburst at a public meeting with young children present:

“The Conservative politician allegedly called psychiatric nurse Paul Merchant a “tw*t” before telling the Friern Barnet resident to “clear off” in front of a packed Hendon Town Hall.”

Cllr Coleman — pictured above asleep at his desk — will face the electorate next Thursday.

  1. I see he earns every halfpenny of his £120,000.

    I think in Scotland they get £15,000 for being a member of the council; £30,000 if they are a convenor of a committee and presumably the leader gets more as does the provost or lord provost.

    I doubt even the Lord mayor of Edinburgh would earn even half of this fellows take home.

  2. Nice to see him working so hard for his constituents! Lazy so and so, I hope he’s voted out next Thursday.

  3. You need to print loads of this pic and paste them up all over the borough concerned – with the logo WE ARE ALL IN IT TOGETHER -Snoreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
