Mike on the TV

Did any of you see the BBC news on Wednesday night? There was an interview with Mike where he spelled out the truth about the Future Shape. Rather predictably, there were the usual siren voices against him. Union leaders on soapboxes with megaphones. They must have been gutted when their protest got the BBC down to let Mike strut his stuff and put them in their place.

Why don't the unions ever come up with any sensible suggestions to save money. We are lucky to have a forward looking leader of the council who is prepared to take tough decisions. I really cannot understand why so many union members turned up when Mike said that all options were being examined. Do they think that a bunch of them standing around outside the town hall will make the slightest difference to anything? The days when anyone listened to big crowds of union bully boys shouting through megaphones are long gone. The sooner Mike sacks the lot of them, the better as far as I'm concerned !!!!!!!

Mike silences the critics !

Mike Freer is a busy man. Running a large organisation such as Barnet Council is a full time job. It seems that his sneering critics think that his main job is to answer ever more ridiculous questions placed on obscure blogs.

To keep us all in the picture, Mike has set up a blog and asked for questions. It seems to be beyond the wit of his critics that answering these questions is not Mike's top priority. Mike does it when he gets a minute. As he's council leader he has to check his facts (unlike his army of armchair critics).

Well for those of us who enjoy his blog, he's been on top form and put all of the local malcontents truly in their place. Do they say "Thanks Mike for taking the time to answer our questions" or do they whine that they haven't got the answer they wanted? I'll let you guess.

Have a look at Mike's Blog LEADERLISTENS.COM and see for yourself whether Mike allows questions on his blogs and gives proper answers.

Brave Mike stands up to the bigots

Read Mike Freer's latest leader listens blog. This comprehensively answers all of his armchair critics and shows the courage and leadership qualities that those of us who know Mike recognise on a daily basis. Sadly the Conservative party (like all of the parties) has a racist element and Mike firmly puts them in their place in his blog. He is prepared to stand up for the great British values of decency and tolerance. I don't suppose there are too many votes in the Tory heartlands to be had sticking up for single Nigerian mothers on benefits living in homes worth £1 Million at the Taxpayers expense, but as Mike quite rightly states:-

People claiming what they are rightfully entitled to should not become an object to be vilified by the media
In taking this principled stand, Mike has shown courage, leadership and decency. I don't suppose that any of the army of malcontents will have the guts to acknowledge this, will they?

Welcome to the Friends of Freer page

It seems that all of the bloggers in Barnet have it in for Mike Freer and his council colleagues. They are very hard working and do their best for the people of Barnet. Unlike some of the other bloggers, all I care about is fairness and balance.

I am setting this blog up so that the fairminded people of Barnet can leave posts telling us all of the good things that happen in Barnet and how Mike Freer's council is doing a great job.

I suppose I'll get a few comments from all of the regular suspects, but I expect these to be vastly outnumbered by the good and honest Barnet people who recognise what a great job barnet has done.

This blog is not for the bitter, cynical or twisted !!!!!
