Brian Coleman congratulates Andrew Dismore on his selection as Labour GLA Candidate

The friends of Mike Freer caught up with an old friend of ours recently. Brian Coleman is our larger than life GLA representive for Barnet and Camden. Brian is well known as one of the most hard working politicians in London. He is also well known for his other work, recently co-hosting a show on LBC with his old adversary, ex Mayor Ken Livingstone.

We asked him what he thought of Labour selecting Andrew Dismore to face him in the GLA elections in 2012. Brian told us he was thrilled. Brian said "The selection of Dismore has conclusively shown everybody that it's the same old Labour party". Brian will be keen to highlight the fact that before Matthew Offord beat him in Hendon, Dismore was the MP with one of the highest expense bills in the country. Despite living in London, Dismore claimed allowances for a second home. Unlike Brian, Dismore doesn't even live in Barnet, his main home being in the champagne socialist belt in Notting Hill. Recently Andrew Dismore has been leading opposition to the Etz Chaim Jewish free school in Mill Hill, despite a desperate need for school places for Jewish children in Mill Hill.

It should be an interesting battle and we look forward to Brian being re-elected with a much increased majority.

thank you for this: I am almost crying with laughter ... hard working Brian Coleman is attacking Andrew Dismore for high expense bills, and for his choice of home ...
oh dear me: glass houses, pots and ketttles, anyone?

Now fear not my dear Mrs. Angry, for Barnet and Camden will be safe as houses when our dear friend Cllr Bwian gets re-elected by mass acclaim from all right-thinking people in our fine boroughs. As for you Mrs. T, you saucy old minx, who would have thought it? Care to add to my dear old knicker-elastic collection? I do like the twang of the old elastic on the cheeks what!

so I've heard, darling: but then not unusual in a Tory councillor, is it?
