Richard Cornelius slams Brian Coleman after explosive blog
Disgraced councillor Brian Coleman has been branded a “wounded beast” after he posted an explosive blog post about his former Tory colleagues.
The former Barnet mayor, who was expelled from the party after being convicted of assault earlier this year, roasted many of Barnet’s sitting Tory members on his blog, King of Bling is Back.
Yesterday, he told Times Series his motivation for the outburst came after colleagues rejected his appeal against censure for two beaches of the members’ code of conduct on Tuesday.
Barnet Council’s leader Richard Cornelius said today: “His political death is inevitable. He’s a wounded beast lashing out.
“If he had few friends in the first place, he certainly has even fewer now. I feel sorry for him but he’s brought this on himself.
“It’s all very unnecessary but I’m never surprised by anything Brian does these days.”
When asked if Coleman is going to become a “nuisance”, Cllr Cornelius replied: “I don’t think so, so what can you do? I wasn’t worried about this when we expelled him.
“Sometimes you just have to do the right thing. I’ll leave it to the readers to decide if he’s bitter.”
The former GLA member yesterday denied he was bitter, saying: “I’m not bitter. I don’t do bitter. I have always told people the truth – the problem has been whether they like it.”
