I applaud Brian Coleman for speaking his mind.

I was present in the public gallery recently during Mayor’s Question Time when Labour Assembly Member John Biggs was continuously berating the mayor.

His constant interruptions were both irritating and obnoxious and nothing short of a feeble attempt at political point-scoring.

Perhaps Brian Coleman’s description of him as an “odious toad” should be regarded as a compliment, as I would have described him more akin to something a little more primate.
