Leadership on Transport and Environmental Matters in LB of Barnet
"After Brian Coleman was ousted from his role as Totteridge councillor on Barnet Borough Council, the Times Series takes a look back at some of his most controversial moments."
"Formerly a Totteridge councillor, he received 265 votes in the May 2014 election – which those present at the count pointed out was fewer than the number of his Twitter followers.
"... In May 2012, he was sacked from Barnet Council's cabinet at a Conservative Party meeting and removed from his post as cabinet member for environment after voters deserted the politician at the polls in the GLA elections.
"When he was later booted out of his role as the chairman of the London Fire Authority, firefighters said they were 'pleased to see the back of him'.
"Months later, he sparked more outrage by describing people in the public gallery at a council meeting as 'the sad, the mad and a couple of hags'.
"The former GLA member was also hauled in front of the council’s standards committee following complaints about offensive e-mails."
