Brian Coleman - "you odious toad"


Here's Brian 'Mr Toad' Coleman's latest outburst - at the London Assembly's Business Management and Administration Committee meeting yesterday. The jokes just write themselves.

  1. Its not actually the LFEPA meeting, its a meeting of the London Assembly's Business Management and Administration Committee held earlier yesterday.

    Still doesn't excuse the behaviour of course - which was even worse at the LFEPA meeting held later that afternoon!

  3. Dear God: surely such verbal abuse is some sort of disciplinary breach? I hope that someone present at this meeting will have the decency to make a formal complaint. But how funny to see yet another example of Coleman's frequent Freudian projections, in this case accusing someone of being a toad! Dear, dear, is something playing on your mind, Brian?

  4. Thoughts of pots and kettles spring to mind. Coleman has exceeded his usual capacity to offend. I suspect his comments do breach the members Code of Conduct. As this would be a second offence in two months, perhaps this time he will be given the order of the boot which he truly deserves.

  6. Anon - it appears that the comments were directed at GLA Member John Biggs. See: http://www.notthebarnettimes.co.uk/2009/10/coleman-does-it-yet-again.html

  7. Come on Mr Biggs, if it was you, do us all a favour and stand up for the many victims of Brian Coleman's rudeness by making a formal complaint. This incident was reminiscent of a toddler having a tantrum at nursery 'If you can't argue nicely'- well really: we are paying GLA members extremely generous salaries (and expenses) to represent the people of London, not act in this pathetically childish fashion.

  8. Even if Mr Biggs doesn’t make a formal complaint, I am not aware of any rule which would stop a member of the public complaining to the GLA’s Standards Committee.
