John Baldy has collated 101 reasons to sack Brian Coleman. They can be found here :-
Strangely, 101 doesn't even seem to scratch the surface.
I ask all of my Conservative friends to consider this. Just suppose they'd chosen someone else for the GLA election? Say for example a reasonable and sensible Tory such as Sachin Rajput? There would have been no posters littering the High Street demanding his sack for parking charges. There would be no "101 reasons to sack Sachin Rajput". Andrew Dismore wouldn't have been able to capitalise on his opponents unpopularity. Boris Johnson wouldn't have had to face embarrassing questions about parking every time he visited Barnet.
They would have had a decent candidate, who could have been swept in on the coat tails of Boris Johnson, who is very popular with many local Conservatives. The truth is that selecting Brian Coleman has been a massive own goal for the Conservatives. I suspect that the biggest beneficiaries of Coleman losing will be the local Conservatives, who may then be able to get back to being a sensible local association.
