This is worthy of a spot in Private Eye

Brian Coleman is a Conservative member of the Greater London Assembly, he claims a fair bit of cash from the tax payer but doesn’t want to do so openly like every other member of the GLA.

Paul Waugh has the details, but Coleman’s comments are astounding:

“I won’t do it voluntarily. It’s none of the public’s business. They have coped well without knowing this kind of detail for more that 75 years.”

“They are not entitled to drool over our personal lives. I’m not going to help the mad, bad and the sad, the bloggers on the internet. I’m not pandering to mob rule. It undermines democracy to suggest that all MPs, all politicians are the spawn of beelzebub.

“Nobody is going to go into public life if they think the minutiae of their grocery bills are going to be looked over.”

Wind your neck in and shut up.

just get out!

Also on this man’s back (metaphorically) is Iain Dale and Tory Bear.
